Guys please be careful especially at gun shows there are a lot of people renting tables and selling Chinese junk at twice what I see it for on places like GEEK. That being said for things like grips or bipods sure give them a go. for stuff that you need to work like BCGs, charging handles, triggers etc steer away from the Chinese junk.

Wow. I think I just partly answered my own question lol.
Semper Fi!
You probably know more than I do. It was a secondary MOS for me and I spent more time with M60 and M2 door guns. The M16A2 and Beretta were issued just before I discharged.
Camp Wilson was just a tent city in my day. We played poker for pink rocks for entertainment.

Yeah, I'd just do what Clandestine suggested and elongate the tube hole to match by hand.
I'd clamp the gas block in my Drill Press vice and use a tiny end mill through the hole. But lacking those tools, I'd scratch the tube with an awl or Dental Pick, pull it out and gently Dremel the hole with an appropriate size burr. Flame me gently please.

Yeah, there was a table at the Gettysburg show with someone selling a bunch off SR-25 barrels. I was tempted at $58...but I have zero recourse if it sucks. At least most reasonably reputable and inexpensive dealers online will exchange it if the barrel blows monkeys.

Let alone someone nice. I usually go lower end barrels in builds just because so far in life Iíve run in to one barrel (hey, it was on sale for $48 from Brownellís, generic manufacturer and it was for a short range HD carbine with a red dot. 2.5MOA is just fine) that hasnít gotten me to at least 1MOA with the right ammo and at that point it is just as likely something else is having more impact on my accuracy than the barrel.
