My buddy bought one just like that at a gun show , he also bought some POS china made forearm, it looked nice but when I went to put my wrench in the aluminum barrel nut the holes were off and I could only get in 2 holes , needless to say I ripped out 2 holes because they were paper thin and drilled to close to the edge " hense why the holes were off" . This all happened at about 36 ft lbs of torque and I needed about half a hole to get me there , I did finally get it but man it sure is tough when it comes like that

I just fixed her up, brand new again! Ya I feel you, I should of known better than to get non confirmed parts. I've done so many repairs for other people's AR's that penny pinch and buy crap.

If you hadn't found the problem, I was going to say moisture in the gas tube. Glad you fixed it.

It turns out it was just a cheap aluminum block, will not make that mistake again.
