Default Magpul handguards and arsenal folding stock question

I just put this magpul hand guard on my arsenal slr-106. I've liked the magpul handguard on other rifles, especially when combined with the ultimak. I find the shape of the handguard keeps my fingers from creeping towards the hot gas tube.

However, my side folding stock no longer completely closes. When folded, the magpul handguard keeps it from completely snapping in place. Not a huge deal, but I would still like to be able to lock it down. Does anyone have a solution for this? I'm guessing just taking a Dremel tool to it will be my main option. Has anyone tried it?

I have an slr107cr and a magpul zhukov up front and mine closes all the way. Theres a few mm of clearance too, its not a tight fit.

1st mark on the magpul stock where it is hitting then remove from rifle. now take a file (required as part of ak files membership) and file down that area. test fit, repeat as needed.

that is what i did for my 104

Yep, file or Dremel. Just go slow and take a little off at a time until it locks.

inhiliator5000: That fits perfectly. Not an inch to spare. Wonder why my 106 is different.

Took some filing, but you can hardly tell. Shaved probably 2 mm off, and now it locks up nice and tight. The ultimak made it a pain in the butt, but now it's G2G.

I had to shave down the back left corner of my Magpul handguard, too, for my SLR107 folder to latch to the left side. I marked it with a grease pencil then used a hacksaw and a Dremel and then finished with some sandpaper. Pretty easy, just take your time and test fit often.
