After much searching I have a very fundemental newbie question. Can anyone tell me exactly what a gas block does? I know it is critical in functioning of the AR's but dont know just what it does. Thanks

i think the best way to describe what it does to you is this. its kinda like an intake manifold on a motor. it takes the gas from the barrel and distributes it to the bolt through the tubes thus cycling the rounds.
