Apex handguard clears DPMS Railed Gas Block

Recommended Posts

I could not find information anywhere whether this would work or not, but I got my new APEX handguard and it fits nicely over the railed gas block on my oracle.

 

My rifle has the Koelbl single rail gas block (not the sportical version).

 

Having said that, after checking I switched out to an adjustable gas block from Red Barn Armory.

 

BTW this is my first 308AR and first post!

Welcome. I'd love to see the pictures of the clearances. I have two APEX handguards, both small and large formats. I know how tight their tolerances can be.

The clearances (especially on the top) are not large, but it should be adequate without any grinding on the Gas Block.  I already high-temp/med-strength loctited the new gas block in place, so I can't get pics.
