I have a M60 E1 kit and have a new trunnion and semi auto rails coming. My big missing piece is an op rod gas tube. What is the difference between an E1 tube and an E3/E4 tube? Will the E3 tube fit a E1 op rod and barrel? If not, does anyone know where to get an E1 op rod gas tube?

Thanks

CT

The difference is a hole in the end to act as a capture point for the detent for the forearm on the E4.  you can fix that with an appropriate sized drill bit.

Thank you. That helps greatly. I've been trying to find parts and keep running into problems of some things not available for the E1.
