    Gas port Sizes

    Who has the low down on gas ports for different length barrels? My main interest is 10.3 and 11.5 barrels but if you have a chart or list of other lengths that would be great. I have an old barrel I'm having cut down so it needs to be opened up so it will run.

    TIA for the help.
    Sad, that it takes someone else to tell you your life is worth protecting and that you are the one ultimately responsible for it.

    14.5" and 16" barrels run .062" IIRC 10.3" and 11.5" are .085" and 12.5" is .074"

    Heres a good list. Scroll down about halfway.

    I wouldn't use that list. I screwed up two barrels following his recommended port sizes. He's got the ports for a 14.5 inch barrel way too large. .61 - .62 is the perfect size for a 14.5 inch barrel, especially if you're running fullauto. On an 11.5 inch barrel go with .69 IIRC, no larger.

    Where exactly is the gas port located. I am thinking inside of the carrier key.
    Could not find any diagrams with this info.
