Re: LMT 10.25" blackout barrel

You may have to open up the gas port to get it to function properly, but I understand that is less troublesome than with even shorter barrels.

Works beautifully w subs on the open setting and supers on the low gas flow setting. Has its own lower. Shoots subs to <1 MOA at 100 yards. ...

Re: Correct length of gas tube for CMMG pistol position??

Found a longer vernier caliper and was able to get a better measurement of the exposed gas tube inside the upper of the 8.5" ... is 0.936". Compares to 0.950" for a different upper. So I don't think that's likely to be the problem. A rough measure of the gas port diameter is 0.096" Will find a set o...

Re: Stability and barrel length

I do understand that the machinist I use is very moderate in cost ... but his work is superb. i have 13x40 lathe with a 6 jaw set-true chuck. When I check his work with a Starrett "last word" dial gauge it has never more than quivered. Been thinkin' about it though ... and I really hate to take apar...

Guys, I have a pistol gassed 16" with a three way switch block. I happen to like it as am able to run a variety of powders for both supersonic and subsonic applications. Has been very accurate with 2400 and 220 gr SMKs and 225 gr Hornady OTMs with <1" 100 yard groups and SDs less than 20 on velocity...
