??? I have those things you mentioned Robo. You're saying I wasted money? Son of a...

Seriously, I have said that for a long time to. The VAST majority of malfunctions in an AR are directly related to gas delivery. The problem being an obstructed tube, wrong size gas port, loose carrier key, low pressure ammo, whatever the case may be, the end result is always the same.

Adding a stiffer o-ring, d-ring, one piece gas rings, changing spring rates etc. only gets you around the real problem which, I say again, is gas delivery to the carrier key at the proper pressure to cycle the weapon.

Yup Jeep, you wasted your money. Unless they make you feel better. As long as they do not interfere with the function, WTH.

The gas pressure/volume is dependant upon the ammo, the gas port and gas tube/key. Cheap ammo that puts gas into the key in the right range of pressure/volume will work OK. The best ammo will not work worth a damn if the gas system is out of whack.
