    Has anyone successfully cut their low pro gas block off at home without compromising their barrel?

    Why do you need to cut it off? Drive or drill out the pins/grub screws/clamp screws and remove it.

    Some have, but more have messed up the barrel.

    What’s the issue?

    I’m concerned why you need to make it even more low profile.

    Don’t cut, remove appropriately. There are all sorts of ways to “convince” them to come off normally. What makes you think you need to cut it off??? Pics would be helpful for us making suggestions as well as additional details as to what problem you are having.

    Closest ive done to cutting a gas block off was drilling out the stripped set screws

    The set screw was red loctited in there, just completely stripped on my first twist with the Allen key after the first screw came right out, I drilled out the screw completely and it basically just soldered the block to barrel. I tried everything I could to get it off, I finally drove over to the shop near my house and they got it off for me
