gas block and free float tube

looking into getting a new gas block to replace the front sight tower. whats a good low profile or similiar. also wanting to put a free float tube on it. the gun just has standard handguards and a standard 16 inch barrel. the free float tube just needs to be smooth i dont need any rails or nothing like that. thanks

The Larue gas block is long enough to cover the space on the barrel where the front sight tower was located most of the other low profile gas blocks (Vltor, Troy) are shorter. This could be an issue if your barrel is not parkerized under the gas block/tower. Hogue makes a smooth tube style handguard but installation does require removal of the delta ring, barrel nut and front sight tower.
