these mcfarland gas rings of the one piece type--anybody running them?
anybody have any problems solved by running them?
anybody have problems after running them?
i am just trying to figure out if there worthwhile or more the
"mall-ninjas just got to have them because that is what all the kool mall-ninjas have in their AR's!"
i have never seen a need for them--but the one piece gap-less ring looks logical but is it?:rockin:

I bought one just to shut my friend up about how much better because of x,y, and z, reasons. I wish I could tell you how it works but it's sitting in a box of parts right now I was going to use it on my last build but I forgot about it it's going to be about a month before I got out shooting Uhhh. Ill put it in my range bag and try it out the next time I'm out and let you know
Till this thread I forgot all about

I think standard gas rings have been serving just fine in thousands of AR all over the world for many years. Mall ninja stuff.

well i haven't had any problems with the stock rings so far. the only iffy set of rings i got is on the model 1 7.62x39 bolt. and i can't really find a damn thing wrong with them so far.
when i was having a intermittent short-stroke problem with the 7.62x39 car build i drilled out the gas port one size larger.problem solved--but?
now if these things worked like they claim it might have had enough gas by just adding the gap-less ring--to cycle correctly???
the good thing about the Mcfarland gap-less ring is they don't cost much. you not even risking a 20rd box of ammo as far as they cost-- it might be the thing if you got an AR that is all-most working.
