I've got a DPMS with a 16" bare post-ban barrel. I'm going to put a Phantom on it (Adco). I'm just not sure what to do with the barrel length.
1. Put the Phantom on the untouched 16" barrel.
Pros...no possible gas system/functioning issues (or would there be)?
...16" vs. 14.5" ballistics.
Con...approx 17.5" barrel overall.
2. Chop barrel to 14.5 and perm. attach Phantom.
Pro...barrel would be approx. 16" overall.
Cons...would gas system have to be adjusted?
...14.5" vs. 16" ballistics.
I don't think there'd be any considerable difference in ballistics, hence no need to adjust the gas system.
Mods...if I put this in the wrong forum, could you move this thread?
How would you purmentaly attach it? And still make it look good?
