I have a Bushmaster V-Match which comes with a low profile gas block and I would like to install a standard front sight post/gas block. I have had trouble finding one of these for purchase and have heard that there are complications with installing one. Who sells them, and is it any harder to install than any other gas block?

THANKS

You can buy the standard FSB from anyone selling ARs for the most part, (I'd get one from Bushmaster were it me).

And yes they are and will be more difficult to install than say simply replacing your current low profile gas block w/ a "rail" mounted low profile type and adding the sight to the top of the rail.

Its a big deal to do that, best thing to do would be to send it to ADCO, I think they charge 85? for both the FSB and install.

I don't remember who (someone will jump in soon with the answer), but you can get a FSB that uses set screws instead of pins.

There was someone here selling a jig to make the flats for the set screws.
