Expo Arms Low Profile Gas Block - .750"
Ratings & Reviews
Great Customer service with a problem gas block.
by Mark -
I purchased this gas block and it was a little snug going on to my barrel. I tapped it a little with a piece of 3/4" PVC and plastic mallet but it would not advance onto the barrel any more that it had and it was now stuck. I cut it off and left a 1 star review. PA Customer Service contacted me and we talked about the problem. My barrel is .75". To make a bad experience great, PA offered to reimburse me even though I had not intended to ask. Great customer service. Bottom line, if the gas block does not slide on fairly easy with the set screws removed, stop and check things out before resorting to force.
Quality plus price

Perfect fit! Very easy install. Very good quality for the price. Combine that with the lightning fast shipping!
Quality with a reasonable price!

Item is perfect for my change over to a low profile on my PSA A2 front sight/gas block. And the price is great. Ordered and in 2 days the parts were at my front door!
Good Budget Block

Installed without issue. My gas tube does rattle in it, not sure if that is the tube being under sized or the block being over sized. Either way, no cycling issues.
Perhaps a dud

Fit was too tight but after polishing it with fine grit sandpaper and steel wool, it fit. That’s a simple fix however, the main issue was the screws. They would strike sparks as you tighten them, they shed some metal shavings from the threads, and eventually broke an Allen key while trying to get the screws to engage with the barrel and it still would not hold onto my ballistics advantage govt profile barrel. No matter how hard I try to get them to tighten they would not stay in place.
<br>I ended up going to a local shop to pick up a different gas block.
Excellent customer service after part issue
I had an issue with the set screws not tightening all the way. The fit on the barrel was fine, but the set screws would not go past a certain point. I used the chat function on the website and they sent me a new one that day. I was also contacted by customer service to verify i was happy with the service i received. This is probably the best customer service i have had. Very happy!
Expo Arms Value priced, Excellent Quality
by Ivan -
Comes nicely packaged. Excellent fit and finish, no machine marks and fit on barrel perfectly. Way better than the price would suggest.
wish all companies would use PARMS C/service’s policies and altitude in solving problems. I will purchase items FIRST from PARMS
Nice Gas Block
by Jason -
Just got done installing on a stainless M4 profile barrel. The gas block slid on perfect and looks good. The set screw spacing is .45 for those that dimple their barrels. I also like the way Expo packages their items. Happy with price and quality of product.
You get what you pay for

Get what you pay for. I tried three different gas tubes and none would slide into the gas tube channel on this gas block more than 1/4". I ended up filing and sanding the inside of the gas tube channel in order to get the tube to fit. Seems fine otherwise but i don't expect to have to modify a new part when i get it.
Do not buy!

I thought I would save a few bucks and get a cheaper gas block for my latest build. Bad idea, I had to drill out the gas tube hole by 100/1000 just to get it to fit the tube. Would not recommend unless you have a drill press a good set of drill bits and some calipers.
<br>From PA: We'd be happy to exchange it out for you or take a refund on this gas block for you.
Good for a Budget Build
by Alexander -
Overall, pretty good function and build for the price. Installing was easy and did not encounter any hiccups. Finish and build quality of gas block is good for the price. Took it to the range with 500 rounds and seems to be over gassing sending my shells at the 2-3 o'clock direction. Shooting on a 16 inch midlegnth gas system with a standard 3 oz buffer.
Not that great
by Gordon -
Gas block finish and barrel fit were good. I didn't have the same problems with the gas tube that others seem to have. My problem was with the gas tube roll pin. The hole for the roll pin seems to be a hair too large. Roll pin can be pushed in by hand. I don't trust it enough to use it. I would look at a better gas block unless money is a factor and you're willing to gamble.
It's block and that is all you need

Works as described, It's hard to fault it for those reasons.
