Loose Forearm on AR
The handguards on my AR are a tiny bit loose. They wooble slightly to the left and right (radially). Anyone know how to tighten it up?
I don't know if it did it when I bought it or if it started after I took them off to put the rails on. I didn't notice it until I had a foregrip attatched.

They move a little,only option to have a solid platform is to put on a freefloat quad rail forearm

My Bushmaster handgaurds move slightly as well, it doesnt much bother me. You may want to post this question at ARFCOM ... AR15.COM :: Forums :: AR-15

Yep---that's pretty much it. They do have a little side to side slop. Don't know of a quick cure.

I have the free float 4-rail. It's sturdy, and has a very nice weight to it. Also fairly comfortable to shoot with nothing mounted on it. (i originally was concerned it would tear my hand up, no so)
The muzzle end of a .45 pretty much says, "Go Away" in every language.
Fast is fine, accuracy is final. Learn to be slow in a hurry.
