I guess I'll know after the first firing if the gas port (if blocked with crud) will clear out with the first round or not.
Its going to have a port drilled in it. You can stick a rod/wire at an angle down through the port on the top of the gasblock where the regulator is installed all the way through to the barrel. If the gas plug is installed make sure it is in the right position, it can be installed to either let gas through or be turned 180 degrees to block the gas port.
