    This may be common knowledge, if so delete it. I've read many topics here concerning poor gas block alignment and here's what I do to assure the gas block is positioned correctly. I only use set screw gas blocks. I slide the block on and position it so the rear set screw hole is close to aligned with the dimple, install and tighten the set screw and allow the rounded leading edge of the screw to push/pull the gas block into perfect alignment relative to the dimple. The set screw will actually move the block that teensy bit you need for centering. I then install the front set screw with some blue loctite on the threads, let it set up, remove the rear set screw and use blue loctite and re-install. With BCM blocks the rear set screw will also be below flush if you've hit the mark. Regardless the block used, the rear/dimple set screw will be further into the block than the muzzle end screw.

    All the above is moot if the dimple is not drilled in the correct spot, but ARP hasn't failed me

    I was trying to keep this thread just for the actual hints and tips and not directly for troubleshooting individual rifles, otherwise this thread could get pretty jumbled up and hard to find what you are looking for......can you start a new thread with your problem/question? In short you are over gassed

    Also I don't mean to be snarky...but this thread was meant for people just like yourself in need of help to read it for common problems and fixes so the same questions don't need to be answered over and over again.....the picture you are referring to has the ways to fix your problem right on it if you read it. (You can try a stronger spring, a heavier buffer or carrier, or an adjustable has block). ....

    Please don't take this the wrong way as this thread is here to help, sorry if it comes across wrong.

    LUCK
    is the residue leftover when you subtract chance from preparation.



    If you reload, turn a flat based bullet around and seat it backwards in the case with apx .170 of the full dia part of the bullet left outside the case. Chamber it. If it chambers you have a SPCII. If not start seating the bullet deeper. If the full diameter part of the bullets ends up apx .070 out it is a SAAMI chamber.
