Adams Arms XLP Low Profile Gas Block

    Adams Arms recently released their new XLP Low Profile Gas Block. It’s 30% lighter than their standard AR-15 piston kit gas block (which comes with their kits that you install on a direct impingement AR-15) and 20% lighter than the standard pinned block that comes with their complete uppers and rifles. Unlike Adams Arms standard gas blocks their new low profile blocks fit under most AR-15 rails that use a standard barrel nut, a huge plus for those who want to use rails that extend past the gas block. The XLP Low Profile Gas Block has five adjustable settings and is available with the Adams Arms pistol, carbine, mid-length and rifle length conversion kits, uppers and complete rifles. Check out for more info.


    The perfect height to fit under most manufacturer rails, the new Adams Arms XLP Low Profile Gas Block is for the shooting enthusiast who wants a little extra rail real estate! The XLP offers adjustable gas settings for various applications and doesn’t vent directly to atmospheric pressure which eliminates flash signature and super sonic crack making it optimal for night vision and suppressed fire.
