Does anyone make one of these?

I'd like a 7" as I saw someone who put a Noveske KX3 on a 7" barrel with a MI 9" quad rail, and I loved the way it looked. That person used a SS barrel though, so I haven't bothered to IM him about his exact barrel.

If I went with a 7.5" barrel (which seems to be more common), it would be close, but more of the KX3 would show, and I really liked the way it looks. Another option is to go with 7.5" and get a 10" rail...but that too would throw off the ratio a bit as less of the KX3 would show. My main goal is to NOT see the step up from the barrel to the flash suppressor.

here's the pistol, it belongs to REVBCO:

mine and revbco's are almost identical, i have a rainier match barrel, it is stainless steel with 1in 8 twist. its a really nice barrel and cost 275 but its worth it. i have the spikes tactical STAB muzzle brake and it works like a charm

Perhaps such a barrel is non-existant...

Could you have a 1:7 barrel cut down to what u need?

It would still be 1:7 after all is said and done.

That would be a last resort. Any idea what that would cost, and who does arfcom trust with this task?

Looks like I'll be getting the CMMG 7.3" barrel. It has two of my 3 criteria (1:7 twist + chrome lined), and at least it's not a full 7.5"...it will be an economical compromise.

Cutting a 16" barrel down will cost too much. It will run about $165 just to get it cut down, crowned, threaded and tapped...plus the barrel will be over $250. The CMMGs are like $255 stripped.

I started to put one together last night, and the low profile gas block was $60...and th BCG was $160. Those seemed like high numbers to me. Is all their stuff top notch? I could probably save $40 on the gas block and $40 on the BCG if I go with Yankee Hill for both.
