JonnyC308: Is your gas block a .936 or .750? A low profile .750 will fit fine, but the .936 is cutting it close and haven't seen anyone try the .936 low profile.
Shane Alfer: What is the contour on one of those? I have a Black Hole Weaponry bull barrel and dont know if an NSR will fit with the gas block? Is it standard profile?
JonnyC308: Noveske 16" recon barrel.
Shane Alfer: What kind of barrel are you running? It looks like a bull barrel.
JonnyC308: I used my best judgement and blue loctite lol. Just don't over do it and you should be fine w/out using the torque screwdriver.
strykeback01: Finally got my N4 barrel for my nsr rail but I'm seeing on directions that the screws need to be torqued to 30 inch pounds. Did you use one of these fancy expensive torque screwdrivers?
John Mahaney: I just bought 556 Tacticals 9" EVO rail for my SBR. With the flaming pic it looks pretty intense. It replaced a Spikes 7" SAR.
Franklin C: The Samson EVO is very nice. It uses the factory barrel nut. Works with the AFG2. Solid once mounted up. Not aggressive on the hands either. A lot of options of length, extended handguards, and extension pieces.
JonnyC308: The rail works great, no rotation problems w/ 65 lbs of torque. The AFG2 fits just fine, I heard the AFG1 w/ flaired sides doesn't fit.
John Mahaney: How has this rail held up? Does the fact that it doesnt have any anti rotational pins make a difference in its sturdiness? Im torn between this and a Samson Evo. Also I heard there were some issues when using an AFG on the NSR rail.
dcthrn: Just a tip: When using a crows foot "inline" with the torque wrench you are altering the torque value applied to the nut. There is a math formula to correct for this, or you could turn the crows foot 90 degrees to the wrench and say Forget Math!
Thumbs up for the video, thumbs down for that funky beer you like :)
JonnyC308: Thank you.
dphitch: Sweet rifle dude!
a38337: Very cool. Thanks!
JonnyC308: Thanks man, the 9in rail works just fine for me. If you buy the polymer panel set it comes with a small hand stop that I put at the end. This keeps me away from the gas block and gives you a point of reference for your grip. If you check out my video on the polymer panel install it will show you the location of the stop and section of rail(on the left) that I keep my light on. Hope that helps man!
a38337: JonnyC - great video. Noveske makes great stuff (have a NST upper and some other things, and have a NSR 9" upper with Switchblock on order).
Now that you've had the NSR for awhile, can you offer your thoughts on a few things?
Do you think the 9" NSR is long enough, not only for hand position on the handguard, but also for mounting lights, etc., and also for keeping your hand/fingers from touching the SB?
Thanks a lot!
JonnyC308: You need to use a torque wrench to get accurate ft/lbs. If you had a cresent wrench compatible with a 1/2in or 3/4 in torque wrench it would work.
kam thalongsengchanh: why couldnt you use a cresent wrench?
JonnyC308: It makes sure your barrel nut has a tight seal. Your kinda roughing up the metal bond between your upper and barrel nut. On the the third torque your good to go! And Noveske said so lol.
lazymo2: hi Jonny why do you tor it 3 times?
MrRelentlessassault: phase 5 hell yeah
blugrassmaniac: Hey man looks great! I'm waiting on Geissle to stock there rail and new gas block so I can switch out my Troy on my 14.5 BCM!
JonnyC308: You bet man, I'll pm you a list of tools and extra's. Worse case you can send me the parts and I'll put it together for ya.
strykeback01: Hey johnny ive watched your install videos and ar pistol builds many times. Just waiting for mega to release some uppers and novekse to get some of their 13.5 nsr rails out so i can begin the build.
My question. Since youve built quite a few. What are some must have tools and some you can live without to do a perfect job on a build. Im talking for lower and upper. Need advice on what build tools to order
myluv8684: Man great video thanks for the info, and nice upper job too
JonnyC308: Rguns barrel and receiver blocks.
lazywanker: Who makes the two orange blocks at the beginning of this video ?
JonnyC308: Love it, disipates heat well, tight fit no wiggle, has a slight gap between my upper and the rail.
Gregg Van Dycke: How you like the rail? how does it handle heat? is it nice and tight, no wiggle? does it fit tight with the upper receiver?
JonnyC308: Yeah bro he was a pioneer in the AR buisness, never to be replaced. Hope his legacy lives on through his family and friends.
kamrr4437: John Noveske was killed in a car accident last night man. His SUV went off the road and hit some boulders and he was ejected from the vehicle. We have lost a great AR manufacturer. He was 36 years old.
JonnyC308: Do you mean add a flip up front sight to this rail or use this rail w/ a standard A2 front sight block? Either way the answer is yes lol.
J.R.Y.Grim: Could you add an FSB to the front of the rail?
ogarciaz14: I always drink beer when working on my guns.
JonnyC308: I was looking at some SR22 pics and it looks like the NSR rail is going to be shorter than the receiver rail.
rob s: i have to ask, how tall is the rail from the hand guard to the top of the rail? i own a ruger SR 22 and i want to make sure the rails line up at the top, so the iron sights are the same height.
Burt0351: Are you going to put the same typ of finnish on your rail that is on your upper and lower?
JonnyC308: Thanks man, I used the same wrench alteration. It's my custom Noveske wrench now lol.
PrescientNotions: Actually, a pretty darn good video.
NSR rail does not come with the barrel wrench. As stated in the video it is a 1 and 1/16 inch and is pretty narrow. Buy a 1-1/6" crows claw with 1/2" drive. Amazon has as em, as stated in the video.
I used a 4" angle grinder to narrow the claw of the wrench, borrow one from a friend if you don't have one. It only takes 5 minutes or so to get it narrow.
I would never torque to 90lbs, the tighter you go the more likely you are to deform the upper.
Thank you for your video and your reply! I going to wait just a few weeks to see what other accessories Noveske has to directly go on to the rail without the 1913 being the interface between the two. It pretty expensive at $20 or more for the 1913.
JonnyC308: Yes as long as you have a micro/lo pro gas block it will fit under the NSR rail. Mine is the Noveske Switch block, which is adjustable so you don't want it to go under the rail. If you get on Noveske's web site they have the NSR over their lo pro gas block in all the rifles that are'nt switch blocked.
HW2800: Thanks for the info on the right gas block to use to go under the NSR handguard. I going to wait till I see another NSR install which has a low profile gas block and a longer NSR handguard. Very helpful!
HW2800: Wow! Your gas block was too high to go over the new NSR handguard. I almost purchase the 13.5" NSR model. Is your gas block a low profile like mine? If not I still have a chance with the NSR handguard.
MultiSr16: yes they do
kamrr4437: Good looking rail man. I like it because it not only looks good but its practical. Looks comfortable.
bluetunder40: Nice job my brother
the308capital: Yes. I ordered the rail form cheaper than dirt and I had to buy the correct barrel nut. Armalite, DPMS and Rock River 308s are all different from each other, just like the magazines.
JonnyC308: Thanks bro, i think it turned out well.
