View Full Version : Gas block/SBR question

25 October 2014, 14:44
Will a titanium GB from 2A give me problems on WOA 10.5 barrel with WAR upper suppressed? After I ordered it, I thought about the heat that might be generated in that area. I know titanium heats up faster so I am not sure if it'll be an issue or not. Im probably just over thinking it but I'm curious and wanted to know if anyone had any experience with similar setups.

Titanium has a lower thermal coefficient of expansion than steel. It's going to get tighter as it heats up. It's also more susceptible to erosion. I might worry about it I was doing full auto mag dumps, especially with a pistol or carbine gas system. Otherwise, I think you'll be fine.

It does get hotter faster but also cools way faster than steel. Steel likes to hold onto heat. Never heard of Ti having erosion issues tho. Weird.

Thanks for the help.
