I want to change the gas block on my ORC to a rgular fixed front sight. The factory one only has one cross pin and it isn't as "long" as a startard FS. Can I do this with the factory barrel?

You can, but the barrel will have to be cut for the pins. ADCO charges $90-$130 to do it.

Well crap. What other gas blocks can I put on it then? Maybe a low profile?

I don't know the barrel OD off the top of my head, but I'll venture that someone makes a lo-pro gas block that would fit. What's wrong with the existing set up?

Visit Brownells' site and look at their gas block offerings.

I want to put a 9 inch FF rail on it.

If you're going to go lo-pro, why not get a longer rail? It will fit over a lo-pro block. There are a bunch of great folding front sights that are handguard rail mountable. JMO.
