Default gas block

Ok I know I could search but a new thread is easier and maybe new ideas can come. I was told my WOA barrel would be four months now it will be here next week. So what gas block should be used. I need a low profile. Should I be using an adjustable? Barrel is mid length 223 wylde.

Thanks

If it's a pencil barrel, I'll send you a brand new one for free.

Just for future reference if anyone has spare AR parts, I can give them a happy home.

What are you going to be doing with the rifle? What kind of BCG and buffer system will you be using? That would determine if you want an adjustable gas block or not.

Generally speaking most people don't get adjustable gas systems. Where you see adjustable gas systems is in super tuned 3 guns, and in pistol systems.

If you are using most "standard" buffer systems, not the low mass buffer system like JP makes, and you are using either a standard ar15 or mil spec m16 BCG, you'd be fine with a typical lo pro gas block.

Let me know if you want any recommendations.
