Whenever I have a gun project for one of our family of websites I always begin my parts search with our advertisers. I believe that one hand washes the other. In a perfect world I’ll find both inspiration and a solution while browsing Brownells. Evidence of this can be witnessed on the current ASA Side Charger AR-15 Project. Seventy percent of the parts are sourced from Brownells.  Then on the other hand there are times I suffer from a bit of decision paralysis.  In the case of the ASA Side Charger AR-15 I could not decide on a gas block. Fortunately I’m a lucky guy who has very knowledgeable friends, brothers and enablers and there is one such brother and enabler I shall refer to as FS2KSTD. When he speaks I listen. So in the case of the gas block he was my go to for advice. I explained the current project needs and his response was immediate “Superlative Arms”. Brownells at the time did not offer Superlative Arms so I purchased my SABO-DI-750CM direct from the manufacturer.

I am happy to report today is a new day and under Brownells “New Products” is the complete line of Superlative Arms  AR-15 Gas Blocks and Piston Kits.

The Superlative Arms “Bleed Off”, direct impingement, 30 position, forward venting, adjustable gas block. Gas adjustments are made by bleeding the gas out of the block, forward away from the operator, instead of restricting the flow like conventional adjustable blocks.

The Superlative Arms patented “Bleed Off”, direct impingement, gas block for the AR15 platform adjusts the gas flow by bleeding the gas out of the block instead of restricting the flow like conventional adjustable blocks.  Results:

  • The pressure used in the block is reduced only to the amount required to drive the bolt carrier. The remaining gas / pressure are bled out of the block allowing the system to run much cleaner and cooler.
  • Reduction of felt recoil.
  • Patent pending adjustment detent is located outside of the block and therefore no contamination.
  • The gas adjustment screw does not restrict the gas flow; therefore there is no erosion or seizing of the screw / no loss of detent due to carbon build up.  Although it is removable, we have added a safety mechanism, which stops you from unintentionally backing the screw all the way out.
  • When using SBR’s and / or suppressors the bleed off port allows the excessive pressure to be exhausted out of the block reducing blow back.

30 position adjustable gas “Bleed Off” vents the excess gas forward away from the operator instead of restricting it, and is a Superlative Arms LLC. design alone.
