    I have this same gas block on my 300 Blackout build that I upgraded from a standard "micro" gas block.  I love the operation of it and unlike most of the other adjustable blocks which feature a threaded restrictor that is secured with a small grub/lock screw the Odin uses a ball detent (that's the setscrew on the side...it's not to lock in the adjustment, it is basically a cap screw for the ball and spring and is not to be messed with) adjuster rod that has something like 18 settings.  Very easy to adjust and it stays put without having to mess with a set screw.

     The only negative is the overall shape as where the small cap screw on the side for the ball & spring.  You can see that because of the ball detent feature there is a protrusion on the right side and it will interfere with narrower handguards.  I'm not running a suppressor, I got this gas block to fine tune the operating system to my handloads, and now it runs extremely smooth with a much softer recoil impulse.  Overall it's a great gas block and worth its price.
