Aero Precision has just launched their new low profile Adjustable Gas Block for AR-15 rifles and pistols. Adjustable gas blocks add a tunable option for shooters looking to use suppressors, or to be able to adjust for varying loads that may otherwise be finicky with a standard gas block. The low profile aspect of Aero Precision’s Adjustable Gas Block allows mounting on any AR platform with a free floated barrel system. Aero Precision’s description of their Adjustable Gas system can be read below:
AERO PRECISION ADJUSTABLE GAS BLOCK
- Standard low-profile design provides great fit under slim profile free float handguards including the Aero Precision ATLAS series of handguards
- Adjustment screw is held in place by a spring and detent, providing repeatable audible “clicks” upon adjustment removing the need for secondary set screws that can come loose under recoil
- Custom machined stainless-steel adjustment screw provides 15 gas adjustment settings
- Carbon fouling is channeled to a sacrificial chamber to help prevent carbon locking, as well as provide an access point for solvent in the event carbon locking does occur
- User-serviceable design allows for service and cleaning of the gas system
- Machined from 4140 hardened steel
- Nitride coated
- Compatible with barrels utilizing a .750 gas block journal (.625, .875 and .936 coming soon!)
- Attaches to barrel via 10-32 x 3/16 knurled set screws
- Assembled Adjustable Gas Block
- One 6″ 3/32 adjustment wrench for easy gas block adjustment underneath installed handguard
- Replacement spring and detent included
Please note: We do not recommend the use of red threadlocker on the threads of the set screws. If you decide to use threadlocker we recommend using the non-permanent variety.
*DO NOT USE THREADLOCKER OF ANY KIND ON THE GAS BLOCK ADJUSTMENT SCREW.
Aero Precision states that the Block weighs 1.4 ounces for those that keep track of their rifle’s “LB’s”. They’ve listed their Adjustable Gas Block at $64.99 on their website.
