I'm not sure I understand...
Are you trying to make a middy out of a carbine barrel?

I don't think it's that easy, you would need to block off the orig. gas port and drill a new one.
(i.e. buy new barrel!)

I don't see why you would want to change the location of the gas block (if I reading your post right), which would involve drilling a new gas port and welding over the old one?, doesn't seem like the practical thing to do.

Short of plugging your current gas port and drilling another one, you are stuck with what you've got. If what you got works, don't worry about it.
