PSA,

I bought the .300 barrel a few weeks back and today decided to stop on the way home to pick up a gas block and tube to get it fitted to my upper. $75.00 later I get home open the package of my non refundable gas block to find that the diameter of the is not as the site states @ .750", what gives?

The barrels are .750 diameter at the gas block. It sounds like someone sold you an incorrectly sized gas block. Do you have any pictures with a caliper on your barrel?

Thinking the same thing, I pulled a gas block off of my pistol build that is a PSA 10 inch barrel and that gas block fit the same way on the .300 as the new one, and the new gas block fit on the pistol, but not the .300.


I'll Grab some pictures or a video this evening.

Barrel returned and signed for by Bane, received a call and the person asking for the wrong name. It was only after a number look up did I realize it was PSA. Regardless I have left three messages and sent two email with no replies.

Barrel being replaced? Money being refunded? In the dark.

For the record, PSA made it right and sent me a brand new barrel which the gas block fit perfectly on. By far one of the only companies I stand behind.
