All I gotta say is if you intend on taking the gas block off you had best buy damn good punches , I have some good ones but not as small as needed , I bought smaller ones at lowes and those are the biggest POS punches I have ever had in my hands , I bent the 1/8" punch back with my bare hands and mushroomed the 1/4" punch first hit , no way in hell are they hardened . I did get the gas block off but wow that biotch is on there good . Got my Magpul Gen 2 front BUIS , Now just waiting on my handguard to show up so I can get this thing back together and ready to rock and roll .

IMO, if your just gonna cut the FSB down to fit under the hand guard, take the gas tube out, but just leave it on. When you take it off and re-install it, you run the risk of not aligning the gas block with the gas port. It's harder to do when using a pinned gas block, but can happen. Plus it's a huge pain in the ass getting it off, as you found out.

I cut my FSB down, but just left it on the barrel.

I was going to do this but decided against it , I really just dont want to take any chances on scratching the barrel . Its really wasnt that bad once I got a good punch that stayed straight on it . I think the key is use a punch thats to big to get it started . I have a 2X2 block with the center routered out to fit the barrel works great , I would like to know how many pouunds of force they use when pressing those in . I watched a few videos of people punching them out and they popped right out . Not these but either way its done . Now anyone recommend a good bluing to use on the cut down block ?
