If you were pinning a device, I would get a two piece.

Got any suggestions for gas blocks? Adjustable?  Clamp-on or solid? SLS or Superlative or ? I think I need something "low profile" to fit inside handguards. And for a 16" 338 federal, will a 10" length handguard be too short? Should I go with 12" or 15" instead?

Of course I can't recall the appropriate size blocks for the barrels... 

10" rail oughta work just fine with that barrel  - the rail will still cover the 9" midlength gas system.  Gas block diameter will need to be 0.750".  Here's mine with an 11" rail:

Yeah, that's the one! 😁 In 6.5 Creedmoor, SS fluted satin finish. The 338 Federal is a 16" SS fluted, but I don't recall which model they had available so I have not ordered the gas block for that one. It may also be big diameter.

Ok, now both Superlative Arms adjustabls gas blocks are here. .750 for the 16" 338 federal and .875 for the 20" 6.5 Creedmoor (Wilson Combat barrels). I got a regular block with the 18" 308 barrel from BA. I  am pretty close to having all the parts now. Sunday should be bin sorting day.

Yep, I need to pack up tools and head to DNPs place for the weekend.  I have every other weekend off - the between weekends, i work Saturdays 9~1. 

EDIT - This just hit me - head over here for the Spring Shoot.  We build them all, and break them in right then...   :banana:

Now you're just trying to get out of a drive over to CA. Which isn't a horrible thing. It's a little cold at the ranch right now. Grounds smoked themselves in the trailer somehow. I've got them wire nutted together and can run the power, but I need to throw a new bus in this weekend.

Are there any electricians on this forum? It looks to me like all those wires are cooked and need replacement.
