Follow some expert gunsmiths at Brownells as they walk you through simple procedures for customizing, repairing, and maintaining your firearms. This weapons video tutorial will teach you how to install an accessory rail system on an AR-15 rifle.

Brownells has produced video instructions on how to change and install a two-piece four rail handguard with Picatinny rails on an AR15/M16.
