Is 11.5" pretty much the only choice, or has anyone just cut down a longer barrel to a custom length?

Do the 11.5" barrels tend to run best with a carbine gas system vs a midlength?

What I really had in mind was an 11.5" (or a couple inches longer maybe) with a rifle or midlength rail system. Has anyone else done something similar?

The MRP? That's probably out of my price range. Plus, if anything, I thought I might go a little longer than 11.5", rather than shorter.

What about the DPMS 7.5" Kitty?

Model 1 Sales offer 11.5", 10.25" and 7.5" chrome-lined uppers. I'm probably going to go 7.5" just for shits and giggles. Alternatively, you could get a regular 16" and cut to whatever length you want. If you cut down a longer barrel, you may have to monkey with the gas port size though (an adjustable gas tube may be a wise investment).

so I could do an 11.5" barrel with a low profile gas block and still use a midlength rail?

10.5" barrel with 9" mid length will look kinda like that.

Not mine. LMT MRP.
