This past weekend, I took off the sight tower/gas block and cut off the tower in hopes of being able to salvage the part. I decided to do this because the barrel was already drilled for this type of gas block, it saves me about $60 and was actually fun to do. shaped it, sanded it, polished it and then blued it with Casey's paste. The bluing actually came out ok, but overall the piece was just too shiny for the flat-black barrel. So, I ended up spraying it with some 500 degree flat black engine paint. Looks pretty good; I'll have to see how I like it when I have everything together.
