Another innovative design of a common AR-15 part. Gasblocks in general are not that cool, but they are necessary. What is frustrating is when they leak, gas cut and fail. Most people don't inspect their gasblocks or pay much attention to them, so they should be bomb proof. That was the goal with this new design.
The Carbon Arms gas block is a non-adjustable, side clamp geometry that results in less thermal distortion, removes point loads and is very strong while reducing leakage. Low profile with a short length, it is the perfect gas block to go with the Nordic 18" competition barrels. Made of 416 stainless to match the barrel. 0.750" ID. Desinged for free float assemblies, the gas block should be installed at the shoulder for the gask block journal with a properly spaced gas port location.
