    :dunno:

    want to do 10.5, but not sure and can't find one I want. What do you think?

    EDIT: i have about a month to decide, give or take.

    they're good too.

    CMMG actually makes a 10.3" upper which is the proper length if you wanted to do a Mk18 clone :dunno:

    if its 10.5 go LMT.

    the .2" doesnt really matter, unless you're an ARFcom faggot operator who has to have the real thing

    Wouldn't the flash hider count for the extra length?

    thats correct. and there'd be no point to that IMO (perm attaching a flash hider to an SBR)

    is this going to be in 5.56/223. My personal opinion but losing half the velocity of your ammo due to the short barrel is kind of weak. Personally for me the shortest I would go in a 5.56/223 barrel is 14.5 then I would add a comp which would help soften the recoil impulse and bring the lenght out to 16+. That of course would defeat the purpose of a SBR.

    Have you considered a 9mm AR w/ 10.5" barrel? That would be mad ill. At 10" you would get all the FPS out of the 9mm. The 9mm is less expensive than the 223. If you build the rifle to work off the colt style mags you can get really good steel mags from c-products or even 100 round beta mags.

    If I ever leave California this is the first thing I'm going to buy.

    hrm. hadn't thought of that who makes a good one? don't the 9mm mags look like shit in a .223 mag style receiver? good point on the money savings. And I already have 3 .223 AR's....

    dilemmas. talk me into it. what about doing the 10.5" upper as 9mm? I really do like the 10.5" versus 14. 14 just isn't short enough with all the 16's I have
