I haven't seen an example of the Omega with handguard cap removed, but I can't imagine the gap would be very large. I would just get the cap removed and leave it be.
Edit: The DC mount did work on the side rails, even with the handguard cap, it just could be a PITA to get it on and off. It usually entailed pulling all the rail covers off, and removing the light from the mount first, then took a fair amount of wiggling to get it off the rail and past the cap. Workable, just annoying.
