And what style: set screw/clamp/? Will be going under a FF rail.
I is so cumfused.
If I needed one I'd get a regular pinned fsb and just take the dremel to it. Seems like it'd be hard to beat for price and durability.
There is a tutorial floating around somewhere for doing it yourself.
This would be fine if my AR came with the standard front A2 sight, but it didn't.
Mine's a fucking square block with a tiny picatinny rail on top of it. And I don't want it anymore.
That isn't a problem. You'd have to take the FSB off anyways to cut it down, so just get a new FSB (still cheaper than pretty much anything) and then cut it down and then swap it in place of the one you have now. It'll end up cheaper and more robust than anything else.
I'll still have to pin it though, right? Also where should I look for just a standard FSB then?
Alright, so pick one of these up and then dremel the top off so it's flat?

Nevermind, I don't want to drill it and I'm not a qualified gunsmith.
So you already have an existing barrel without a fsb you're wanting to use then?
No, I have a barrel with a shitty FSB I don't want anymore, plus I'm adding a FF rail.
I have an M&P15 OR with that crappy ugly square block of metal for a FSB.
This is what I have:
I want to add a low-pro FSB and FF rails, preferably 10", and possibly the one l4zy is selling.
you can just stake the gas block
This if you plan on running a regular carbine gas system
Or if you really want get a vltor and this
So what're we up to for tools to deal with the hassle of properly chopping and fitting a stock FSB?
Anyone suggest just getting a Vltor lo pro block for $50?
Never used the others, I'd be tempted to buy a cheap one and install it with a divot on the barrel for one of the set screws.
If it were an option for his gun, I would. I think it'd probably take all of 5-10 minutes with a dremel and you're left with a gas block thats secured by two taper pins. Its cheaper and super secure with less work than a quick spank. Whats not to love? Of course I'm also one of the guys that would just stake his own gas key rather than buy a new bcg.
I have a Daniel Defense gas block that is just held on by the screws - it's not pinned. It is underneath my handguard and has had no issue. It is even slightly canted and is still fine. My carbine is perfectly gassed.
I have larue gb on a mid.And a vltor gb on another mid.No probs with either of them.Both barrels have dimples where the set screws go in place
I have a YHM for pencil barrels and it screws on...works fine.
stake your castle nutts bitches
The problem is, I'm stuck buying another FSB anyway, so if I'm going to do this, I minus whale pick up a nice one and do it right.
If my gun had come with a standard front sight, I'd have no problem dremeling it down and doing that.
