I've got a bit of a problem with my new Arisaka M-Lok Finger stop, CMT hand guard and Ballistic Advantage gas block. I'd like to have my finger stop installed right below the gas block, but I need 1 more micron of clearance for the T-nut to turn. SO my questions:
Is it advisable to file down the top of the T-nut and screw so it doesn't touch the GB and will engage the slot?
If so, should I re-blu the newly untreated part?
Or am I looking into a world of hurt with such close proximity of the GB that the finger stop will get super hot and melt my fingers?
