I am assembling another carbine-length AR and was installing the gas tube when I noticed something... When I line up the rollpin to fit the tube inside my M.I. gas block, the gas port hole doesn't line up 100%. If I line up the gas port hole, then obviously the rollpin holes are off a tad.

Is this a big issue? The gas port hole isn't covered THAT much, but I just want to insure trouble-free operation. Will enough gas pass through the tube?

Sorry for the newb question. Thanks!

Thanks, Randall. Unfortunately, I don't have that luxury. If I install my gas tube as described (and as you have encountered), will I experience any problems?

Thanks again, Randall. Yeah, I can get the pin properly installed, but the gas port hole is just slightly blocked. I guess enough gas will get through to cycle the gun. Just wanted to make sure. Thanks for your input!
