One critical aspect of precision shooting is stability, which can be significantly enhanced using guide plates.

Unpack the Product: Carefully unpack the guide plate and ensure that it is the correct product in good condition.
Prepare Your Firearm: Before you begin, make sure your firearm is unloaded and safe to handle. Remove the stock from the firearm if necessary.
Position the Guide Plate: Loosen the M-LOK T-nuts to the end of the bolt creating as large of a gap without removing the nuts. Place the guide plate on the M-LOK slots where you wish to install it, aligning the T-nuts to drop through the M-LOK slots. Make sure it is aligned properly.
Attach the Guide Plate: secure the guide plate to the M-LOK slots by tightening the screws. The T-nuts should rotate 90 degrees, then cinching the bench rest guide plate to the bottom of your stock.
Reassemble Your Firearm: If you removed the stock earlier, reattach it to your firearm.
Test the Installation: Safely test the guide plate by placing the rifle with attached guide plate into the front rest cradle. Adjust the tension to your desired resistance on the plate.
