I don't want to go through the hassle of an SBR, next best option is a 14.5 with perma flash, right? so why does noone offer this?

I suppose because most would just rather SBR the rifle?
You can get a 16" and have it cut and pinned.

there would be no adverse affect to just having a 16" barrel cut down for purpose?

None that I could think of.  Drop a line to ADCO in the industry forums.  They do this stuff all the time.

Adco is also a Rock River Arms dealer.  If you buy it from Adco, they may cut you a deal on the modification work.

I picked up a 14.5 9mm upper from spikes a couple of years agio because i didn't want to SBR anything. I have no complaints what so ever.

Just find a ban model with no FH.  Cheaper and simpler, with none of the downsides.

This is exactly what I did.  I also did the midlength.  That brought the fsb out and minimized the barrel.  Gave it a SBRish look.
Also used a phoenix flash hider which is a little longer than standard.

I don't imagine so.  There's no gas system to be tweaked to the new barrel length.

You could also get it cut to 14.7", so you could use a standard length FH.  Lots of options either way...

That is a promag and would NOT recommend them.  Stick with colt or cproducts.
The only good that promag was being cheap and me not worry about painting it.  
Didnt function worth a shit.

think what he means is have it cut to this length, thread it 1/2 28 and then you can take and use any standard 223 muzzle device to make length as long as you open up the inside of the 223 muzzle device first to allow a 9mm projectile to pass through..... because we all know that if that little part was not done you would have a nasty kaboom at the end of the barrel.


You mean you can't shoot the whole bigger?

I liive in a "No SBRs alllowed" state and have a 16" 9 mm barrel with a plain thread protector.  With a barrel that long, for 9 mm ammo (and .22 ammo for that matter) there's no need for a flash hider.

Best of luck with whatever you decide.

Not legal advice, MHO, YMMV, etc.
