I'm strongly considering building an SBR.

Probably the way to go. That way you can play with it till your paperwork clears ATF

How are non-pistol/SBR 300 blackouts? I always hear about pistols and SBRs, but not the longer barrel lengths.

They were designed around the shorter barrels, but it works fine out of 16" and longer barrels.

To the OP: AAC makes .300blk uppers. They're pretty high on my list. Noveske .300blk barrels are killer, too.
The above post is my personal opinion.

I'm pretty sure that all prices are higher now, even as panic goes down.. Pre-panic; I was watching a 14.5" Noveske 5.56 upper that was $1280, and a 12.5" AAC 300 BLKOUT upper that was $1080. They sold out soon after the panic started. A few weeks ago the Noveske one popped back up at the same dealer for about $1400. I haven't seen any 12.5" AAC's come back, so.. I assume when they do they may be higher as well.

I was gonna go the SBR pistol route for the AAC one, until I knew what state I was going to be staying in. Ammo was the reason I didn't buy it before it sold out.. That's the only downside I have seen about 300 blk.

I rolled my own with a barrel from Midway.

Haven't had a chance to shoot it as a pistol, yet... I've only hand-loaded 8 rounds so far, and can't find any commercial.

ETA: Got all my parts before the panic.

I have a 14.5 pinned and I like it alot. Its a fun little round that is cheap to reload.

I have an 8 inch delta arms barrel

It is really accurate and has been perfect function wise. I would recommend it to anyone

Built my own upper, more fun that way (it has a 8 in noveske barrel).
