    Remember in the 80’s and 90’s when you were watching your favourite tv series and at the end of the episode the producers would leave you hanging on a suspenseful point and then you had to wait until next week to see how it turned out?
    All week long you were anticipating the start of the next episode and it was all you could do to not go nuts waiting.

    Welcome back suspenseful waiting!!

    That's how I feel when I am waiting for a part of the build. Always hoping that the next piece will be just right for my project and not some crap junk that was a waste of money. (It has happened)

    Now, a gas cylinder. Plenty to choose from here. Old, not so old, new, used, stripped, complete, all are here.

    I think this one will suffice.

    I picked out that one because it gives me a reason to show the front sight installation. I do have the front stacking swivels but it is a PITA for me to stake the screw. I suppose some kind of thread locker would work but there is none to be found here.

    OK, now that the part has been picked out it is time to check that it is indeed good to go. There is a proper gauge/carbon cleaning tool that can be used but I will not spend $200.00 on something that can be done with an affordable set of pin gauges. These gauges are similar to headspace gauges with a good, ok and worn out.

    Good is .528, still has some life in it .530 and not much good for anything unless you know someone who can machine an oversize op-rod piston and hone out the gas cylinder to match. Just find a good used one or like this new old stock part.

    Gauges.

    Now pick up the gas cylinder and look down the tube part. See where the little Philips head screwdriver is pointing at? That little ridge is the wear point that we will be checking.

    Starting with the .528, it should slide right into the cylinder.

    In it goes!

    Now take the .530 gauge. It should not go in unless there is some bit of wear in the cylinder. There is no wear here and it hits that ridge. Looking good.

    The .532 gauge will not go in either. If it did, your gas cylinder is pooched.

    Now slide it onto the barrel/splines. It may need a little tap tap tap to go on. If so use a soft faces hammer or a block of wood. Best place to aim at is the bayonet lug as not to break anything important.
    Looks good.

    Next is the gas cylinder lock. Simple to install, it just threads on. This is a NOS one so it goes on darned nice.

    No need to over tighten it. If it will not line up easy, back it off till it does. Notice the small space between the lock and the gas cylinder? That is good.

    Gas cylinder lock screw. It does what it sounds like it should. Check out what you have, some nasty basterds will sell you junk. This one has a small crack. It may work, it may not. You spend enough on these projects to be let down by a leaking lock screw.

    I keep a few around so there is always something better to use.
