an upper handguard configured to extend above a cocking lever housing of a firearm;
a receiver shroud extending rearward from the upper handguard and integrally formed with the upper handguard to form a single piece guard, the receiver shroud configured to simultaneously extend above a receiver of the firearm as the upper handguard extends above a cocking lever housing of the firearm, the receiver shroud including an uppermost portion having a mounting rail, a receiver shroud interior surface opposite the mounting rail, a first lateral sidewall on a first side of a longitudinal axis of the single piece guard extending downward from the mounting rail, and a second lateral sidewall on a second side of the longitudinal axis of the single piece guard extending downward from the mounting rail opposite the first lateral sidewall;
a first plug disposed in a first plug hole defined by the first lateral sidewall and extending toward the longitudinal axis of the single piece guard, the first plug including a first claw configured to engage a first ledge of the receiver;
a first fastener operably coupled to the first plug and extending within a first fastener hole transverse to the first plug hole defined by the first lateral sidewall;
a second plug disposed in a second plug hole defined by the second lateral sidewall and extending toward the longitudinal axis of the single piece guard, in a direction opposite the first plug, the second plug including a second claw configured to engage a second ledge of the receiver opposite the first ledge of the receiver; and
a second fastener operably coupled to the second plug and extending within a second fastener hole transverse to the second plug hole defined by the second lateral sidewall,
wherein the first and second fasteners are operable to engage the first and second claws with the first and second ledges respectively so that a portion of the receiver is clamped between the receiver shroud interior surface and the first and second claws in a clamp mode to secure the single piece guard to the firearm.
