Anyone use these? I want to put a 12" railed handguard on a 14.5 upper with a perm. attached flash supressor and the 2 piece design means I can leave the supressor on and just cut the old gas block off. It says it will work with an guard that is 1 5/8 ID, does anyone know what handguards would work for that size? Thanks, Mike.

Try a samson or a troy. They are 2 piece FF handguards, so you won't really have to worry about the diameter of the gas block. Now if you go with a one piece like a Larue or DD, you may have to contact the manufacturer.

If you don't go with the 2 piece FF tubes, you will need to make sure that the new barrel nut will clear the flash hider; I would assume that they would. The barrel nut is pretty wide since it must go on the largest part of the barrel next to the receiver.

Are there any other 2 piece gasblocks that might work better in this type of situation? I'm looking for the same thing (slightly different reason).
