Either way if you’re running an 18.5” barrel and rifle length gas system like me you don’t really need the adjustable gas block, mines just about full open anyway and you save a tiny bit of wheight and one less point of failure
    Thank you. I was reading the opposite on another forum and someone was saying to run a jp silent capture but they are pricey and I’d rather save the money for some high end optics. This is good to know. Just the standard spring weight is reliable?

    You should be fine with regular buffer and spring. I've run that with 18.6" barrel, rifle length gas, Brownells low mass BCG and Odin adjustable gas block with no issue.
    I am using a Taccom lightweight buffer set now with less gas.

    I’m running an 18.6” barrel with mid length gas. I’m thinking a bcm buffer but is an adjustable gas block worth it?

    I have the same barrel and standard gas block. It functions well and ejects to the 3:00 position.

    Look on the bright side.... You get to build your upper first while most of us got to build our lower first

    Pretty sure ATRS said they were doing all the uppers ss and fa for the second batch with the first then they’ll do the second batch of lowers.

    Just a simple question. I've assembled many AR's but have never come across the little threaded cap and ball bearing stapled to the FRT that came with my reciever set...any idea what its for? (I've gone through a few pages of this forum but haven't found an answer) Thanks in advance for any help!
