    Im going to remove my Front Triangle sight from my Colt M4 Carbine.
    Ive heard things about needing a Gas block or something that goes on your barrel to keep the handguard ring thing in place. I dont know the exact name..
    I wanna know more about the gas block, and where I can buy a cheap but durable one. Thanks. :D

    You can always just saw off the triangle site. Won't have any effect in the gas block.

    Lol I think I would rather do it the safe way, and not make it look all ugly and cut up :p

    Here's a gas block, it has a flip-up sight too (two birds one stone plus it's the least expensive one I found).

    Edit: If you found this helpful could you be so kind as to vote for me in player of the month.
