Melonited gad tube vs Nitromet Gas Tube
 
Hello, I currently own a Spikes Tactical ST15 Carbine and wanted to covert it into a midlength. I was going to replace the current gas tube with the Spikes Tactical MELONITED Midlength gas tube however it is out of stock. I found the WMD Nitromet gas tube and really just want to know the differences, pros/cons and what you would recommend. Also, I plan on moving the FSB forward and putting on a new mor handguard. Thank you.

Moe handguard*

You're going to fill in the carbine gas port and drill another 2" toward the muzzle? If so this could turn ugly fast.

Or are you buying a midlength barrel?

As far as the gas tube itself, regular stainless does just fine.

I know, after more research I relized that and never though about it, don't know why lol. Going to buy a GEN 2Extend Carbine Free Float drop in Handguard from Midwest industries.

I have a Spikes AR so I have a MELONITE gas tube and the two I mentioned are the same apparently, it's been an off day. I like the dark gas tube to be honest. Now I need to get a BCM gunfighter charging Handel, Magpul BAD lever, and Magpul AFG

This is a much better choice if your just looking for a easy way to put on a longer hand guard . I went the route of cutting down the factory FSB and making it a low profile gas block and went with a free float 15" hand guard on a 16" barrel .
One more thing , just be careful what you install on the hand guard that requires accuracy , if its just a flash light its fine but they do tend to shift if hit or bounced off of something .

I would not try to close the carbine length gas port hole and drill a new hole for mid length , I think your honestly looking for a disaster to happen.
