Perfect for any rail system, these ultra-low profile gas blocks are the ideal companion for Faxon Firearms (or any other) barrels with a standard diameter gas journal. Made from high-strength steel, all our gas blocks are a matching black luster to our barrels.
For lightweight builds, the block is drilled through the middle of the profile. The gas block clamps on to the barrel using 3 allen keys on the bottom of the block.
*Faxon Firearms highly recommends the use of Loc-Tite or similar thread-locking compounds. Gas blocks will get very hot, so pick a compound according to your intended use of the firearm.
Gas block does not include the gas tube roll pin. Faxon includes gas tube roll pins with gas tubes.
I now own three barrels with this gas block from Faxon, I've put many rounds through them with no issues or failures. Great fit and light weight product that does exactly what it's suppose to do. Rohan Brown on 20th Feb 2017
Great fit and finish, looks awesome. I will say it is a very tight fit on the Faxon Socom profile barrel I ordered it with. It was a bit of a pain getting it installed, but hopefully since it is such a tight fit it will be less prone to loosening up over time. I'll post an updated review after I send some down range.

If you want to show off your barrel, this block is for you. The lightening cutout on the side lets the barrel come through and the Melonite finish matches perfectly with high end barrel coatings. No issues at all with fitting the gas tube, or fitting the block to the barrel. All in all, it does as expected with some extra zazz. Dave M. on 27th Jan 2017
I have used MANY of their barrels in 5.56, 300bo and 308. THEY ARE ALL AWESOME! James Yeager MFCEO Tactical Response on 28th Nov 2016
This is a very nice gas block. I wish they would have dimpled the barrel that I ordered with it. I don't like running a set screw gas block without dimpling the barrel.
The gas block is flawless though. Unknown on 4th Oct 2016
