The AR Gas Vent is a unique product that addresses the problem of gas blow back when firing a suppressed AR-15 rifle. Back pressure caused by suppressor use sends gasses and lubricants back into the user's face and can prevent effective engagement of targets after just a few rounds being fired.
It is difficult to effectively shoot at a target when your eyes are watering or shut from hot/irritating propellant gases, or when lubricants are being shot back onto your eye protection.
The AR Gas vent helps redirect a large amount of gas away from the shooter's face by creating a large channel which vents gas away from the upper receiver. When used in conjunction with a charging handle which has been RTV Sealed, gas blow back is VASTLY reduced.
Fitment note for uppers with threaded set screws for the forward assist (such as the Aero Precision M4E1 Uppers):
- Tools: 1/16" Allen Wrench (to remove threaded roll pin), 3/32" Drill bit
- Use the drill bit to ream out the cut for the roll pin on the Gas Vent until the set screw fits inside the channel, while the Gas Vent is outside the upper (in a vice or stabilized on a bench)
- Test fit that the threaded set screw will nest inside the channel
- Install when complete
NOTE: Use of the Gas Vent removes the use of a forward assist.
