After speaking with the guys at American spirt arms I am not sure if my 11.5" barrel w/ a 5.5 flashhider can except a 5.56 round. My buddy with his American spirt M-4 has the same question about his setup. Does anyone know if we can get away with using 5.56 surplus ammo though these uppers?

I don't know why not. Is the chamber a "match" chamber?

I don't have any idea why a 11.5" barrel won't be able to shoot 5.56 surplus.

Please be more specific.

All ASA barrels have .223 SAAMI chambers. None are chrome lined either. Shooting 5.56 ammo may cause some problems with reliability.
