    Beautiful. Mine is for an MPX as well. Just waiting on 2 stamps :(
    How does it sound? Did you chop the barrel or is that still 8"?

    Barrel is 4.7". I'm waiting on stamps also. I should have them in a few weeks. I took it by my dealer to test fit the suppressor/barrel/rail combination.

    Oh Nice!

    I have been thinking this whole time that I was going to chop it to 4.5-5". But then I was thinking that I may want to shoot it unsuppressed. Any harm in shooting it unsuppressed with the barrel chopped in this configuration? I was thinking my hand might be out in front of the barrel? Not sure?

    Also when the SBR stamp comes in I am going to order the aftermarket stock from safe harbor firearms. It looks pretty sweet, not sure if you have seen that one.

    I would love to build a 9mm AR pistol someday as well. Then I could use the can on it as well as in my p226.

    Of course I would have to sbr it someday as well!!! Lol

    That was my concern also. There are several things you can do to bring the muzzle out past the end of the handguard. I'm running the 3-lug adapter which adds an inch by itself to the barrel length. I have been shooting it with the 3-lug mount for the suppressor which adds another 1/2'. This results in it being 3/4" behind the rail. I have not experience any issues with the gas hitting my one finger that is partially exposed (the gas would have to come through the keymod holes). I also have a 3-lug muzzle device that will bring it past the handguard. I don't really like it because: A) manual lock instead of a spring lock. Although that big a deal on the MPX since you can pull the hinge pin and slide the handguard forward. B) It is heavy. It weighs 14oz which makes the MPX feel out of balance to me. Our Omega9K will be closer to 9oz. I'm thinking about putting it in a lathe and cutting some weight out of the inside of it. I have an second 3-lug mount that I have sent to a machine shop. He is going to thread a piece of aluminum tubing to fit the mount. I think it will work much better!

    I'll upload some photos.

    Awesome! Thanks for the detailed response. I didn't realize there were other 3lug devices out there. I'll have to look into some options as I really like your setup. If you don't mind I ask where did you get the barrel chopped?

    Taylor Pickerell of Ferrara Firearms in Baton Rouge did it. taylorpickerell@yahoo.com

    Another option is a fake suppressor. http://www.titleiiarms.com/3_Lug_Fat.html http://www.titleiiarms.com/Twist_Lock_6_or_8_in.html
    If the one I'm having built does not work out, I think I'll try to get TitleIIarms to build me one in a custom length.
