Build is still coming along.
I can't give much of a review as the project isn't complete. I will give my first impressions, though. First off, packaging. Came in a bag in a pretty nice box. Personally, I would have preferred something a little more discreet, but it's not a sticking point.
Next is parts. So, I went with this specific gas block, because they did a YouTube video on their quality control, and inspection process. They said what they did, and said why they did it. All of what they said was pretty basic, and made sense to me. No "trust me" or "black magic" going on. Plus they have a warranty. I like warranties. The gas block came with a single roll pin, and two knurled set screws. Not sure what the practical effectiveness of the knurled set screws is or will be, but points for innovation. Best case scenario, it provides additional "bulletproofing" to the build. Worst case it ends up being just as effective as any other set screw. Win win.
Last, let's talk assembly. It's not on a barrel, yet, but I did get a gas tube into it. Let me tell you, that was a really tight fit for the provided roll pin. I mean TIGHT. Steel punches and a bigger hammer tight. Brass punches were just getting marred up. That's an impressive kind of fit.
In summary, I'm excited to finish this build. I'm planning on getting an NP3 bolt, and a combat grade barrel from them. Before ordering the barrel, I have to ask daddy if it's ok to make a short barreled rifle, and bribe him for his permission. Because liberty...
