Ummmm....Tristan- maybe I missed something.... but what is the firearm in question? An open gas port is a hazard when firing a weapon- really high pressure jet of very hot gas. And if you have removed operating parts on a semi, it is no longer a semi.

Pretty simple need to replace with a different type of gas block i guess.

yes if you have the triangular front sight like many AR's do you will need to replace it with a gasblock that has the m1913 rail on it. that way you can attache your flip up sight to it.
