Will a low profile gas block fit under the DD Omega rail?

DD -> YES.
Vltor -> YES. Vltor clamp version -> NO
DD will peek out a little bit. https://www.danieldefense.com/?page=shop/detail&product_id=107
Vltor would be completely hidden under the rail. http://www.vltor.com/lpgb.htm

Its going to be REALLY close, regardless of which one you chose....the Omega is Skinny.

I'd be afraid of hitting the rail against something and having it knock against the gas block.

What free float mid length rail would you guys suggest? Looking to get rid of my A2 FSP

Omega 9 - you're on the right track.

Drive on down to TPF and I will install a DD AR15 or M4 9.0 or I also have M4 10.0s too.

get a DD Lite rail.

+1 on the Lite rail or M4 rail. Although it will fit, the Omega wasn't really designed to go over a low-pro gas block. If you look at DD's web site you'll see that they say the 7.0 is designed for carbine gas systems, the 9.0 is for midlength, etc.

the 10.0 lite rail rocks! rock solid and lite.

I am thinking of going with the lite rail 10.0. I just need a gunsmith close to help with teh switch.
