DD probably won't tell you. A lot of companies consider stuff like gas port size to be proprietary, so unless you get someone to pull their gasblock off and pin gauge their gas port, you probably won't get the port size.

Secondly, the port size for a 10.5" 5.56 and a 10.5" 300BLK will be an apples oranges comparisons due to the pressure differences. Also, I believe the 10.5" 300 BL will require a pistol length gas system.

So basically, DD prob wont give you the size, and if you did get it it wouldn't be of any help to you.
