View Full Version : G1 gas tube

Are these short or long? And soldered or threaded?
I'm planning on building a LB Izzy copy and don't have a long tube. Would I be asking for trouble by removing a short working tube to swap?

My G1 has the long tube.

Don't plan on swapping just the tube. You will need the whole gas block, as most short-tube StG58's are brazed and have no threads. :(

Sounds like the Izzy furniture would be better suited for the G1 kit.

Can you give us some more specifics, such as what make of barrel you are using. A true Izzy barrel uses a slightly different gas tube and piston. DSA has both available. But, the gas tube is dependent on the barrel and gas block, not the type of configuration you are building.
