How smooth is the gas tube supposed to go into the gas key in the bolt carrier when installed correctly.?..the build I have now seems to move the gas tube a hair once it contacts the key...I have tweaked it a few angles but cant seem to have it totally insert passively. Kinda a dumb question..I have built quite a few ARs without giving it any real thought until now since I am building a precision platform...

If it bugs you then try and adjust it more. You can try bending the tube into place or line up the barrel nut teeth better.

Fix your gas tube, if you have got to bend it a tad, go ahead. There is no reason for your carrier key to drag.

thanks for the replies but thats not what I meant....how smoothly does the tube go into the key when it cycles...It kind of makes a "ting" noise and the tube slightly moves...Is that ok...or is it supposed to be totally silent and a passive fit.? Ive already bent it a few times ever so slightly but dont really know how passively its supposed to insert.
