Going to convert my rifle to a CAR. The gun does not see alot of action. It's a plinker. I'm leaning twoard the retro-look. Should I go with the 16" HBAR or a light weight? Long range accuracy is not a factor. Also, I was thinking a phantom flash hider or should I just stick with the A2 hider. Thanks in advance for your replies.

If you are going for retro, go with the 16" light weight. I'll see if I can dig up a picture.... Regarding the phantom vs A2, I would go with an A1.

If your not after the accuracy or heat dissipation, then by all means get the light weight barrel... The light weights are great if the carbine is going to be hanging from your shoulder/neck for long periods of time... As for the flash hider, The A1 or A2 is more retro but the phantom is more effective...

You can make up a model 653 (I think that the correct #) clone, which is what I went for in the lower weapon of the pic.

Stick, thanks for the pic. My upper is an A1, so I will probably go that direction. I really appreciate all the info that you guys share so willingly. There is so much to be learned, this web site is sort of like trying to take a drink from a fire hydrant. So much-so fast. Thanks again.

That's a nice setup Stickman, very retro...
I just wish ALL barrel manufacturers would start using the correct FSB instead of the .750" ones... It doesn't seem to be that big of a deal to do so? But hey, what the hell do I know?...

It would also be nice if one of the many lower receiver manufacturers would start making slab sides again too...
