    A few reasons. One, I don’t know anybody locally I could trust to do it, and I don’t wanna send it off somewhere to have it done. And I wanna get suppressors eventually and don’t wanna be tied to one flash hider

    The trick is to pick a mounting system you want to commit to, and use them across the board. I hear lots of good stuff about KEYMO, I'm a YHM guy myself. 14.5 P+W with a brake, Kurz adapter, and 5.56 K can is a shorty combo that's not SBR, and relatively flickable.

    When I was researching and comparing surpressors the ones that really stuck with me were the dead air ones. But I could change my mind between purchases lol

    Then you just answered your original question, get a SBR if you plan on getting a suppressor. And yes, Dead Air is the way to go.

    My buddy has the dead air nomad and it’s top notch. That’s what I’ll be doing when I’m done saving.

    I like my SBR, and yes waiting for the tax stamp sucks. The 16" would remove that requirement, and will definitely be my next build.

    I've been lucky enough to go TDY there, but wasn't stationed there.

    I’m looking to go retro with one of my rifles. If anyone has any round handguards for a carbine laying around, please let me know! There should be plenty, as this is the first thing people yank off when they get an AR!

    Let me double check when I get home. There’s another guy that messaged me about some Colt ones. I gotta verify they are for a carbine.

    I have no clue. On their order page for the UU, you can only order it in one configuration and one color, but you can pick barrel length. I just ordered it as it was sold. Maybe they have a few made up already?

    Honestly, I was expecting a 6 month wait, not next day shipping. Lol
