    Im looking to replace the front sight post on my bcm upper for a low profile gas block and a Samson evolution handguard.


    this is the most hassle free low profile gas block correct? Aside from cutting and shaping my stock front site base this would be a direct replacement for the taper pins correct?

    Only part I need to order if so

    I think that is just an extended 6 o'clock set screw gas block that covers the taper pin scars. So hassle free would = you'd want to dimple the barrel; install, tighten, and check it; then set the screws.

    Adco will shave and park your FSB on the cheap.

    Quick turn around and excellent work too. Mine just got back.

    Well For 38$ I might as well send them it.saves me the hassle of cutting it down myself

    I guess I diddnt look close enough at that Troy,I thought I saw holes for the taper pins like factory.I was hoping to keep my front sight base uncut incase I ever wanted to change back

    Guess I'll man up and send it

    For $38 you can probably buy one already factory cut on ebay and save yours.

    Nothing wrong with that gas block. While I agree the most reliable option is to keep a gas block that is "pinned" with the taper pins, for a hobby gun it does not matter. Put some red loc tite on the set screws and don't over think it. Troy would not sell gas blocks like that if they were not reliable.

    The exact placement of the holes in the barrel for the taper pins differs between barrels, so there's no guaranteed way to have a drop-in, taper-pinned gas block.

    A shaved factory FSB is the most reliable and solid, followed by a professionally installed, pinned low profile, then a set-screw block with the barrel dimpled under the set screw(s).
