Without the tool?
if it's a standard handguard. You pull back on the D ring (big round slightly tapped ring between the handguard and the receiver. Then you can slide the handguards off. Pulling back on that D ring can be a bitch though.
If it's real hard to pull the ring back, put the butt of the rifle on the ground and use both hands to pull that ring down, that usually gets it well enough.
takes 2 hands if you don't have the tool. just get the tool. I think they are like $8 from CDT
i've never had a problem with removing mine w/o the tool, but Market Garden's way should work
Three hands helps the process - two to pull down on the D ring and one to remove the hand guard halves.
Yeah just use both hands to pull the ring down and have a friend peel off the halves for you.
Feel for your balls to see if you have any then grab the D ring pull down hard.
No shit...it's not that hard.
I think it depends on the rifle. I remember that the first few times on my bushy were a pain in the ass. My armalite had the fiberglass freefloat tube so it didnt matter.
I've owned quite a few different uppers in the past, some were harder then others to do and 3 hands would be helpful but I've always managed to do it with out a tool.
