- Specially designed for the AR-15/M16 platform
- Weight: 5g
- Dimensions: Ø40 × 1.4mm (diameter × thickness)

Tools required: Snap ring pliers would be super useful
Installation notes: This can be done with a flat screwdriver if you are a patient gunnie but really snap ring pliers would prevent a lot of swearing
