    I hope the close-up pictures of the XYI help.
    I couldn't fit the gas tube on properly. It's 1 or 2mm long. Is it because the gas tube is NOS so it needs filing?

    Yes. You'll need to file on two places if it's an nos tube. Start filing the tube to gas block end first until the tube fits down in the slot on the rear sight block. Then you'll need to file the angled edge where the latch snugs down on the tube so it will latch.

    Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
    Can you show me what it looks like on an used gas tube?

    This is for a Tula style gas tube only. They differ as far as the nub that fits down into the recess on the rear sight block. Izzy ones are tapered and beveled to clear the edges on the sight block in order for the tube to slide down into its place. Tula like yours, has a square nub. This nub is not filed and will need to clear everything without any filing directly on that nub. This is done by gradually filing the tube to gas block end gradually until it fits all the way down and in the slot. Then you can file the top angle for the latch.

    I filed the beveled edge on this one. Nice flat even strokes with a flat file until I got the latch to go down with ease. The latch ended up snug, but not too snug or too loose.DSC08753.JPG

    One more thing...once the gas tube clears the edges and slides down into rsb, the little nub on the bottom must seat in its slot at the bottom on the rear sight block. If its not all the way down and you start filing away for the latch to clear you'll end up having taken too much material off.

    I always loved Dougs anology about Tula manufacturing, "they are rough and crude almost as if they were built by Vikings by hand" These side by side pics of the Tula compared to the Izzy shows that so perfectly... Love it!
    So, if you were to ask did ancient astronauts visit Earth in the remote past, the answer is a resounding "YES"
