I'm looking into building a 7 inch SBR (YES, I KNOW ABOUT NFA.... ) and I'm trying to get an idea of the total length of the rifle to see if it will fit in the 5.11 Select Carry Sling Pack.

The total length of the firearm that the bag will hold is 600mm which comes out to about 23.6220472 inches..... yes, I'm that anal about measurement.

Form Rock River Arms website, they state that a 7 inch AR-15 pistol is a total length of 23 inches even.



Since I'm looking to build a rifle I don't believe that the addition of the shoulder stock itself will come out to anything larger then 23 inches but I'm not 100% sure.

So in the end.... I was wondering if some of you guys can whip out the measuring tapes and see what the total length of your 7 inch AR-15s are.

Thanks.....

I hope it fits that would be a great way to carry.

I have a 10.5" that comes in at about 27 3/4". This is with a standard a2 flash hider. This also includes the small length (SMALL) that the stock adds to the buffer tube. Barrels aside you would still have to cut a little but off somewhere. This is assuming their measurements are 100% accurate, and mine are too (:P). I think it could defiantly be done, and is mostly a matter of getting a shorter flash hider. (Flame-throwing is the best part of a SBR anyways). Wait till others chime in and see what their measurements are coming too.

I just ordered one of those bags for my 10.5" bufferless pistol, it's right under 20" (508mm) with a vortex. Wonder how many 5.56 mags it'll hold (without just stuffing them in).

Pistol with custom brake, pre-Vortex:

That seems like the way to go. Buffer-less and since you are wanting a SBR toss a folding stock on there. I think that 5.11 bag has some mollee on the inside.

My 7.5 inch DPMS Kitty Kat measures 24 1/8"

It has a Smith Vortex, and a M1S or PK pistol tube. I compared it along side my carbine, and the two tubes are the same length. I suppose the OAL would be shorter if one had an A2 flash hider, or no FH at all.

Mine's right about 25" with a Spikes buffer tube, Kitty Kat, and KX3.

That's just what I wanted to hear.... thinking of going with either a RRA or a CMMG upper. CMMG makes a 7.3 inch upper.

Olympic Arms makes a 6.5 inch AR-15



Total length is 22.5 inches. I wonder if it's worth a damn ordering their upper. I've heard enough horror stories on their products.

Yeah, I'm an asshole..... on the bright side I'm selling my lower to a friend of mine that's going to build a 9mm AR pistol that he's going to SBR soon.

nice finishing job

It fits:


3mag pouch attached to molle web, single point sling to fit whatever QD mount you've got.
Front pouch fits a 1911 snugly.

OAL with Vortex is right at 20"

Do you think 23.5 would work? I want one but to not want to spend the money to find out it dies not fit.
