    Nice looking, but other than looks, aren’t all gas blocks created pretty much equal? I’m shopping for one right now, and other than mounting style the only difference I see is price, and even that range is only ten or twelve bucks.

      Material maters a lot there. Aluminum ones (generally cheaper) will get worn fairly quick from the high heat and pressure that component is under. Go steel. Other than that its looks and size/weight.

      • Jim

        Agree. Go steel! This one is steel and price is not bad!

    I guess this is to address the problematic assembly of their MegaFins hand guards that don’t fit over gas blocks. It was necessary to install the gas block AFTED the hand guard due to the internal fins in the hand guard. Installing a gas block on a carbine gas system under a 12″ hand guard must have been quite a challenge. I’ve read about people installing them by pushing them in to position using long dowel rods. I’m still not sure how you’re supposed to remove the gas block if you ever need to remove the hand guards.

    Question though: I’ve been reading for a while, but I’m about to build an upper for the first time. Should I choose a set-screw or clamp-on gas block? I’m leading towards clamp-on, but I’m nervous.

      I have used a set-screw one and a clamp on one and liked them both. I installed the clamp block per directions with rockset on the screws. For the set screw one I dimpled the barrel and rockset the screws and I might end up staking the screws but they both are holding just fine so far. Really it’s just what type you like.

    • Ergo

      if your barrel is dimpled go with a setscrew. If your barrel is melonited go with a clamp on.

      I’ve seen both types fail so i usually drop the coin and have the lo pro pinned.

    Will this hold up to the abuse of an AR-10?

    the thing about strike industries is you have to ask them what the country of orgin is on their parts. They like to import stuff from tiawan.
