    Adjustable Gas Block for Non Adjustable

    Got a .750 Adjustable on my .300blk.... really no need for it as she wants it all the way open anyway.

    Sentry 7 Clamp On Adjustable Gas Block

    Anyone wanting to swap a non-adjustable, low profile... plus bit of beer money my way?

    Interesting that you need full gas. What barrel length, gas system length are you running? With a can?

    Factory Subs at moment, 14.5" barrel, Carbine Length, with can.

    Short stroking at moment as well - will eject sometimes, but not pick up next round. was going to open up my gas block as next attempt, but figured while she was off, might as well swap over to fixed gas black too.

    Any ideas though, i'm all ears

    This. Increases maximum gas availability that you can then dial back with the adjustable block. Just don't fuck it up by going too big, or going through the bore and out the other side!

    Have checked alignment on gas block, and checked for gas leaks, so I think gas port opening is indeed next on list. Thanks guys.

    Yeah you'll wanna keep adjustable block on a 300blk, good for tuning to different loads, as mentioned above. Especially if you put a can on the end
