    Hey all yeah just wondering if anybody has a suggestion on how I could fix my NcStar gas tube the issue is that the screws that hold the handguard to the gas tube are too long and go into the gas tube too deep so if I were to install and tighten the screws they pin my piston rod to the gas tube wall one thought was trying to find tiny lock washers to take up the space I also contacted NcStar about it still haven't heard anything back yet any suggestions would be appreciated
