Am I crazy...

Recommended Posts

So first post other than introduction, and hopefully it’s going to be a fun one.. I’ve got this idea of a setup with a 16-16.5 barrel, rifle length gas, adjustable block, carbine tube, and mainly ran suppressed, but would like it to reliably run unsuppressed... am I crazy? too short of dwell without can? Would love opinions either way..

For the working barrel configuration from one specific manufacturer, here's what works, unsuppressed.  16" barrel, rifle gas, medium-heavy contour, 0.936" gas block journal size, 0.105" gas port diameter.

OP, this is the barrel to look for - when it's back in stock.  Don't mean to preach or anything, but you picked a bad time to build one, I'm just sayin'...   :thumbup:

Thanks! I have had my eye on that one ever since I finished this build in March before everything dried up. I live in one of the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad states, so forgive the brace, somehow qualifies as an “other firearm” which is exempt from our awb. Cannot confirm journal size on current aero precision, but was thinking worst comes to worst, barrel cut.. but is it worth my time for the extra 2”? (That’s what she said) plus barrel is fluted so no go on cut? 3535CA7A-B37B-49EB-964B-13A4912125F7.thumb.jpeg.efb6ae799cfbe8d601cd4fc08b992b08.jpeg32C0F042-D0E5-4C53-A24D-8BABDA2BCE5A.thumb.jpeg.2665a7946625ca803ec296287938fd84.jpeg
Other option I’m bouncing around is a mid gas 14.5...
