    Jack pot!! Got lucky on GB

    Guy had an early L for sale on GB. I wasn't real excited about the whole rifle but it had a type 0 gas block. I didn't win the auction but asked the seller if he'd forward my info to the buyer. I wanted to trade him out the gas block for a newer model. Anyway, the seller had 3 unfired type 0s and some spares along with another barrel and a type 0 bolt.

    So you're set for suppressed set ups now, right?

    Think so. I've got 3 currently. 6 total covers all my bases and then some. Short uppers in 5.45, 5.56, 6.5g, 762x39. I never got into 6.8. Not sure valkyrie is going to stick around. I'd have to get a micro upper to run a type 0 on a 300blk. I am a little interested to see how a 300 would shoot with this block though.

    Let us know how it goes....I'd be interested in your results.

    I take it RA no longer has the Type 0 blocks?

    That's my understanding. They stopped supporting it before my first xcr in 09.... holy crap. Time flies

    Yep...I think my first was '08. It does fly by quick.

    Why not just update everything to the newer style?

    I actually went backwards. The type 0 is pretty restrictive so it's great for suppressed use. I've been using the second lowest setting on my 556 and 545 barrels because the lowest isn't quite enough. I had some good results with early type 3 setups but the latest ones don't seem to be as restrictive. The type 2s were OK.

    These are going to be strictly for short/ suppressed barrels. I'm using the type 3 on everything else.

    I'm happy with my Type 1s for supersonics....but I think the Type 3 is a better design and have swapped to it for something like 4 of my XCRs. Not only do you have a tighter fit with the gasblock to the gas tube with the Type 3, but more adjustability, no chance of launching the dial down range and I've found the flange on the Type 1s get bent over time and make them hard to change settings. That said, the Type 1 is way easier to access and clean. I think I weighed them and the Type 3 is actually heavier (not by much), which surprised me. If running exposed, I think the Type 1 looks better....though that's completely subjective. Big advantage to Type 3 is the ability to bury it inside the handguard.
