Default Hand guard retainer

I need help please.
Can an AK hand guard retainer be modified to work on a Galil/R4?
I need 10 x hand guard retainers to trade for a Galil receiver. Anybody with some spare ones? I can trade for R4/5 parts.
Thank you

What kind of retainers are you looking for? Ones with carry handle and bipod provisons? I make both styles and have some original non carry handle models.

Let me know what your trying to do..optic mount?

I am looking for the retainer in front of the hand guard (between the hand guard and the gas block), not the one behind the hand guard. There is a guy with a Galil receiver who wants ten retainers to trade for it.
Thanks

The Galil hg retainer has a bump out on the inside to hold the hg in place. The AK ones do not have this. So to answer the question they are not interchangeable without modification. Also the hole diameter on the Galil unit is larger.
