Unitized gas system

As a newb I am trying to get a better idea of how a unitized gas system would affect the reassembly as opposed to a separate front band and gas cylinder, particularly the way the gas cylinder lock rotates into position. Would it be exactly the same? Slightly different? Any enlightenment appreciated.

The cylinder lock will index in the same position if welding is used. If epoxy is used, the lock may index a small amount farther from dead bottom, not enough to be concerned about. Make certain the same surface of lock is forward when assembling.. Hope this helps.. Art

Since the gas cylinder and barrel band are permanently fixed together in a unitized assembly, the stock ferrule may not have adequate space for the band to slip over it. On accurized rifles, the front of the stock and ferrule are relieved or opened up to accomodate the unitized gas cylinder assembly. This allows free movement between the band and ferruleassuming the rifle has been bedded or has good bedding as is.
