    But to try to work my pile down some, I've got some extra sight/gas blocks for a fal.

    Thanks for the offer. Unless the "new and not repaired" Romy G gas block isn't working I should be good Just goes to show how awful my $90 HF welder really is.

    I thought I described it... maybe not.

    I welded a bead on the bottom rear of the gas tube and milled it to shape. Being a tube, it liked to roll around in the vise when it was getting cut, so it isn't as clean as I'd hoped.

    I milled flats in both sides of the tube so that it just fits up into the RSB without the need for a "retainer" since the FAL-style clamshell handguards connect at a different point.

    That tube was reamed out for the piston, and a recess was cut on the front so it would stay attached to the gas block.

    Does that make sense now? I'm not sure if that is very clear.
