Is it a picatinny gas block? If so I'd go with the Surefire M73 I think. Lightweight, durable, comes with covers, small and easy to install. If it's not I'd go UTG.

I hear you Beav. That's why I'm slowly getting the parts together for my build because it would hurt my wallet way too much if done all at once. I can't afford to drop the kind of coin that some of our serious collectors on here do. Maybe someday I will be able to

Enjoy your Christmas, brothers. It could very well be our last one before the SHTF.

Why? It's an added cost that isn't needed. A standard carbine length unit will work. You can mount a folding front sight to the gas block.

Got those magpuls coming from Stephen . Was looking to not have that style of front site but it is a great idea.

I was thinking if I do the carbine length then could I mount one of those offset jobs to the gas block.

Can't, the gas rail isn't in line with the upper rail.

But the magpuls will work with the free float set up and maybe some optics down the road correct.

If the top of the gas block isn't the same height as the upper's flat top wouldn't that cause a problem?

Haha . That's why I don't drink redbull , I don't want to get caught in an wind storm and take off.


So if I go with the 13" I'll have to get a low profile gas block considering the stock is a picatinny type.

Looks like with either one you would need a lo pro gas block.
