Witt Machine has carved out a name for themselves in the gun industry with their muzzle brakes. Now they are trying to tailor a gas block that is better suited for integrally suppressed uppers or pinned muzzle devices. Their newest product does not have a hip buzz-word name behind it. It is simply a 2-Piece Low-Profile, Adjustable Gas Block. With a name like that its not too tough to figure out what they are going for here.
Some people might say that its not much ingenuity to create this, but they are filling a void in the market. Currently, adjustable gas blocks exist. So do 2-piece gas blocks. No one though has made a 2-piece gas block that is also adjustable.
It is offered in two simple finishes of polished stainless steel or black oxide. They constructed these from 416 stainless steel which is by all rights very durable. What concerns me is the amount of screws used to hold it in place. In my experience of mounting optics or installing AR-15 parts for customers over the years, more screws does not always equate to more rigidity. It can become a delicate balance of ensuring all the screws are evenly tightened, none get stripped, and a fun game of is one side torqued down lower than the other?
Like all adjustable gas blocks, this will be great for anyone who flips between shooting suppressed and un-suppressed often. Also, this can help fine tune reloads through gas block adjustments for better accuracy.
The MSRP right now is set at an affordable $79 and with Witt Machine’s track record it should be a decent product.
