Default Clamp on low-pro gas block?

It's for a 16" middy under a Centurion C4 10" rail.

Looking at these 3 clamp on versions...any comments on them or other suggestions I should consider?

Daniel Defense-9091
VLTOR- GB-2C
Syrac Ordnance- Click-Adjustable

Thanks

Not familiar with them and the words clamp on kinda scare me but I'd damn sure go with the adjustable.

Well technically my YHM folding front sight gas block is a clamp on. The rings are separate.

I know enough to build or swap parts out of an AR. Don't own one yet and probably never will due to Obama. I'd love some more info on these. The words clamp on and gas block feel like they shouldn't be in the same sentence.

LOL I'm building one now just for this ^^^ very reason!

There are two types, clamp on and set screws on the bottom. I've read that the clamp on version is better because the clamp force is extremely large and spread over a larger surface between the block and barrel where as the set screw type tend to come loose.

Clamp on-


Set Screws-

What do you think the pluses to the set screw version are?

Direct connect to the barrel. But as stated its weakness would be the single screw. Perhaps I should design a double screw one and cash in. Lol

If that's the case that would definitely be my choice between the two.
