S&W M&P 15 gas block
« on: September 29, 2013, 07:53:54 PM »
Hey,

I'm looking to buy a gas block for my M&P 15 chambered in 5.56 so I can remove the front sight. Not sure the diameter of the barrel but I heard a few different sizes from other forums. If you guys could let me know if anyone has one for sale or anything let me know.

Thanks

You plan to replace it with a front gas block with a rail on top, or a low profile gas block so that you can fit a mid/rifle length hand guard over it to free float the barrel?

If you are just going to fit a handguard over it, you can cut the A2 style front sight down and it will function as a low profile gas block and you won't have to buy one.

Sorry, should have specified the model. I have the Magpul version so it would be the low profile gas block. Didn't think of that, sounds like a better plan then buying a new gas block!

Thanks
