depends on which model your looking at. The original STG's did not have full length gas tubes. this eliminated the need to remove both the regulator and gas tube nut to remove the tube, but i believe they went to full length tubes due to dirt/debirs. although I cant see that that would be a problem during normal range use.

Short answer: DSA is trying to be authentic. (or possibly trying to save $)

Just the opposite. The full length tubes came first, long tubes were later. The long tubes make it more cumbersome than neccessary to clean the rifle.

Short tubes were later, you know what I mean.

Normally a short length gas tube is soldered into the gas block and is not meant to be removed. The long length gas tubes are threaded into the gas block and held in place by a crosspin. It is quite easy to remove the long length gas tube.

I got mixed up sorry. I should have also mentioned that the short ones were permanent.

But you get the gist of it...
