The gas tube pin is a small roll pin that locks the gas tube into the gas block.

I think you pretty much have to get any AR parts of of this state. MidwayUSA and Brownells have parts.

Time waits for no one--
treasure every moment you have.

Could not wait left work early today to see if th brown truck delivered my package. When I got home it was on the front porch. :smiley-funny-post-sign: Then I take the package inside and open it. :signlol2iu: no gas block as ordered and of course the place is already closed for the day. So I get my upper and lower out of the safe with the forearm. I go to try and mount the barrel and the barrel nut will not fit over the barrel. :1019: So I call the company I bought the forearm from and the salesman gives me to one of the guys in the backl that assembles guns. I tell him my problem and he says you can ream the opeinng I ask how exact does it need to be and he says just dont over do it: LOL The opening measure .98 and the barrel is 1.045. I take a dremel to it and about 45 minutes of nail biting and dremeling. I then polished the inside and it fit tight over the barrel and the barrel nut screwed on nicely. Can't even tell I reamed the opening. So I assembled the barrel and the free float forearm so here it is with out the gas block. I am goign to call first thing in the am and if they will not overnight on their dime I found one from riflegear in southern California for half the price and I will just pay to overnight it so I can get it together Wednesday and take it to the range Thursday before leaving for Cedarville Friday AM RobertOh yeah Fjold it did come with the gass tube pin :D

Yea, but then you pay $8+ to attend a crappy gun show for a .10 part. It's looking good...loooong barrel :signs1242cn:
