erm, if i recall correctly... those gas blocks just have set screws...

Unscrew them and slide it off.

have to take off the flash hider to fit it over the barrel.


umm.. I think there is a pin you have to punch out for the gas tube as well on the top there, Support it with a block of wood and tap it out.

Try gently tapping it on either side, if it seems to go easier on one side then that would be the way to do it, cant remeber if those pins are tapered or not.

Meaning, have to unscrew 2 screw under the gas block and it will come off. Is it same procedure to put stock a2 sight on?

Yes, there are two allen screws on the bottom of the block. Loosen them up, and pull the gas block off.

You can punch out the gas tube roll pin either before, or after removing the block.

The site that you had pictured is a clamp-on site, and would simply tighten those two screws on the side, to clamp it down...
