The Forward Controls Design Gas Tube Pin Tool solves the problem inherent with installing a new gas tube pin on a low profile gas block. That problem is because gas blocks don't have any flat surfaces on them, you have to simultaneously hold the block stead, hold the pin stead, and tap the pin into place. The GPT simplifies this process by fitting over the gas block and retaining the pin, so that all you have to do is tap it in. The GPT works with most gas blocks, including: Modern Armory, Forward Controls Gas Block, BCM, Rainier, VLTOR, Knight's Armament, Badger Ordnance, Daniel Defense, SLR, and other blocks built to the original Crane Mk12 specification.

  • MAX gas block length: 1.00
  • MAX gas block height: 1.35

Forward Controls Gas Tube Pin Tool is also finished in an earth-green tone. This was done purposefully to provide contrast when working on a gas block, since most gas blocks are flat black. It also uses a small but powerful magnet to allow the gas tube pin to stand upright.
Forward Controls Design has a simple mission: make user-centric and purpose driven AR components with ergonomics as the primary feature. This is reflected in their practice of letting the shape of a design be driven entirely by function, which also creates an aesthetic part. FCD is located in Pacific Palisades, CA and proudly produces their products in the U.S.A.

It does the job

by -

Works as intended but won't seat right if you have an adjustable gas block. I had the slr adjustable gas block and did the want to remove the adjustment screw but found a way to seat it to make it work.

Worth it

by -

Fit low profile gas blocks, had to trim the block to fit adjustable ones. Once trimmed it was easy pest to get that perky gas tube pin in and out.

Must have for building uppers

by -

Worst time of any build is trying to put something together and you can’t get it right,this gas tube tool will reduce time on gas blocks and make it easier to pin your tubes or replace them.

Great product

by -

As always another quality product from FCD and excellent shipping times from Primary Arms. Very nicely made, finish is great BUT BEWARE THIS PRODUCT WILL NOT WORK WITH A BALLISTIC ADVANTAGE LOW PRO GAS BLOCK. The gas block is a tad too long. I learned this the hard way unfortunately.

Good.... but not great


This does not work with the Aero Precision low pro gas block
