Anyone try a MGI adjustable gas tube ?

Pros and cons ?

Trying to stop carbine bolt bounce and have a soft/smooth recoil
Installed a Vltor A5 tube and buffer on one wepon, it's nice but is over $100
The MGI tube is less than half that
So A5 or MGI or both ?

I'd go with the A5.

What size is your gas port?

Have 4 different weapons and calibers, not including the one with A5 installed

Are you having noticeable carrier bounce, and is it causing malfunctions? Are you running full auto?

I have an A5 on my machinegun, and it's very smooth, and runs at a nice controllable rate.

The MGI works great until you start doing magdumps.
576 rounds in 1.5 minutes will cause it to rupture.

This was with 30 round mags... not betamags.


If its for a semi application then i recommned it

Just keep the allen wrench duct taped to the inside of the grip.

No FA, Semi only
No real malfunctions, just want a smoother/softer rifle

The A5 system works just like a standard A2 stock as far as recoil
but thought I could get a little more with the MGI

If you just want to tame recoil, I'd go with the A5.

Yes on the recoil
With all the different ammo out with all the different power levels
just thought maybe adding the MGI is a good thing
In 556 I shoot everything from M855 to off the shelf wally crap, no steel

In some of the others it's everything from Russan Mill to Yugo to Wolf black to Wolf MC to ?

If your using different uppers and different ammo I would use neither. If you are the edge of smoothness with 5.56 then wolf 223 will not cycle, and your different uppers and calibers will all be different also. You can keep standard and xtra power buffer springs on hand, along with a variety of buffers and find the fit for each.

Complete weapons in different calibers

NO steel cased in 556 = No Wolf

I think you missed the point. The A5 will allow you to shoot almost any ammo. It just like a A2 Rifle Stock, with no jolt
like the CAR Stock

With the adjustable tube you don't need a bunch of parts for each ammo, no changing buffers and springs, so
just trying to see if the MGI tubes are any good and if they will work with the A5. Or should I just run the A5
and shit can any ammo that won't cycle
