    Gas block, handguard and rangefinder

    Paladin machine and tool 300 blk switch block. Mean little beast. Can adjust from supers to subs to closed(for extra quiet sneakyness) on the fly. Only selling as I have moved to a low pro halfguard and this block was like 2mm too big.

    Also selling a Midwest industries 2 piece rail. Has been notched to access the switch lever, done properly though so tidy as. Comes with hand protectors and barrel nut.

    $230+pp for both or $160 for the handguard and $90 for the block.

    Bushnell scout arc 1000. Surplus to needs as I have a sig. Never used in the field, but seems to work fine of the deck ECT. Has archery mode and reads an angle.

    $200+pp

    No idea sorry man. It's been pre tuned/sized to work for a 300 with pistol gas so I wouldn't think so.

    Hey Nick when you say "reads an angle" do you mean it does TBR or just tells you the angle and you've gotta do the maths?
    I'm not great at maths.

    Does tbr at archery range then reads an angle out farther. So a little bit of maths or some angles on your drop chart

    @Nick-D I tracked down the guy who imported your Paladin gas block and got one off him. I think they are designed to work on .223 and 300 black - it is simply a .75 gas block that has a closed, half and fully open position which can be operated without the need for a tool. I think the way you fine tune it after that (if you have to) is by putting in a heavier or lighter buffer in. I am building a rifle in a few months with one of these gas blocks ....I paid a lot more than the $90 you are wanting and that was with no gas tube... They are from the USA and seem extremely well made.

    Hey mate,

    given the age of the rangefinder would you let it go for 150?
