DoubleStar Presents its Superlite Gas Block

Weighing in at just 2.4 oz. it’s light yet rugged

Winchester, Ky. (March 2017) – DoubleStar Corp, manufacturers of high-quality, US-made AR components, rifles and pistols, proudly presents its Superlite Gas Block.

“If you are looking for an option for same plane sights on a lightweight but durable gas block, this is it!” said Nick Collier, director of special operations for Doublestar.

The Superlite Gas Block is machined from rugged 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum and Type III hard coat anodized to match the finish of most AR style uppers. A distinguishing feature of the Superlite block is that the included 1913 Picatinny rail matches the height of any standard mil spec flattop upper receiver.  This allows the use of any same-plane flip up front sight. No more searching for a gas block height sight, which are few and far between.  The Superlite Block weighs in at just 2.4 oz. It features 5 set screws to ensure a secure fit to your barrel and prevent movement.   This block is long enough to cover where the front sight pins may have been in the barrel to give your build a sleek look.

MSRP of the Superlite Gas Block is $46.99. For more information on DoubleStar, visit
