View Full Version : Ident/Technical: gas plugs

December 08, 2002, 02:27
Was going over two of my rifles and noticed that they have different gas plugs. So my question is what is what???

The one on the left came from a M444 (Imbel kit? on GL receiver) and the one on the right came from a Dan's Imbel grade II kit.
Obviously not the same.

Left one is copied after original FN type, designed so that base of a cartridge can be used to turn the gas plug (try it ;) )

The right is later Imbel type, found on the Springfield Armory SARs also. The Imbel manual shows a screwdriver used to turn the gas plug.
