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 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
I bought this Faxon Gas Block and tube to go on my new Faxon 16" 300 Blackout Barrel. I loved the fact that Faxon went the xtra mile to use a Three(3) screw system on the block to firmly secure it to the barrel, adding a little blue Loctite on the screws to insure against possible failure. Eliminating the need to dimple the barrel really appealed to me as I hate modifying any barrel by removing the nitride finish in the process, causing an immediate place for rust to form. There was a slight invisible burr on inside of block preventing easy install, which I quickly removed simply using some Scotch Brite, which now allowed the block to slip right on. Installation of gas block and tube was a snap. From the barrel to the block, you get quality parts when you deal with Faxon. I look fwd to my next purchase from them. I will be all eyes on their website this coming Black Friday, for sure. Unknown on 30th Sep 2016

Nicely built and well priced, An adjustable gas valve would be an improvement for the 308. Dick in Springhill, FL on 12th Jul 2016
