Need M6 low profile piston gas block.

Postby chillpills » Tue Mar 16, 2010 6:00 am

I bought an M6 and didnt realize that i might want to use a scope. Mounting a scope on my rifle with the A-frame is iffy. Im worried about the A-frame getting in the way of my future 3-9x40mm leupold scope. Im looking for a Low profile gas block for the stock M6 but fail to find it on the LWRC's website. This is frustraiting. Where can i get one and how much do they run for? plz help.

You won't see the FSB through the scope. Over 3x not an issue. If you're set on a low pro block you send it in pay the $ and have it changed.

I run a TA11 ACOG 3.5X on an A1 and don't even see the front sight through the optic. If it bugs you places like ADCO can chop the front sight. LWRC has a custom shop, call the factory and see what they can do for you.

I run a Leupy 3-9x36mm Mark IV on my Bushy carbine with a FSB and it certainly is not an issue. As said before, you'll never even see it. The only problem you may have is if you want to put a 4" sun shade on the front end, but the field of view won't be effected.

Short answer: It won't bug you.
Long answer: You may have picked up the wrong rifle for your purposes - if that bugs you. Call up LWRCI and see what they'll do to modify it for you. Though if you haven't shot it yet, might want to sell it, and pick a new model.

I have an M6A2 16" 5.56mm barrel I was going to have shortened. It is CHF with the older style low profile gas block. I bought it here. I would consider trading barrels and a GG&G A2 flip up rear sight for the rear fixed that came with the M6, what barrel length and type is it?

Larue sells a rail section that raises your rings 5/8". I use it with my Luepold 3-9x40 on my 16" A1 and the FSB is lost in the FOV. The rail is $125 vs whatever LWRC will charge you to swap out the gas block.
