I'm looking for the thread that addresses simply converting my ar15 to bolt action status by removing the gas gystem. Ive spent hours on oaklanders google search and the cgn search. Thanks in advance!

- Take a ~1/2" (approx). front stub of a cut-down gas tube.
- Install it (re-pin it) upside down in the front sight/gas block assy.

Gas is now blocked and action will not cycle except by hand.

Do not try to run rifle without the gas port being blocked per above - hot gas may come out near where your hands are.

Pardon my ignorance, but if you do this, does that mean you can use pre-ban hi-cap mags AND all the evil features?

Thankyou bwiese. Not my intent to dupe a previous discusion. I've built a 24" SS bull barrel upper with a target scope and "evil" features. Not sure which I prefer yet. Dropping legally possessed preban hicap mags but requiring me to cycle the rifle every shot or use of the BB and fixed 10 rounders.

Yes. Exactly.

And it's 100% reversible. All you have to do is buy a $15 sacrificial part to do it.
