I don't know why they put them on so tight. I had to use my Geissele reaction rod and a pipe wrench to get mine off.

Took mine to a buddies shop. Took him 5 minutes.

I love this look and am on the fence of getting one.

My concern is move my suppressor around. I have a SilencerCo Hybrid and use it on my 300blk 16in barrel and mainly my P320. At some point I will get my 9in barrel AR kit, but would still want to move the suppressor around.

The 12in version (what I would like) would cover the barrel and suppressor.

How easy will it be to take the Hybrid on and off the MCX?

I like that Hybrid can! If I'm not mistaken, the Hybrid should clear the end of your 12" handguard by roughly 4" or so on a 9" barrel. However, your muzzle device will be under your hand guard by about the same distance, based on the Hybrid's 7.8" length. You might actually have to remove the hand guard to get the Hybrid off, depending on how it detaches. My Griffin is a taper-mount so I can just grab the exposed end and thread it off. My muzzle brake is also underneath the hand guard, but I've got the blast shield to replace the silencer with if I want to shoot it without the can.

I should have clarified the mount.

I'm using a Sig taper-to-shoulder spacer and the 5/8in direct thread mount. The direct thread mount gets tightened down to the Hybrid body with a spanner. Then I spin on the can and hand snug it. To remove the can I use a silicone hot pad and unscrew it. I've not yet had the direct thread mount stay attached to the barrel.

As long as the direct thread mount doesn't release from the body I should be good. The only issue would be that little taper-to-shoulder adaptor. Would there be enough room to get a thread cap or flash hider back on with the guard in place?

I guess the other way to look at this is I only use the direct thread adaptor on my MCX. Its the only rifle I presently own. For pistols I use the piston mount. I could really tighten down the direct thread mount to the barrel. Then hand tighten the body of the Hybrid to the mount. The idea would be on removal the body comes loose before the mount.

Yes, that sounds like the best approach, just leave the muzzle device on the barrel all the time if you don't need it on another rifle. Obviously, you wouldn't be able to shoot without the suppressor though, unless you can get something that threads onto the mount that's long enough to clear the hand guard.

You could just swap the handguards around as needed. They are "modular".

I've had mine off and on a few times and it's not too bad once you get the hang of it.

Leaving those screws loose and pressing down on the link is the key, it just won't line up otherwise.
Lancer took care of me on this one. It turns out that Sig actually makes two slightly different versions of the link. I was using the link from my carbine length handguard which will not fit right with the Lancer. I had to get the link from (presumably) an SBR/pistol length hand guard. Now it works/fits fantastic!

Many thanks to Lancer for working through this with me.

Isn't it a left hand thread like the mpx?

Never took my mcx apart

It's the same as an AR. 1/2x28 right hand.

I sure like the look of that handguard. Subbed for some more pics.

Do yall think with the 12" lancer guard would it clear the 11.5" barrel configuration if it has a SiCo ASR mount (brake or FH) on the end?
