Current pics aren't much, but here's my SBR .45. 7.5 inch barrel cut and threaded by Gemtech, Olympic FIRSH handguard, Gemtech Blackside. Barrel extends about a quarter inch past handguard.

Is there a front sight?

No front sight yet. The FIRSH handguard is slightly larger diameter than some, so I'll have to check on a rail front sight. Also have an old Trilux SUIT sight to try out.

Swap uppers for a flattop and put an Eotech on there My integrally suppressed unit is set up as such. For now get yourself a YHM fixed front sight that will mount on the forend. I'm eagerly awaiting Tangochaser's lower so I can SBR mine and cut the welds on my can so it will be removeable. Right now I'm running a Cav lower so I can use the 30 round greasegun magazines. The .45acp setup is alot of fun.

Is your can fairly quiet dry? I'm seriously considering a blackside for my pistol but am interested in it's use on a carbine when run dry. I run my integral dry and it's about as loud as a paintball gun.

Just got the Blackside recently and haven't shot it yet. I've thought about getting a flattop upper if Olympics are available. Thanks for the info on the sight. I have a Glock 21 that I can use the Blackside on also.

Job well done. It looks great

Nice job. I have an Oly .45 upper that I'm considering doing an SBR on, but I'm planning to stick with the original FSB and handguards, but all that can change before it all happens.

Sweet lookin set up! I'm curious (I'm new to the whole pistol caliber upper thing) whats the deal with your mag block, is it an M3 mag conversion? More to the point, where can I get one

The mag block came with the Olympic Arms rifle. Lower is Olympic AR15, upper is Olympic that is modified by them for pistol calibers, magazines for the .45 are modified UZI mags to fit the standard magwell with the mag block in place. Olympic Arms is the only maker of the uppers as far as I know at this time. Others are working on lowers in development to accept greasegun mags at this time. CAV Arms has the polymer lower that will take greasegun mags with an adapter. Check this link for Olympic products. Additionally, more products and aftermarket items are available for the 9 mm than the .45
