Is there any difference in whether a port should be located in the land or groove of a barrels rifling?
Furthermore, I've been advised that a port that has been located in a portion of rifling that bisects a land AND a groove has no effect on accuracy... True/False?
I Google'd it up and there...
My opinion: Suppressing gas guns is just not a good Idea.
Why, Its kinda like building a 1200 HP car and putting a Muffler on it and a Parachute behind it.
As the bullet exits the muzzle and into the can all the Gas, Carbon, Unburnt powder Etc now sneaks into the muzzle and back into the...
Can you guys get your op rods out with out removing the gas cylinder? All the books out there say remove the gas cylinder, and then remove the rod. Talk has it that removing the gas cylinder to much will loosen up the barrel splines over time losing accuracy. By the way I cant get my op rod...
Somebody posted a similar post on the rifle forum but I have the same issue. I was out shooting my DPMS 308 LR today it is an 18in barrel. I've shot less than 100 rounds through it and I bought it new. It has shot great until today. I shot about 10 rounds and then it started short stroking and...
i have a dpms lr 308 that i had a conversion done to make it an lrt sass. problem with it is that once the gun heats up it short strokes. it will still eject cartridges but the bolt doesn't come back far enough to strip a new round from the magazine. an ideas?
The question pretty much asks it all. I love the FAL platform but still haven't mastered the cleaning of the gas tube. Do you use a bore snake, rod and patch (give jag and patch size here) or some other way to clean the gas tube?? I could ask this question at the Fal Files but...
is there any reason to have an adjustable gas block on an ar-10 if you never plan on using a suppressor?........and if not is replacing the factory block something one who is not a gunsmith should attempt?
I've read up a lot on how the LMT's and LWRC's stack up against each other but does anyone have any experience with Patriot Ordnance Factory (http://www.pof-usa.com/)? If so how do these compare?
Thanks in advance, Drew
im going to get an AR when funds approve, and i want to make the most informed decision possible,
my question is about the differences in gas system length. like carbine mid and rifle
is one more reliable, durable, etc?
thanks in advance
I'm building another upper but up until recently had never seen the piston style uppers. Can I build this style with a regular bare upper and lower, or are the parts specific to the piston type? And is there anywhere I can get schematics or detailed info on them?
Anyone know if a Ciener kit or the Spike's Tactical version of this kit can be used in a gas piston .223 upper?
I know the .22 is a pretty dirty round to fire. Does using one of these kits get the really nasty fouling coated into the gas tube of a direct inpingement AR?
Does the Spike's...
Hi Hide members, I know many of you guys are AR experts. I have researched the superior aspects of a piston AR rifle vs gas AR rifle. I know now Bushmaster makes a piston version of the AR. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge regarding this AR version? Particularly, can I put this...
Ok so I'm thinking about switching to a piston setup on my AR. I have 2 questions though.
Does anyone have or used the Bushmaster setup? Any problems?
The AR I want to install this on has a MI low profile gas block and MI 10" FF railed handgurds. Will this setup work with my gas...
I know there are some Kick-Ass (No offense Captain) Gas Guns out there! Just got my latest from dmg308! Shoots about 1.5-2MOA with Wolf ammo. Better than MOC (Minute of Chest)!

I have a question about gas blocks for AR's. Can you use an AR15 gas block on DPMS lr308's assuming the gas block locations are the same specs in diameter? I would like to build a 308 but find no gas blocks that are necessarily specific for them. I was thinking an Vltor, larue .750 size...
