I've sold my 24" Speedmaster and I'm looking for a replacement.

It'll be used for foxing, some Highpower and some informal PR type shooting.

The Speedmaster was too long and heavy so I'm looking for a shorter tube with a moderator, H-Bar profile, flat top receiver and fixed stock.

I want to do away with the high rail which didnt help my head position but I found the left hand cocking handle very useful from a bipod, do any other uppers other than the SGC have this option?

How much barrel do I really need for distances up to 600?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Cactus arms and DPMS do left side cockers, but right siders can be VERY quick to operate, and do open your options up
How much barrel do I really need for distances up to 600? depends how well you want to do at 600. My 14.5" M4 will knock over the ETRs at 600, and keep in the black at 600. A 20" will do the same with less windage. If you want to shoot HP in service rifle class you will need something that has a standard profile, so that means 20"


Any advice would be much appreciated.

Sorry that wasnt very clear, the Speedmaster has a flip out cocking handle on the left in addition to a roller handle on the right and the standard T bar, obviously the left hand lever is a benefit off a bipod.

Its not a left hand rifle I'm looking for

You could go for a SGC lo-pro upper with an 18" barrel as a good compromise. Throw in a free floating fore-end so you can use the bipod without messing up your zero and you'll be good to go... IM Matt and I'm sure he'll sort you out!
