There are different barrel configurations without the gas-block/front sight. Some people choose to use a rail system for mounting a sight. An AR doesn't have to come in a configuration with the gas-block/front sight.

The gas-block combined with front sight is just an efficient, light-weight design that I guess the military likes.
