Picatinny Or Low Profile Options To Fit Your Application
Unique, all-steel gas blocks expand the versatility of your rifle by providing a variety of accessory rail and handguard mounting options. Especially helpful in customizing short-barrelled tactical rifles. Machined from bar stock for extra strength and rigidity, then mil-spec Parkerized for exceptional wear- and corrosion-resistance. One-piece, 4-Rail model features top/bottom and side rails that accept Weaver or Picatinny mounted, tactical accessories, including the Yankee Hill Gas Block Front Flip Sight. Secures to barrel with included setscrews. Low Profile version is a low and narrow, one-piece block designed to fit inside most free-float handguards; allows use of rifle length forearms on carbine length barrels for a clean, streamlined look and added gripping surface. Secures to barrel with included setscrews. Low Profile 2 is shorter and lighter than the Low Profile, and allows rifle length forearms to fit carbine-length barrels. Low Profile Slotted has a slot cut into the bottom for easy mounting and dismounting; slide the block into position and tighten the two pinch screws to snug it securely to the barrel. 2-Rail gas block is an easy-to-install, two-piece unit that clamps around the barrel using four hex screws; includes machined top and bottom Picatinny rails only. Single-Rail w/Lug & Swivel adds a top-side Picatinny rail for mounting accessories, and provides a bayonet lug and sling mount like an A2 gas block/front sight tower. Two-piece design clamps your rifle’s standard contour, .750" diameter barrel with four, capscrews—no need to remove muzzle brake or flash suppressor to install. Bayonet lug accepts a mil-spec bayonet or lug-mounted bipod, and pivoting, rubber-coated sling swivel accepts tactical slings up to 1¼" wide. Single Rail has four Picatinny slots on top. Clamps to your rifle’s standard contour, .750" O.D. barrel with two setscrews. Single-Rail A1 fits skinny .625" O.D. M16A1-style barrel and provides four Picatinny rail slots to let you install a clamp-on auxiliary “iron” sight or other accessory. Slides over barrel (flash hider must be removed to install) and clamps with two hex head screws. Specter model provides plenty of clearance to mount a free-float forearm that extends over the gas block, including Yankee Hill Specter handguards. Fits under any forearm with an inside diameter of 15⁄8" or greater. Easy to install two-piece design eliminates the need to remove a pinned or welded-on flash hider or muzzle brake. Clamps securely to barrel with four, hardened steel, hex-head cap screws.
