Accuracy Systems Gas Bushing

I got my gas bushings today and they will require some fitting. Can I cut the new one to the length of the stock one that I am replacing or should I measure as per their websites instructions? https://www.accuracysystemsinc.com/P...structions.php

So Ruger does a generic fit at the factory and there are gains to be had from a custom fit?

From the stock bushings I have, compared with the ASI ones I purchased, it's more a matter of ensuring the ASI bushing doesn't bind in the installed position and mess up the gas block or gas pipe.
A closer fit also benefits in less gas pressure loss.
The ASI measure and fit procedure is fairly simple. A carbide drill bit cuts the bushing steel best.

Excellent, thank you. I have a nice bench lathe that will make short work of it.
