what a weekend at the Raleigh Gun Show - I'll save the negative for another thread.

The good part - Del-Ton - first class outfit.

Bought an ARMS 58M and a PRI flip up FS.

Got home and went to work on the 6721. Removed handguards, gas tube, FSB (no problem with the "socket" trick), dremmel'd the delta ring (no problem), removed the delta ring retaining springs (dremmel surgery - perfect). Now I'm ready to re assemble.

We are a no go on the gas tube houston - the Colt gas tube is not even close to matching the diameter of the PRI flip up. Am I supposed to use a special gas tube for the PRI? Has anybody experienced this before? Any suggestions would be great.

Thanks for the reply

let me try this to get some more feedback...

what should the fit be like between the gas tube and the FSB?

How much tollerance is ok?

If I haveto modify should I take the metal off the gas tube or ream the front site?

Thanks again Bravo...

Both are clean - I'll give them a call. I wish I could take a picture that would show the difference in the OD of the tube and ID of the PRI FSB.
