Title says it all --

I love the look that the 10.5s & dissipators (11.5 slightly too long) have -- FH just forward of the FSB -- and wondered if anyone had considered doing that with a 12.5-13" barrel and midlength 9 inch handguard?

I think it would look great and would eliminate a couple of problems:
1. 10.5s are REALLY loud (although that can be fun )
2. A lot of velocity loss with 10.5
3. Many silencer mfrs will not warranty their cans with anything shorter than 11.5

Anyone seen or heard of anyone doing an upper like this? I'm broke-ish otherwise I'd try it real soon. Maybe later this year I will build one.

I never tried it, but it sounds like an intersting project. Good Luck!

In discussions with POF Frank mentioned a 13.6 bbl with Krinkov FH = 16.1 total. The use of the 12" predator would give it a Dissy look.
His concern was/is maintenance on the piston system without removal the rail. I hope it works out I think it would be awesome.

I have heard talk of 12.5 midlengths before. I don't know details. KevinB says they are teh hot shit right now in some circles.

My next upper will probably be a 13.65" Noveske with a Krink.
