So I woke up this morning and looked at my 10.5" and my 16" ARs. Yes there's a 5.5" difference in barrel length, but that's really shorter than the length of my hand. Looking back at it, was that small difference in length worth $200 and 3 months of waiting? I'm thinking the only reason to SBR now would be for suppressed use because how much size and weight it adds to the end of the rifle. In the future, a 14.5" + 1.6" FH (Vortex or BC 1.5) is probably the way to go. Which is kind of why I want to go down to 7.5" SBR; if you're gonna SBR, go realllllly short.
