Why not just put a knurled knob on the front and spare you the time spent looking for the !@#$%^&* wrench you misplaced?

Apparently they thought about that...it uses fingers, straight blade screwdriver, phillips screwdriver, hex wrench, or a provided box wrench for adjustment...

it does appear like it can be adjusted with a flat blade screwdriver, and possibly even a phillips.


i'm with you on the knurled hand adjustment Hoot, however i think the challenge with ar's is you then limit a persons hand-guard options - which also means it limits your market some too.

i prefer to keep my gas blocks inside the handguard where possible, just so i know they dont get knocked around. but thats a personal preference and know its not necessary as long as the gas tube is shielded.


sig found a nice compromise with that handguard they put on the 716 DMR, but that looks proprietary so probably not much use to the rest of us.

I was in a joking mood at work earlier. Of course it appears that several tools will adjust it and yes, its better to have them out of harms way, including harm to you. They can get very hot. ;)
