Since my introduction to the M-16 in 1986 in the Military and all my years in between, I have never found a gas tube to be blocked causing a malfunction.
Now, some guys may build an AR and not get one to seal up right causing gas leakage and failure to cycle,...but thats totally different....LOL
Wait a damn minute here.
You should take the gas tube off. Then warm it up by running it through your hand up and down rapidly and blow through it. Cleans it out everytime.

Sting a little does it?
Yeah like others said, leave it alone. If you bend it, you can mess it up and those tubes are pretty pliable.
Focus on cleaning the bcg, bolt face, lugs, bore. An Ar15 chamber brush is useful. Lube the rails on the bcg and bolt. Gas rings on the bolt should be offset when you put it back together.
Y'all stop shooting all that ancient foreign surplus ammo you wouldn't have go through all that all the time either
I was taught that after you take it off, spray brake cleaner to soften the gunk, the run a pipe cleaner until it comes out clean. Now I just keep a supply of them as they're cheaper than the brake cleaner and pipe cleaners...
Sounds like something else getting done there.
I have that ancient surplus stuff only for my Nagants and even for them, I've bought brass cased, boxer primed, lately.
