  3. John (verified owner)

    Just what I wanted. Matches nicely with my Geissele gas block. This my first build and wanted to go with premium parts on my light weight 20” rifle. Thanks Rosco

    Parts arrived early, complete order of gas tube and gas block. Both parts are excellent quality and installed for a perfect fit in minutes. I will definitely continue to purchase parts from you guys!

    Functions as it should. Ordered two of these through Rosco and another distributor and both arrived with cracked/open packages. Unsure if they come with a roll pin or not but had to go buy some after they arrived which was a bit disappointing.

    The best of the best when using with a Rosco gas block. On par with Spike’s when using any brand of gas block besides Rosco. Very high quality, can’t go wrong.

    This is my second time buying a Bloodline barrel, non adjustable gas block and melanite gas tube !
    Great quality and workmanship!
    Don’t hesitate to make the purchase, you will be so happy when you open the package. Even that is done with care!!! Professional ? Hell yes…

    I had a Rosco 12.5″ that I wanted to match with bolt carrier and gas/tube (carbine) combo. I bought the matching components separately and wish they would bring back the sauce packs ! Probably would buy another set just to have (lol). The parts fit perfect as described so far. Full test and review on build when it’s done. All Rosco stuff is top quality feel, dimensions and fit. Mounting the tube to the block was tight but right ! I also checked the dimensions when the block mates to the barrel and found that the block is shouldered next to the barrel. The barrel is dimpled (once) and the spacing appears to be perfectly in line with the opening. A simple check of the block on with no tube attached and verify the opening by viewing from the bottom up (alignment). Thanks Rosco for making a great product(s) and making a custom build simple yet professional.

    Bought their Carbine length melonite gas tube. Came protected in its own plastic tube like you’d see on a shelf; not just loose in a box like some manufacturers will if you order something directly from them. It slid perfectly into their gas block and my Anderson upper. Not much else to say, other than I’d wholeheartedly suggest this product to any of my friends or anyone else who asks.

    Just like all Rosco products, perfect fit! Rosco is my new “go to” for parts and accessories.

    Very nice gas tube. The finish smooth and it measures the correct length. I compared it to a couple mid length gas tubes from other manufacturers and noticed that the curvature from the gas block end moving toward the gas key end is a bit more shallow, but gets to the same height at the gas key end, based on my measurements. I doubt this will create a clearance issue, but I have not installed it yet. A straighter gas tube is better than one that is more radically curved, so this may be a minor benefit. Also, the gas tube came nicely packaged in a plastic outer tube and was clearly labeled.

    I am giving 4 out of 5 stars because a 5 cent gas block roll pin was not included. Really? I emailed customer service to verify and the gas tube does not include a gas block roll pin. Why? Quite literally every other brand I have used, and it has been more than a few, has come with a roll pin. I feel that not including a roll pin is silly and cheap. I can buy the 5/64″ x 5/16″ roll pins in a pack of 48 for $0.0417/per pin, and I’m just guessing that Rosco buys more than 48 at a time.

    #BarrelGang – Please include the roll pin in the future. I’m betting some of your customers don’t have a local FFL that is 2 miles from home, like I do. The owner of my favorite shop gave me two of them when I stopped in last time.

    Yes, it’s just a gas tube but, I had a problem with another catching on the gas key and causing the bolt to not go into full battery when hand cycling. Live fire was fine but it bothered me. I’m sure it was just that particular gas tube but I have a Rosco barrel and bought a Rosco gas block so I went with their tube. Problem solved. Overall, my semi brief experience with Rosco products has been great! I will continue to use their products!

    Simply ; The Best , Gotta Have Gas Tube . Tops !

  16. Jonathan Struemph (verified owner)

    The tube fit crisply in the gas block, and the pin went in with very few cuss words. The heart of this rifle is all Rosco and cycles very well and ejected brass in a close vicinity, telling that it’s gassed very well.

    These are well made gas tube with a good coating you can’t beat the price.
