Adjustable Gas block (slimline) for AR15 type rifles – AGB3 0.625" Barrels
The AGB3 is our new adjustable gas block for AR15 rifles with 0.625” diameter barrel journal. This new slimmed-down model is designed to fit inside the new style long/slim forend tubes of 1.2” internal diameter (31mm) or larger, or outside of the forend assembly if required. Works well with the FAXON ultralite barrels, or GI .625” barrels. The AGB3 block is slimmer and shallower than our AGB2, and the design has been optimised for the 0.625” barrels.
Like our original AGB1 and AGB2 models, this unique design allows the shooter to easily and quickly adjust the standard AR gas system to restrict or prevent ‘over-gassing’ effects which may cause premature parts breakage, or other problems like excessive gas blowback into the shooters eyes, particularly when these rifles are used in conjunction with a suppressor. This unit is designed for best strength and durability, and does not have any flimsy or weak screw systems as found on some imported products. Aluminium is deliberately NOT used for the gas block body. Larger, stronger cap screws are used to avoid stripping the hex-slots, and more ergonomic and novel angled main-screw design for ease of adjustment – all from the front of the gas block. This gas-restriction system achieves slightly higher bullet velocity than ‘bleed-off’ gas block systems, and is quieter with a suppressor.
(Note that some ‘bleed-off system’ claimed benefits of better erosion resistance compared with common ‘restriction’ type gas blocks, etc. are overstated and (in my opinion) misleading.) In terms of durability, ease of use and reliability, the AGB1, AGB2, and the new AGB3 gas blocks are the equal or better of any other (direct impingement) AR gas block system on the market anywhere in the world.
