AR-15 GAS PORT SIZES

Disclaimer: These are lists of compiled information from multiple sources. While we make our best effort to test and produce these should be considered for reference only. Any time you start messing with the gas port on your rifle you run the risk of destroying the barrel or causing it to be over gassed. It is much better to slowly work your way up to what you would be happy with.
