DPMS SASS Gas Block Question


Recommended Posts

Do those barrels use a tapered gas block?  Can you get measurements for us?  For some reason, I remember reading something about tapered gas blocks on those barrels.  If you can measure at the shoulder, then about one inch forward, that should be good enough to see.

I have this one on my 20 " .936 bbl. ---

Gas Block, Titan, with Two Steel Compression Screws

—exclusive Fulton Armory design, compresssion fit so it can't work loose

—Choose .750" or .936"







And I have this one on my 16" bbl. 308.--

  Bull Barrel Gas Block



This gas block replaces your existing front sight and provides a simple, low profile gas block to your bull barrel. It clamps to the barrel using 3 Allen screws. This gas block has a bore diameter of .936 inches for bull barrels. Manufactured from aluminum and finished with a matte black anodize. Made in the U.

Now I'm not sure about the tapering thing , it would be the first that I have heard of that ,if true.It would not surprise me in the least ,if DPMS did that to keep there parts proprietary in nature.

They would have to set up completely new tooling to do that or if they have there bbl's farmed out , that co. would have to do the same .

I would like to see some measurements of the barrel at the gas block attachment area of the barrel .

Like I said , it would not surprise me if DPMS did some thing out of the ordinary to make you use there and only there ( for the time being ) parts.

Look what the did to there upper receiver rail height.

Whats so different about the SASS ?
