    Longer gas tube for noveske switch block?

    Hi,

    I have a 14.5" Noveske SB-barrel with (mid length gas system) but I going to switch to a longer handguard on that rifle and want to move the switch block to my 18" (rifle gas) DMR/SPR.

    Where can i get a longer gastube?

    Call Noveske. Their gas tubes are proprietary for the SB.

    What makes you think the suppressed port size will be correct for an 18" barrel?

    I suspect that the supressed portsize is smaller on the 14.5" version.

    The plan is to drill it the right size.

    I'd consult with Noveske before going this route.

    Because it's over-gassed on a 14.5 middy. Mine would nearly cycle M193 in the suppressed setting with no can.

    I had this issue with Noveske as well, no joy to report however. Maybe things have improved there, one can only hope.
