    Where to Get Colt Mid Length Gas Tube?

    I have a Colt 6920 that I am going to put a FN CHF mid length gas system barrel on. I need a mid length gas tube and would like to get a Colt one (I assume the same one for the CCU 6960 gas tube will work), but I can't find a Colt Midlength/6960 gas tube anywhere. Does anyone know if Colt sells them?

    Don't get too hung up on getting a particular brand gas tube.

    The key is to get a quality tube from a reputable source.

    Our tubes are the SAME quality as .GOV contract M4s.

    Like Clint said, do not get hung up on a brand name. Here is a good quality SS gas tube.

    Colt doesn't make a midlength gas tube. They purchase it from a known source like many other companies. Any reputable midlength gas tube will be sufficient.
