Q: how much does your riflespeed gas controls weigh for .750 profile?

Asked by: ace - 11/13/2022
A: Depending on model, Gas Controls weight between 3.1oz and 4.5 oz. For reference, a fixed low-profile gas block like the one on the Mk12 SPR is approximately 1.4oz and a fixed front sight base like the one on any M16 or M4 is 4.7oz. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: Hi, looking to add one of your Gas Blocks to a DPMS High LR308 I am Building. Barrel is a 18' Criterion Hybrid profile with a Rifle length Gas system, And planning on using a SLR hand guard in either 15 or 16 inch length. I believe the LR308 gas tubes are the same length as AR's, meaning the Rifle length should put the gas block at the 12 inch mark. Do you have a suggestion on which length control should be used with this combo of parts? Appreciate it!

Asked by: Mike D - 11/13/2022
A: The most certain way to determine fitment is to use the Configurator found here: https://www.riflespeed.com/Choose-your-Gas-Control_ep_41.html

It looks like the RS7533 will work for you, but be sure to go through the Configurator process to be certain. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: I have an aero precision upper with a 11.5", .750 barrel. The handguard is the atlas R. My current unnamed gas block BARELY fits in this handguard and I assume that your rifle speed gas block is larger and more robust. Do you think it will fit? Do u have any diagrams anywhere showing the dimensions? Thanks a lot!!!

Asked by: Gregory Chinn - 11/1/2022
A: There are dimensioned drawings under the "Fitment" tab on the Gas Control page. The Atlas series from Aero is not compatible due to the incomplete machining in the gas-tube-channel area.

Q: What is the reason this gas block does not bleed off excess gas in any given setting? If this gas block doesnt bleed off excess pressure, wont my suppressed rifle blowback stay the same?

Asked by: Ryan - 10/24/2022
A: Ryan, excess gas is vented behind the projectile when it exits the muzzle. The key to reducing blowback is to keep the bolt locked longer to allow the pressure to subside before unlocking occurs. The idea that an incredibly tiny "vent" in a gas block is going to reroute and "bleed off" gas that would otherwise go out either end of the barrel or down the gas tube, all of which are larger than the "vent" is hype, at best.

With these resources you can try entering different handguard lengths to determine which models will work best for you. The 10.5" barreled carbine on the homepage is wearing a BCM MCMR8 handguard. Midwest Industries also makes a good 8" handguard that works well with the 10.3" or 10.5" carbines. You will need a straight carbine-length gas tube if your barrel uses a carbine-length gas system.

Q: Hello, I have a 11.5 Criterion SBR barrel that uses a carbine gas tube. I plan on using a BCM MCMR-10 rail but it does state that the actual length of the rail is 10.5. When using your Gas Block Configurator, Inputting a 11.5 inch barrel, Carbine gas system, and 10 inch rail it shows that the RS7533 will work. My only worry is that when I choose the 10.5 inch rail it shows nothing works. Do you recommend I need a true 10 inch rail/ shorter rail or would the RS7533 work in this instance. Thank you for your time, Dylan H.

Asked by: Dylan H - 9/30/2022
A: Dylan, 10" is max for that setup. The extended ears on the BCM handguard will make it difficult to reach the Control Knob. An MCMR9 would be a good solution that won't require that you remove the barrel nut.

Q: Can this be used on a rifle length 5.56 mm both on NORMAL MODE and COMPLETELY CLOSED OFF just by turning the adjustment? Or are the two too far apart? Thanks!

Asked by: Keith Mumble - 8/10/2022
A: Gas Controls are completely modular so you can select the amount of restriction you want by choosing a Plunger size that accomplishes what you want. You'll need to work with your configuration, ammo, suppressor to determine which Plunger does what you want. Gas Controls are not designed to shut off gas with supersonic loads as there is no reason to do this, but you can select a Plunger that will prevent the bolt from unlocking if that's what you want to do.

Q: Your product won’t fit my hand guard/barrel combo. 9” hand guard, 10.5” barrel and pistol length gas port. If I mill away windows on my hand guard (because I don’t want to get a shorter one right now), so that my finger tips can get to opposite ends of the device, will I have enough strength to turn and adjust the gas port? Basically, how hard is it to turn the device?

Asked by: Pete - 8/9/2022
A: That's doable. The Control Knobs are intentionally hard to turn, but not so much that you can't do what you're describing. I'd recommend the RS7519 so you'll have a larger diameter COntrol Knob to turn.

Q: Two questions: First: Will this work with a 7.62x39 build (such as PSA's KS47)? I only ask because the whole testing thing requires a locking back upper, and 7,62 doesn't do that.

Q: I have a Noveske CQB Barrel with a pinned block. Can the Riflespeed block re-use the same pin location?

Asked by: Mike - 7/26/2022
A: The pin position on a Gas Control is forward of most pin positions. This allows Gas Controls to be installed on previously drilled barrels without being dependent on the previous pin location. We don't have a barrel like yours to measure, but we do have a dimensioned drawing you can reference.

Q: Hello, My rifle is BCM 12.5" barrel and MCMR 10" handguard (Actual size is 10.5"). According configurator I need RS7543 option. But I did some calculations and think that RS7533 options should work also. It will protrude enough to dial it for adjustments. I am asking because RS7533 is available for sale, but RS7543 not. I need your advice, buy RS7533 option or wait for RS7543 option for availability? Can you tell me ETA for RS7543? Thanks, David.

Asked by: David Gigauri - 7/26/2022
A: You'll need an RS7543 with a 10.5" handguard. We are working to have those back on the website soon.

Q: Ruger AR556. Carbine length. 9" handguard. 10.5 " barrel. I know the shortest gas control would almost completely be sitting under the handguard with little sticking out to grip but is this possible? And how hard is it to turn the control assuming I would have a little less then 0.25" to grip?

Asked by: Edward - 7/16/2022
A: It is definitely possible, but adjustments will be more difficult than desired. We've had customer reports of similar setups working fine. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: Can this be used spaced off the barrel shoulder with a drop in handguard cap and still function? Port size big enough?

Asked by: Kyle - 7/15/2022
A: Gas Controls are not designed to be used with a handguard retainer and have not been tested in that role. Your gunsmith may be able to move the barrel's gas-journal shoulder back by the thickness of your handguard retainer to create enough clearance. Thanks for your interest in RIflespeed.

Q: I have a Sith&Wesson MP10 stock 16" barrel with a Saker suppressor, what adjustable gas block will work?

Asked by: Jeff Peterson - 7/13/2022
A: Without having your carbine here in hand to measure, the best way to determine fitment is for you to use the Configurator found here:

https://www.riflespeed.com/Choose-your-Gas-Control_ep_41.html

Enter the measurements of your carbine & you'll get color-coded outputs showing what works. The most common issue is handguard length. You can adjust that number until a solution appears in green if necessary. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: I really like the idea of your gas system but I run a high temp Inconel carbine gas tube rated for 1800F and really don't want to give that up. Is there any way to make your gas control system work with a dogleg carbine length tube? This Inconel gas tube is already thicker and requires it to be installed to the gas block then slid back into the upper receiver hole to fit anyway.

Asked by: MD Froman - 6/20/2022
A: Straight gas tubes are required. Straight gas tubes are more durable than bent gas tubes and mitigate heat-related gas tube issues. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: Running a Daniel Defense MK18, with a BCM M-Lok hand guard. I tried using the tab to figure out which block I would need but it said nothing would fit. Wondering if I did it wrong? These look awesome and I’d love to run one for my duty rifle (police officer/SWAT).

Asked by: Joshua Sonney - 6/6/2022
A: The most common issue is handguard length.
If your handguard covers the entire barrel then you wouldn't have access to make adjustments by turning the Control Knob. With Mk18 configurations there are two options. #1 keep your 10.3"/10.5" barrel and switch to a shorter handguard. #2 keep your handguard and switch to an 11.5" barrel. With an 11.5" barrel you can run an RS7533 Gas Control. This is one of the best setups available and what we advise customers running short carbines. An 11.5" is noticeably more consistent and smoother. The extra inch of length is negligible with respect to the handling characteristics of the carbine. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

We don't have a Fortis Night Rail in the shop to check, but we do have dimensioned drawings under the "Fitment" tab on the Gas Control page here at riflespeed.com that can help you determine your fitment. From what I can see on their website, the Fortis will be a great fit.

Cant remember what the aero s-one handguard min height spec is at the moment. Really want to try out your companys gas block but need some size specs before purchasing.

Asked by: Clinton Andrus - 5/7/2022
A: Clinton, we have dimensioned drawings for the Gas Controls under the "Fitment" tab on the Gas Control page. I can tell you for sure that the Atlas S-One won't work, though. The lowered center section doesn't allow enough room for the gas tube or Gas Control. Check out the Cross MachineTool HDM, DRT, and UHPR rails we offer for good options or others like the Midwest Industries Combat Rail or G4. All of the Geissele rails we've tried have fit as well.

Q: Will the RS7543 behind a pin and welded 14.5 unscrew far enough to disassemble and replace plungers if desired?

Asked by: Brandon Williams - 5/2/2022
A: No, you'll need to determine the Plunger you want to use before you pin & weld if using an RS7543. With an RS7533 you would have room to swap Plungers. Since Plungers outlast barrels it is generally unnecessary to change Plungers, however. Email us at [email protected] and we can help you with initial setup once you have your parts in hand.

Q: I have a 10” barrel with pistol length gas system with 9” handguard. I stumped the configuration tool… any suggestions.

Asked by: Bob - 4/28/2022
A: The configurator is set to allow a minimum of 0.4" of exposed Control Knob. Your handguard is likely too long to allow this. Try entering different handguard lengths (select the checkbox to enter a custom measurement) and you can determine what length handguard you'd need to have adequate clearance.

Q: With the plunger rod that comes supplied with the RS7533 does the gas get shut off completely when it is adjusted all the way closed?

Asked by: Kerry - 4/23/2022
A: Each Gas Control currently comes with two Plunger sizes. On some configurations and chamberings the bolt will remain locked upon firing with one of these two Plunger sizes. Many 300BLK shooters use the #937 Plunger for this (included size) with subsonic ammunition. They can then dial back up to a higher number to cycle again. Some other configurations will use a longer Plunger like the #947, #957, or #967. There are many variables that affect which Plunger you'll need to select for this application including; port size, port position, ammunition used, suppressor used, bore, reciprocating mass, etc. Gas Controls are not designed to prevent unlocking with supersonic ammo, though that may be possible in some configurations as well.

Q: what plunger do I need to be able to turn the gas off and then switch it to all the way open for subsonic 300 blackout

Asked by: tyler - 4/5/2022
A: Tyler, you’ll need to go through the setup process with your gun, ammo, suppressor, etc. to be sure, but we’ve had many reports of the #937 working for this purpose. That’s one of the two Plungers included in your Gas Control package.

Q: Hello, I have a 9.5 Griffin Armament 300 blkout barrel but it came pre-dimpled for both set screws and was curious as to the spacing of the set screw of the 7543 model specifically, thank you.

Q: Hello I used your calculator and it gave me model RS7558. From the front of my gas block to front of my rail is 3”. Is the 5 5/8” the entire assembly or just extension. Not doubting your calculator but my measurements were all custom. 20” criterion hybrid profile barrel & 16.625” rails. Thanks for your help.

Asked by: John - 4/3/2022
A: The RS7558 is 5.8” long. The “Configurator” on the Choose Your Gas Control page is the best resource to determine fitment. If your entered accurate measurements you’ll get the correct answer. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: I have an 11.5" AR 15 carbine which has only 1 " from the hand guard to the end of the barrel. Will your gas control device work on my weapon? The diameter of the gas block is 0.750" and it is a low-profile gas block. If the gas control won fit what can I do to make it fit? thank You Malcolm Carpenter

Asked by: malcolm - 3/30/2022
A: The Gas Control will work, but may not be as easy to adjust as we’d like. The ideal configuration leaves 1/2” to 1” of the Control Knob exposed. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: I am looking into buying an “ar-10” style rifle in 308 win. I have been looking at Sig 716i, aero precision M5, and Savage MSR10. I use a 762SD can from AAC. Do you know if your gas block works with any/all of these without modifications? Any other 16in barrel upper or complete rifle under $2000 you suggest?

Asked by: Ryan - 3/25/2022
A: Gas Controls will work with any direct-gas AR with the appropriate journal diameter. We currently offer .750" diameter models, but .625" and .875" models are coming. You'll need to verify fit with your handguard as well (dimensions under "Fitment" tab on product page). That's much less of an issue with large-frame ARs, though. We have an M5 as a test rifle in the shop that works great. We'll also have complete 308 uppers added to the site as soon as the final components arrive. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed!

Asked by: Nick creek - 3/24/2022
A: We have not looked at that specific model, bt we have used other RRA models successfully. As long as the inside of the handguard is 1.225" or larger and the gas tube area is fully machined inside (almost all are) you should be good to go. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

A: They come with set screws, a cross-pin and a pre-drilled hole for the cross-pin. You'll need to have your barrel cut for the cross-pin if you choose to go that route. It's optional, but recommended for defensive/tactical use. See the "Barrel Ponning" page here on the website for more info on that. Thanks

Q: I have a 10.5 Ruger AR pistol. It has a carbine length gas system and a 9 inch handguard. The riflespeed fitment calculator said none of the gas block sizes would work. However, I'm semi-confident the shortest version of the riflespeed GB would fit with just enough sticking out from under the handguard to make adjustments??? Please advise, thank you.

Asked by: Blake Rutherford - 3/18/2022
A: The Configurator allows for a minimum of 0.400" of exposed Control Knob (the numbered part you turn). You'll have less exposure than that, but the Gas Control will still work as intended. Adjustments won't be quite as easy, though. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: Will this gas block fit inside of an aero precision atlas s-one? The atlas is a very slim and low profile handguard. This gas block looks bigger than my current setup. Will it fit?

Asked by: Gabriel - 3/13/2022
A: The Atlas-R handguards have a lowered center section that prevents use of our Gas Controls on some configurations, but works in others. The Atlas-S center section is extremely low and not compatible with Riflespeed Gas Controls in any configuration.

Asked by: Frenzied - 2/27/2022
A: With a 12.5" barrel you'll need a handguard that's 11" or less in order to have enough access to easily make adjustments. The 11.5" handguard will cover the Control Knob. The Gas Control will work fine, but adjustments would be more difficult.

A: Richard, we don’t have a RISII in the shop to use for verification, but we do have dimensioned drawings under the “Fitment” tab on the Gas Control page that you can use to compare to your handguard. The Gas Controls fit under most slim handguards down to 1.25” inside diameter. We’ve used smaller, but 1.25” is a good rule that gives you some clearance. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: If your gas block is installed on a barrel with a pin and welded muzzle device, is there enough room to change out the plunger without having to have the muzzle device removed?

Asked by: Mark - 2/1/2022
A: Mark, this is an excellent question. The answer will depend on your specific setup. Some configurations have more than enough room to swap Plungers without pulling the muzzle device. In some configurations where the fit is close you can add a small spacer behind the muzzle device to have enough room. In others, the muzzle device would need to come off. The good news is that once initial setup is complete, you can maintain your Gas Control without disassembly for many thousands of rounds or until it's time to replace your barrel. We cover the maintenance options in the Maintenance Instructions Document on the "Tech Documents" page at riflespeed.com. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed & let us know if you have additional questions.

Q: One of the reviews are saying it doesn’t fit with the aero atlas r one hand guards which I have. I really want this but could you verify some how if this is true. Thanks

Asked by: Gavin - 1/31/2022
A: Unfortunately, the Atlas R1 handguard has a restricted portion in the center of the rail where the clearance is limited. If your Gas Control falls under that part of the rail you'll have issues without rail modification. If your Gas Control is placed closer to the end of the handguard then it should fit fine. You'll need to evaluate your specific setup. The dimensioned drawings under the "Fitment" tab on the Gas Control product page will provide specific measurements for your reference.

Q: Love the concept of this gas block, I'm looking to run a "tucked" setup. Mega Arms MKM 12" hand-guard with a 10.5" barrel + Cherry bomb + Whistle-Tip or Saker up front. Would it possible to adjust the gas block settings through the slots in the hand guard. In other words can I use a bullet tip or something to adjust the gas while under the rail? Thanks in advance for the info!

Asked by: Mike - 1/29/2022
A: The detents are purposely designed to be difficult to turn. This prevents accidental adjustments. You may be able to use a cartridge in a tucked application, but it will be somewhat difficult by design. You may be better off having the vent holes in the handguard enlarged to allow finger access from the sides.

Q: I have looked at the charts and an not seeing the info I need. Is there a fit for midlenghth gas tube and 15" hanguard?

Asked by: Rick - 1/29/2022
A: Rick, with a 16” mid-gas barrel the longest handguard we recommend is a 14.5” in order to have good access to make adjustments. Midwest Industries offers the G4 and the Combat Rail in 14" and they have worked very well for us. If you need to keep your 15" handguard then the RS7558 is the best fit, but please understand you will only have a small amount of the Control Knob exposed to grasp.

Q: Hi, What is the maximum gas tube hole size on a barrel that this gas system can accommodate? What do you recommend for a 8" 300blk set up for subsonic?

Asked by: Neil - 1/9/2022
A: Gas ports up to 0.115" are supported. With an 8" 300BO you'll want to run somewhere in the neighborhood of 0.105"-0.112" depending on several factors. With a Gas Control installed there's little downside to a larger port, though. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed!

Q: Good morning. I am doing a complete Aero precision 300 blackout build. I am using a 10.5" barrel and an Atlas R-One 9.3" handguard. What are your recommendations for gas block? And will be a pistol length gas system as well. Thank you in advance.

Asked by: Miles - 12/30/2021
A: With a 10.5" pistol-gas barrel you can run an RS7543 with an 8" handguard. To evaluate other configurations, hit the "Choose Your Gas Control" link at the top of the site. There you can enter the measurements of various combinations of components and see what works. Gas Control model numbers that fit will be displayed in green. Models that do not fit a given configuration will be shown in red. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed!

Q: Any chance we can see custom lengths? I’m looking for a 3.9”-4” length. I have a Midwest industries 11.5 handguard with a 6.5 Grendel lilja barrel. It’s a 12.5 but Lilja measures the barrel extension as well so it’s more like a 12”. Really like your solution for adjusting gas with no tools, currently using superlative adjustable gas block, and I have to take my can off to adjust it, I had the gas too light the other night and I was hog hunting, it was a single shot :(

Asked by: Reid Averill - 12/29/2021
A: Custom lengths are not an option at the moment, unfortunately. It would be much less expensive to purchase a shorter handguard. The Cross Machine Tool HDM 10.5 and DRT 10.5 are excellent options that are reasonably priced and may work for you. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed & let us know if we can answer any other questions.

Q: Would this item work with a criterion 12.5" .750 gas block under midwest industries 11.5 handguard (MI-CRM11.5)? If so, which model do I need to purchase here? Thanks, Vlad

Asked by: Vlad - 12/24/2021
A: An 11.5” handguard on a 12.5” barrel won’t give you as much exposure for your Control Knob as we’d like. You can do it, but adjustments will be more difficult. A 10.5”-11” handguard is ideal with a 12.5” carbine-gas barrel.

Asked by: Thomas Woelfel - 12/24/2021

Asked by: Emmanuel Vargas - 12/23/2021
A: If your rifle is a direct-gas gun with a 0.750” diameter gas journal then you can use a Gas Control. Be sure to enter the details of your rifle into the Configurator on the “Choose your Gas Control” page (link at top of website). Thanks & merry Christmas.

Q: I have an Aero build with a 10.5" criterion barrel, a 9" Atlas handguard, and a Griffin Armament taper mount muzzle device. I did the fitment guide and it shows none of the gas controls will work with this setup. Is that correct? Doesn't look to be a lot of room between the handguard and the muzzle device. I also have an ADM build with a 12.5" barrel and 10.75" handguard. The fitment guide says a RS7915 will work. Is that correct? Thanks! Just want to make sure before I make a purchase.

Asked by: Kevin McAdams - 12/2/2021
A: Kevin, the 9” handguard will cover most of the Gas Control, but it is doable. You can see what an 8” handguard looks like on the homepage of the website. There’s a pic of a 10.5” carbine with a BCM MCMR8 handguard between the picture of the FDE upper and the OD Green rifle on a bipod. That will give you a way to develop an idea of what your 9” setup will look like.

Q: What is the minimum hand guard id that will accommodate the gas control? Will the atlas S-one or R-one from aero precision work?

Asked by: Caleb - 11/28/2021
A: The Atlas R-One and S-One have a lowered center section that prevents clearance. We've used handguards with an inside diameter as small as 1.225" (Midwest Night Fighter) with success. Most slim handguards are around 1.3" inside which fits easily. Check the "Fitment" tab on the Gas Control Product page for a dimensioned drawing that can be used to verify handguard fit.

Q: Dear Madame/Sir, I would like to inquire if your adjustable gas block can be installed on CMMG Resolute MK47/Banshee MK47 with 16" and 10-1/2" barrels and used with existing handguards?

Asked by: Nico - 11/10/2021
A: Nico, the best way to determine fitment is to enter the measurements of your configuration into the interactive Configurator tool on the "Choose Your Gas Control" page. You'll get color-coded results showing which Gas Controls fit your firearm. In the event that no models are shown to be compatible, the most common issue is with handguard length. You can enter different values into the "Handguard Length" dropdown to see what would work. If that's the case for you please email [email protected] with your measurements and we'll make some suggestions. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed!

Q: I have a BCM 11.5 barrel with a BCM 10 inch mcmr rail but it's 10.5 to the flare I'm sure you no what I am saying will your gas block work with this build? Thanks

Asked by: Bullet - 11/8/2021
A: The RS7533 Gas Control will work if your gas journal is 0.750” diameter. The length of the MCMR10 handguard won’t provide as much access to the Control Knob as we’d like you to have, but the Gas Control will definitely work. The MCMR9 provides more than enough access if you wish to change handguards in the future.

We’ve used slim handguards with inside diameters as small as 1.225” successfully.

Q: i recently purchased a PSA GEN3 PA10 18" MID-LENGTH .308 WIN 1/10 STAINLESS STEEL 15" LIGHTWEIGHT M-LOK STR SSA-E RIFLE. Does your gas control work with their setup and which one do you recommend. Thanks, Eddie

Asked by: EddieF - 10/22/2021
A: Eddie, thanks for your question. While the Gas Control would work with your carbine, the 15” handguard would cover up the Control Knob completely. This would make it more difficult than we’d like to make adjustments. With a mid-length gas system the RS7543 works with up to a 13” handguard and the model RS7558 works with up to a 14” handguard.

Asked by: Nic - 10/21/2021
A: Yes, the MCMR works great with Riflespeed Gas Controls. The 10.5" upper shown on the Riflespeed.com homepage and in the product images of the Gas Control product page is wearing an MCMR8. That's a great option for 10.3" - 10.5" builds. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.

Q: Are you folks going to make an option that fits folks with mid length gas, 16" barrel and 15" handguards in the future? I'd really like to get one of these on my DDM4V7. ??

Asked by: Benjamin Knoerle - 10/21/2021
A: Benjamin, this a great question and one that comes up often. The issue with your configuration isn't the Gas Control, it's the length of our handguard. The 15" handguard covers so much of a 16" barrel that it is difficult to access the Control Knob. It CAN be done, but making adjustments will be more difficult than we'd like. A 14" handguard offers plenty of access to easily make adjustments. If you don't mind having the Control Knob nearly tucked under the 15" handguard then the model RS7558 is the solution. Thanks for your question.

A: You’ll see no point-of-impact shift between the Gas Control settings used for each configuration, but may see some shift in point-of-impact when adding or removing a suppressor, as is usually expected. You’ll need to confirm or re-zero your carbine after installing your Gas Control to insure that your point-of-aim and point-of-impact are aligned. Thanks for your interest in Riflespeed.
