    The SWR Spectre can handle FA 22LR, .17hmr, and 5.7. It can not, however, handle .223. You can disassemble for cleaning as well.

    This is the route I plan to take. I don't have a SBR PS90, yet, but I plan to someday.

    Not sure if they make one that accepts 22lr/.223/5.7

    surefire's 5.56mm can will do 22 and 5.45 IIRC. just like their .308 cans will do 7.62x39. :dunno:

    If you want a dedicated .22 can get a AAC element or SWR specter. Don't use centerfire cans on .22's they'll get leaded up quickly. Since AAC's rifle cans are all fully welded that would be a bad idea.

    Get a dedicated .22 can for .22LR, don't dirty up your expensive 5.56 can.

    I'd get something fully welded for 5.56. AAC probably makes the best one out right now. Anything that's .223 rated should be fine for 5.7.

    I'd just a run a SPR/M4 on a 16". The short barrels are really abusive on cans. My m4-1000 already has some erosion on the 2 baffles after the blast baffle from running it on a 10.5". It maybe has 1500 rounds thru it. :o The longer barrels increase can life a lot by like double compared to a 10.5.

    I think selling the whole upper would net you more money, but buying a new 12.5 upper would cost more than buying just the barrel.

    SPR on 11.5" or longer IF you use a low-profile gas block, like a Noveske or some such doodad. That's what I'm doing with mine, if I ever get around to sending money to the gov't.
