Looking for either a low profile block, or maybe one with a integrated flip up front sight (not sure yet but want to know the options) and haven't had any luck finding one for a .907 bbl. Any body know of one?

Any gas block can be opened up from 0.750 inches to whatever diameter you need. You need to have access to a milling machine and a boring bar to do so. It really is not very difficult.

I made a poor choice of words and I stand appropriately corrected. Should have said, "Any appropriate gas block can be opened up.... My mistake.

Model 1 Sales sells steel gas blocks in .750",850", and .938".

I bet their .850" could be opened up. Especially since it's steel.

This is for a Grendel Barrel isn't it??

If not, I do know that CSS (competition shooting sport) sells the Grendel (6.5mm) hunter series upper with a gas block sized at .907 inches (as their barrel has an OD of .907 under the gas block) with a picatinny top. This way you can put whatever sight up there you want. Here is the model I'm talking about:

If you enlarge the picture, you can see the gas block. Give Arne at CSS a call and see if he can help you. He's a book of knowledge and a good guy. Hope this helps!

i think he asked this over at 6.5grendel. I think he wants a hunter upper but with different sighting options.

yup, thats me I only ask this over here because it get s so much more traffic....I ask about the different styles because I'm undecided but want to know my options, I'm not a big fan of railed gas blocks but I just may leave it anyways....thanks for the help....

Roland,

Trust me, you're not the only one. I'm too am not too crazy about that gas block. A PRI low profile sure would be nice. Keep me update with which one you go with as I may follow in your footsteps.

Do you do this for stainless steel 6.5mm barrels as well?

Also, can I get SPR contour under HG (or fluted) and .750 from gas block out to FH? Thanks

thanks Randall, I'm going to think about it a bit and give you call later on. This particular barrel is blackened, but I don't really care what color it is so bead blasting may be the cheapest solution after the work is done...

i low profiled the railed one on my beowulf with a file and dremel. i dont think aa arms sells the low profile block by itself yet.

badger ordnance has a 15/16" block, but aluminum.
