Mil-Spec Gas Tubes have been and always will be a-ok. A better finish like Melonite doesn't solve the core problem that the steel of the gas tube can weaken and deform under high heat applications such as a very heavy firing cycle. V Seven solves this problem by making a "Extrem Environment" gas tube that can handle full-auto sustained and suppressed firing schedules by using a superior material: Inconel.
Used in baffles for hard use suppressors that are subjected to dangerously high temperatures, Inconel baffles offer extreme performance. By replacing the weak link in a direct impingement gun, the Inconel gas tube makes the DI system even more robust.
Not necessary for most shooters, however if you train hard and/or are using a suppressor most of the time, the EE tubes from V Seven will take whatever you can throw at it.
