AR-15 Gas Systems – Why to pick Mid over Carbine and Carbine over Pistol Length

AR-15 Gas Systems

When selling pistols, carbines, and rifles using the AR DI gas system, I always stress getting the longest gas system you can for the barrel you are using.  This is why I primarily sell 16″ carbine systems with a mid-length gas system, and I suggest pistol buyers stick with the 10.5″ versions as they can use a carbine-length gas system.  The article below gives you the facts behind the suggestion.

The gas port and tube that causes the bolt to cycle. These parts, from the gas port drilled in the barrel, through the gas block, tube, and the gas key in the bolt carrier, collectively make up the gas system. With a few (piston-driven or single-shot) exceptions that we won’t discuss here, pretty much all ARs cycle this way.

What changes, though, is the location of the gas port along the barrel. The gas port MUST be located far enough from the muzzle that the pressure has time to kick the bolt carrier back before the bullet exits about 1/4000th of a second later. That demands that the gas port be a certain size, and a certain distance from the muzzle — which actually varies, because pressures change as you go further from the chamber.

So shorter barrels need a shorter gas tube, and with the gas port closer to the chamber, the pressures are higher.

Not just a little higher, either. Dramatically higher.

Look at the chart below:
Gas System Gas Port Location Pressure (PSI)
Pistol 4.7″ 48,300
Carbine 7.8″ 33,000
Mid-Length 9.8″ 26,500
Rifle 13.2″ 19,600

This means the shorter your gas system is, the higher the pressures it’s subjected to. The bolt and carrier are slammed harder; they work harder, and the whole system becomes far more sensitive to anything that’s not perfect.

In addition, a shorter gas system is inevitably harsher in operation, because it has to cycle in a shorter time.

The original design was the rifle length system, and that’s what the gas system is designed around. At rifle length, an aluminum gas block is fine, which keeps weight down. But with the carbine length, the pressures are almost twice as high, and an aluminum gas block will eventually be eroded by the hot gas charges.

If you’re using a carbine length gas system, or even a mid-length, a steel gas block is recommended.

Also, as the gas systems get shorter, the size of the gas port increases, because they need to bleed off a lot of pressure in a shorter time. If the gas port is too small, the rifle will short-stroke, probably resulting in failures to feed. The port can be drilled larger, but this should be done by a qualified gunsmith, or you risk ruining the barrel.

On the other hand, if the port is too big, the rifle will be “overgassed.” That can send the gas impulse to the bolt too early, while the shell is still locked into the chamber by pressure, and cause it to fail to eject. At the very least, an overgassed rifle will be harsh to shoot. This can be addressed with an adjustable gas block, which lets you control how much gas bleeds through, allowing you to find the point where it cycles reliably.

For what it’s worth, most 14.5″ and 16″ barrels are set up for carbine gas systems, though you can find 16″ barrels with mid-length systems. The mid-length system (not an official standard, by the way, but an industry standard nonetheless) is commonly found on 18″ barrels, but they can be had with rifle length systems. And rifle length gas systems are standard on 20″ and longer barrels, and there’s NO reason to ever want to go shorter. In general, the longer your gas system is, the smoother and more reliably it’ll operate – though you do need a certain minimum dwell time after the bullet passes the gas port.

Surplus Army M19A1 7.62X51mm NATO M80 (.30 cal) Ammo Cans $10ea

7.62X51 ammo cans in very good condition

7.62X51 ammo cans in very good condition

These are surplus ammo cans straight from the White Sands Missile Range here in New Mexico.  From the designation on the can, you can see that these cans originally contained standard M80 ball cartridges in M13 linked belts.  The can would have contained two 100-round belts in cartons inside of the can.

Model M19A1
Dimensions: 10″ x 6.5″ x 3.5″
Steel ammunition chest
Rubber seal
Lay flat carrying handle
Hinged lid
Latch closure (can be locked with additional parts)

These cans are in very good condition and the seals on them are in excellent condition.  The ammo in these cans would have been recently shot such that the cans are still in near mint condition. These can be used for ammo storage or any other items you wish to store in an air, humidity, and water-tight manner. You can depend on the can and seal to last many years.

The cans are available for sale at our store in Rio Rancho and for those on the south end of town, in Belen. They are reasonably priced at $10.00 each, tax included.

These cans are generally known as .30 cal cans as they were originally designed to hold belts of .30 caliber machine gun bullets.

The 7.62X51mm NATO round was developed in the 1950s for the M14 rifle and the M60 machine gun.  Since these cartridges were on linked belts that means they were intended for machine gun use, not rifle use.  Very few of these are used in rifles any longer as the M14 rifle was superseded by the M16 which used the 5.56X45 NATO round.  However the 7.62mm round known in the civilian world as the .308 Winchester is still used in sniper rifles and for other special purposes in addition to machine gun use.

It was discovered in Vietnam that the M14 rifle was too long and heavy for jungle warfare and the size and weight of the cartridges limited the number of rounds that could be carried.  The commies had the same issue with their AK-47 ammo but they never wised up and still carry the bigger, heavier cartridges.  This chart helps show the comparison in what a soldier could carry:

Rifle Cartridge Cartridge weight Weight of loaded magazine 10 kg (22#) ammo load
M14 7.62×51mm 393 grains (25.5 g) 20 rds @ 0.68 kg 14 mags / 280 rds
M16 5.56×45mm 183 grains (11.9 g) 20 rds @ 0.3 kg 33 mags / 660 rds
AK-47 7.62×39mm 281 grains (18.2 g) 30 rds @ 1.2 kg* 8 mags / 240 rds

(*AK-47 magazines are much heavier than M14 and M16 magazines)

The 7.62X51mm cartridge remained the main machine gun round well in to the 1990s but for light machine gun use, has been replaced by the 5.56X45 NATO round in widespread use of the M249 SAW.  The 7.62 is still used in the M60E4, the M240 and by the Germans in their HK21 and MG3.

We just got in some 40mm cans into stock at our Belen location.  They are selling for $20 each
