Without knowing the manufacturer and such, one would assume it would be one of the standards, unless it's some off the wall frankensteinien gas tube.

If u haven't already noticed , parts are getting harder and harder to get . Prices keep creeping higher on parts and ammo and it will continue until election time is over . Parts I bought in December for $529 cost $619 today from the same company for the same parts
