  1. Thanks 98Z5V I'll be looking in to this immediately.
  2. So I've been poking around for quite some time now and have come with very little in terms of my search for a gas block that is available for my application. I'm doing a 6.5 creedmoor build I've been searching for and adjustable gas block and what I'm after seems to be unobtainable. I have a 20 inch proof barrel that comes with a .875 diameter, while finding an adjustable block in that size isn't hard the gas blocks that seem to be offered are all operated with a set screw that adjusts with an allen key and I would really like something with a selector switch with a few or more different positions or the ones that are offered in the configuration I want are for a smaller gas block diameter. I've talked to several companies that offer ones like it on their proprietary rifles (NEMO, Savage, etc) and they have told me they are not offered as a solo unit. The paladin machine blocks offered through teppo jutsu seem a bit rough and it looks as though they only come in an on/off selection. I might be asking a lot but is there a custom machine shop that knows firearms parts that anyone could recommend who might commission a custom build? Or maybe even more a pie in the sky request, could I possibly get one of the selector blocks in a smaller diameter and have the adjustable top cut off and fit to a properly sized fitting piece that would fit on barrel? Maybe I have my head in the clouds but I figure you guys will set me straight if I am.
  3. I already have the roller cam and gas key for an AR so its of no cost to me.
  4. So i was thinking of installing the POF roller cam in my build I'm currently doing. I saw that there is a kit for the AR15 that includes the modified gas key so that the key doesn't need to be removed every time you want to remove your bolt for cleaning. I've been searching online and cant seem to find any resources on the subject, I know the cam would have to be 308 specific but was wondering if the AR15 and AR10 gas keys are cross compatible.
  5. Thanks Robocop1051! I do very much like the look and the barrel nut looks rock solid. Do you know if the rail and guard can be cut and modified? Im going to be running a selector adjustable gas block and am hoping to be able to keep it under the handguard and still be able to access it from the side. I've heard carbon fiber is a nightmare to deal with so I wanted to know if it's even a possibility.
  6. the OBR style handguard only without the proprietary bolts to the upper.
  7. New here to the forums but I couldn't find any topics like this, I have been searching and searching to try and find the handguard the offers the stability, durability and look that I want. The handguard that I settled on was from Larue tactical however the guard is proprietary to the gun and can't be used on the one I am building and I would want to add and. My question is if there is a machine shop that offers a custom service to mill out a handgaurd that I want. I have talked to Unique ARs and they told me that were unable to build that design as they are limited to the tubes that they order and some of the local companies here that machine handguards are saying they wouldn't be able to fulfill that kind of order. I wanted to use a large barrel nut similar to either the Aero BAR barrel nut or the PRI MK12 style barrel nut. I feel like since this is a very specific order I would have to talk to someone who is not only a good machinist but familiar with firearms parts machining as well. I'm struggling to find anything and most of the places I talk to have resulted in dead ends with no direction of where to go next. Any help at all would be appreciated. I live in Washington state and would optimally like to deal with someone local but I am fully willing to deal with someone in another state.
