    No you won't, I've read far too many of your posts for you to ever admit you don't know everything.

    On this particular disagreement I have no opinion because I'm that guy that never reads the manual unless something breaks.

    You nust be confusing me with somebody else, i say all the time that i don't know everything. However, i do know a few things. One of those things is the ar15, even then, i dont know everything about it. I can sit here all day and explain why the things on it are, but I'm not the person to ask about bolt thrust vectoring, or any number of other extremely in depth topics people talk about.


    "On this particular disagreement I have no opinion"

    Yet here you are. If you have no opinion, why are you accusing me of not knowing about this subject?

    Just look at the bolt and gas rings, and insert it in the carrier and pull it out. This isn't rocket science if you have even a rudimentary understanding of mechanics.

    I replace the barrel AND gas tube after every 10 rounds. Gas rings too.

    Lol I'm here to jerk your chain and poke fun at your pedantry. I said nothing about you knowing or not knowing about the topic.

    What I have no opinion about is the gas rings, I've never spaced the gaps or given it a second thought, it's obvious they compress like piston rings, (they essentially serve the same purpose) and would never stay in a specifc orientation.

    Pedantry... Only when people (not you) accuse me of "stupidity", and make a big deal about how a bit of stupid BS thats been floating around gun shops like a turd in a punch bowl is set in stone fact.

    Crotchety, know it all both yes. Cheap - we spend too much on guns & ammo to be cheap!

    Just having a little fun at your expense and the seriousness of the debate over something so minor. No offense intended to the participants.

    You get ten points for properly using an obscure word in a sentence and context.

    Well done sir. Well done.
