    Is it really worth the extra scratch to get an adjustable gas block? It'll be fired supressed from time to time.

    Wasn't required on mine. I just stuck a H3 buffer in there. The ROF does go up and it gasses you in the face real good though.

    If that bothers you might be worth it.

    Is an Aimpoint worth it over a Holoson? Shilen barrel over a Bear Creek? Atlas bipods, etc... maybe, maybe not--- it all depends on the shooter. It also is going to be determined by BCG weight, gas port size, sensitivity to blowback, etc.

    They're a very nice thing to have, however they usually aren't necessary.

    If you're going to shoot subsonic loads (with big bullets) and also high power loads, I'd advise getting an adjustable.

    Better make sure a 10.5 in barrel won't roach your can!

    Some suppressor companies will not warranty their product on this short of a barrel.

    Deadair doesn't have length limits, cans also good for 300winmag. Should be alright it won't get used a ton.

    I guess I'm going to have to order a block, unless you want magpul parts all the stores around here suck for parts selection.
