    ... it didn't come with a roll pin for the gas tube. Now what?
    And before you tell me to just use the one I had in my stock gas block, I can't. I destroyed it trying to get it out. :sad2:

    Why the hell wouldn't they provide something like that? Fucking stupid if you ask me.

    brownells will mail you one for their cheap shipping rate, maybe some place would put one in an envelope with a stamp for you.

    Yeah I could call them up and see what they say.

    Maybe I should call YHM and let them have it, it's stupid for them not to provide one with the gas block... you gotta have it anyway, and the thing is so small and costs cents on the dollar. There's no reason not to include it.

    take the gas block to your local hardware store, and tell them you need a roll pin for that hole.
    It'll probably be too long, then you'll have to cut it down.

    Because the fucker wouldn't come out. I hit it so hard that it split while inside and by the time I dug it out it was destroyed.

    I'm going to run up to ACE hardware tomorrow and see if they've got something first.
    If not maybe I'll hit you up on that offer.

    Actually, ace may not have it as my local one didn't (I was in there looking for a different size but they didn't have any). Home Depot does though.
