Its possible, but unlikely. Once you tighten the clamp down that holds the rear of the gas tube on, is it still short?

NO. If you're gas block needed to be moved, you'd know it way before you removed the priginal tube. The gun wouldn't shoot if the block was off.

Now. . . Does the 2nd tube reach? They do barely fit even when it is the right part. Do you have another AK to compare it to?

Yeah I compared it to my buddies and mine is short. I closed the latch to lock the gas tube down and it moves the tube back and leaves it short up front its holding by the skin of its teeth.
