Does anyone make a gas block only for the superlight barrel? .625 under the front sight.

Original early AR FSB/gas block was 0.625 inches diameter. I have one. Charles.

Ha! I posted about this a while back and didn't get any hits.

YHM makes a Gas Block with a rail now for .625 barrels.

Set with a pair of allen screws. Works extremely well.

It is par# YHM 9385A. Brightflashlights had them last I checked (and where I ordered from).

I guess I should have been more specific. I was not looking for entire front sight I was looking for the low profile to go under the handguard.

With that being said, I like the La Rue set up, but I see that it has two set screws instead of the roll pins that the normal gas block/frint sight has. How does this lock up?

usually you dimple the barrel where the gas block screws will sit but if it catches the slots that are already there then your should be good to go. with of little loctite that is
