Relocating Gas Port
"Relocate Gas Port For moving Gas Port Location $35.00
If you want move your gas port from the rifle to MID, or MID to CAR. If the new location needs contoured, the contour fee/job must be selected."
This is a service ADCO offers. I am looking to see if there is anyone who has moved the gas port from carbine length to mid.
I am looking to get my first AR and am probably going to get a LE6920. My only issue has been the carbine length gas system on the 16" barrel.
Is this an option to consider? Also, the wording could imply you can only shorten a gas system.
Any help would be appreciated.
I wouldn't do it.
If you want Colt quality, but in a middy then look at BCM, DD or Noveske.
What is the issue with a 6920 that you would consider relocating the gas port? By the way, the cost is really north of $400 as the Colt barrel will be a total loss.

I've found several debate regarding carbine and mid length gas system. The mid length seems to be the overwhelming choice but the 6920 is often recommended despite the carbine length gas system.
After seeing this service I was curious why moving the gas port hadn't been mentioned much. It would seem to be an inexpensive way to have the best of both worlds if it was viable.
Get the Colt 6920 and dont look back, the carbine length is just fine.
Save up for a second rifle, or upper in midlength.
I'd get in touch with Red Jacket Firearms. I'd bet they can install two Gas Blocks with proper valving so you can switch back and forth between carbine and mid-length actions.
Just curious, since you've been researching for a month, what is the consensus you've discovered.
The only surprise here is that it didn't happen sooner.
