After seeing this thread by MSTN... ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=264654
I was wondering......
If I had a 16" barrel cut down - and permanently attached a noveske/krink brake to keep it 16" legal,
what freefloat could I use to minimize the amount of barrel that shows?
Would a 12" FF look good?, Would it be better to use a 2 piece FF ?
Well , I would want it to look nice and not cobbled up.
But MAINLY I want the shortest NON NFA barrel I can get - and the Noveske/Krink brake
to keep the Muzzle Blast away from MY ears.
After i got the info I was thinking of asking if your shop could do the work
Now THAT'S customer service!
What about a 14.5" barrel and the muzzle device of your choosing (vortex, YHM, etc.) with a LaRue 13.2" forend on it? If my math is correct (and it seldom is) there's not going to be much barrel at all showing that way. If a 9.0 leaves only muzzle device showing on a 10.5" barrel, then a 13.2" should do the same with a 14.7" barrel.
The basic ingredients, IIRC...
Noveske 13.6" "Infidel" barrel
LaRue 13.2 FF HG
LaRue Low Profile Gasblock
Add a gastube of your choice, pin and weld the KX3, and work from there.
