    Kinda pricey, but JP makes adjustable gas blocks. If you're rifle is a SHTF gun, or you are keeping it for the zombie apocolypse, it would be handy for if you have to change ammo. Course, I think you have a pinned sight base/gas block. Don't know your skill level, or that of whoever you have working on your gun, but pinned sights can be a buggar to take off.

    First why do you think you need a railed gas block and what are your intentions with it . Personally I would leave what you have on it , its durable , reliable and gas leaks wont be a problem with your current setup . I removed a FSP and went to a low pro Troy and honestly I wish I would have just left good enough alone.
    If you just need rail space use what you currently have

    The reason I'm interested in a railed gas block is because I want to put a folding front sight on, gives me an option for my red dot sight

    In that case I'd skip the railed gas block idea and go for a free float full length fore grip and a low profile gas block.

    Forget the rail gas block. I have one and I wished I had your setup. Your frontsight should line up with your red dot. If it doesn't get a riser for it. The railgas blocks aren't pinned to the barrel so they do come loose.
