Guns JP Has a New .875 Adjustable Gas Block Recoil Staff February 2, 2017 0 COMMENT JP Enterprises has sent word they’ve released a new entry in their adjustable gas block lineup. Intended to expand options for what they describe as an “underserved market of barrels with .875 gas block journals”, their new AGB is a two-piece design intended for quick and easy installation on barrels with pinned and welded muzzles treatments. It also features a click-adjustable detent system, so you can more easily repeat set up and secure retention of the gas screw. JP has been doing adjustable gas systems for a long time, as you can read here. In fact, as JP Enterprises founder John Paul (get it? John Paul – JP?) tells it, “We were the first on the market with adjustable gas systems, the first of which we came out with circa 1993. We’ve always seen the tuning of the operating system as crucial to optimizing the function of the rifle overall and cutting down on recoil. These gas blocks elevate that to an entirely new level.” Here’s how the whole rundown. Industry News: JP Enterprises New .875 Adjustable Gas Block Hugo, MN – Offering new options for the underserved market of barrels with .875 gas block journals, JP Enterprises debuts an all-new entry into their line of adjustable gas blocks. The two-piece design of the new JPGS-10D allows for easier installations on barrels with pinned and welded muzzle treatments. At the same time, the new click-adjustable detent system allows for a repeatable setup and secure retention of the gas screw. The new detent mechanism of the JPGS-10D eliminates the need to access the front of the block for adjustment, which can be an issue when running extended hand guards. Access for adjustment is easily done from the side of JP hand guards. Many other brands of hand guard are also compatible. In addition to allowing quick and repeatable adjustment increments, the ball detent is captured. Removal of the gas adjustment screw can be done without the worry of losing small parts. This stainless steel gas block comes on the heels of JP’s existing .750 model (JPGS-9D) with a new .936 version coming out later in 2017. Industry News. What are you seeing here?
