I know about the port angle thing. I drilled the gas block port access hole in the gasblock itself, not the actual ports in the barrel. It was blocking 2.5 of the 4 ports. The barrel itself is untouched. Im taking it one fix ata time. Since its now running perfectly im leaving it as-is and only plan on doing a good bolt and carrier polish
