Maybe replace the handguard with a Magpul handguard (https://www.magpul.com/products/moe-...carbine-length) and add a pictatinny rail to the handguard, then put the laser under the handguard on the rail?

I think that the OP has a Gas Block with a built in Picatinny rail and is asking for brands/models, that wouldn't fall apart/come off/change POI, under recoil from the .308.

I’d be concerned about heat affecting a laser on a gas block. I’d agree with the above about changing out the handguard.

There are any number of lasers intended for compact/ subcompact pistol that would be suitable size . But as noted above , the heat would be the problem .

A laser on that gas block rail is going to interfere with sighting. Better to get a scope or red dot with a built in laser and fasten that sucker on the receiver. Or, replace the handguard and put it underneath.

ETA: I am not sure about heat +laser, but I would definitely worry about heat + battery for laser. That gas block gets hot!

not sure that you can put anything on that handguard. Hence my suggestion for replacement. Me, I would have replaced it already with a free float rail. But the Magpul option is $40 ish
