Looks like a really intriguing solution. Will you guys ever add a 0 setting for complete shutoff? How much of the gas orifice does your 1 setting cover? Is it low enough to make the gun not cycle with anything but the gassiest cans? Thanks.

George, thanks for your interest. Riflespeed Gas Controls are fully modular. You can select a Plunger size that lets you cut off gas hard enough to prohibit cycling altogether or you can run a Plunger size that insures that the gas can’t be cut off enough to stop cycling. We have an article that touches on this in the RIFLEBLOG section of the website if you’d like to learn more. If any questions are left unanswered by that info then definitely keep them coming here.

You guys thought of everything. This is gonna be neat.

You see so many new and unnecessary products come out by people that "don't get it". Halelujah, in my view this ain't one!

I dig how you have answered the questions before they were asked. "How do I measure that journal? OK, I have a caliper, how do I read a caliper?" No! Just measure the wrapped paper, anyone can do that and it tells you .625 or .750. Very clever and comforting. Somebody gets that set screws "might" come loose and the block is made to drill for a crosspin, like a Geiselle-- good show.

The very plunger that obstructs the gas path for adjustment is also the adjustment collar detent-- utilizing one wave spring and no little coil springs to jump out and get lost / carbon-gunked up.

This is the very first I've seen and heard of it and you can color me impressed.

Thanks for that, Ned. Riflespeed started with the goal of making a no-BS duty-grade solution that would allow shooters to adjust, maintain, service, and use a practical gas system for the AR. It’s long overdue. Simplicity and ruggedness were key factors. The modular design makes it far more powerful than its simple design would suggest at first glance. Can’t wait to get more of these out there to see where shooters take it.

Well I will come for one as soon as I can decide where I need it. I think the gas block is by far the best place to moderate gas and I sure have a pref for the gas block being covered by the hand guard, and not a fan of having to keep a special tool handy and have to try and poke it through the HG to make adjustments. The only tool I might need with this would be a glove or something. It almost looks like a loaded round could be stuck into one of the holes bullet-first to give a way to turn it when hot...?

I will buy it through regular channels and pay the regular price, just so everyone knows.

Sounds good. One note, though... if it’s too hot to touch there’s probably no reason to make an adjustment. If an adjustment is needed you’ll know it right away.

Definitely let us know about your results and your setup.

How ironic that I see this here. I recently placed an order for the RS7519 model that I plan on using with my 10.3 barrel to try and alleviate the dreaded "Gas Face". Wasn't aware this existed until I saw it on Hanson Brothers site and did my own homework. Damn fine looking product that seems to be more squared away than other AGB's. No more having to remember my allen key before a range trip.

Thanks for your order, V. Looking forward to some pics and your thoughts once you get it all set up. The next big run of RS7519 is finished and will be starting the final inspection, assembly and packaging process Monday.

Finally got around to getting my 11.5 out today to check out the new AGB. Couldn't find my extra Griffin Armament mount so I put an old SF muzzle brake adapter on instead. Ran 55 Gr with the SF SOCOM can (762). On setting 5 it worked with no problems. On 4 it almost made it but no dice. Ran a LANTAC EBCG and Radian SD. Very minimal gas and shot very smooth.

Installed one on my lefty Stag 10. Suppressed with crap DAG ammo I'm running on 4. I like it.

I know the situation with ammo being what it is, this may be a while coming, but I'd like to see one of these run hard. Maybe even to failure. Would be good to see, in a practical way, what it's limitations are, and how well it overcomes the shortcomings of typical AGBs.

Did you try setting 6?

I did not. Might try it again when I go back to the range next time.

We tried to kill several of these before launching sales in October of '21. After 20,000+ rounds through one of those final test units it still hasn't failed. Adam at the NFA Review channel on YouTube is still shooting that Gas Control and the upper it was mounted on (rebarreled after bullets started flying sideways) on his full auto lower last I heard. We spent years destroying parts then improving the design, materials, and manufacturing until we were confident we could offer the market a no-BS duty grade solution. In the end, everything can be killed, we just haven't been able to do it yet.

That's awesome! I really need to find a rifle to put on of these on.

Roger. I’ll be curious to hear how fine that adjustment is. I can’t find the thread where you were talking about a BRT tube for your Recce 5. That can has plenty of backpressure. When you do the automatic selector thingy on the website, I’d pick high backressure/223 can, and the lightest buffer and spring you are likely to run so you have a little room to go up if desired.

There’s a cool video on our Instagram from a couple days ago where Red Right Hand (SOT from Idaho, I believe) is running an RS7519 on an LMG upper. He adjusts the Gas Control between bursts and you can see the effect on the rate of fire.

I don’t have any social media other than Linkdn. If you PM me a link, sometimes they’ll let me see videos without a login.

How badly do you need one/some broken?

No dice. Oh well. I’d like to see it on a shot timer (ROF calculator) with an auto lower to see if the adjustment steps are much finer than other options. Looks like it might be. Mainly out of curiosity, although it does seem like a really cool product, and its about time someone finally said “why the $&@% do we keep using a tiny setscrew?”.

Once we were confident that the barrel and/or other main components would need to be replaced before the Gas Control was rebuilt we were satisfied with the durability of the system. In the absence of destruction, establishing that the Gas Controls were NOT the weak link was the green-light criteria. Gas Controls do not add difficulty or complexity to the maintenance process and do not reduce the service life of the system (quite the contrary). That's what we were looking for.
