    Well I don't know what I'd be compensating for....I'm a 100lb chick with more than adequate rack LOL.
    Its not true without pictures

    Back on topic
    Here are some pics that might help. An AAC M4-2000 adds 5.1". The SBR is a a Noveske 10.5 with SB and the top rifle is a Shrubmaster carbine 16 with them correctly lined up. The tape measure and pencil are close to accurate, but maybe a little off due to angles of camera. It should give you and idea of what the difference in length is and with a M4-2000. I have an M4-2000, but its hunting right now on a 14.5, so can't photograph it right now Good luck let us know what you choose

    I am glad someone else recommended this. I have the 16" SR15 and have no complaints on reliability. So much in fact that I plan to get the SBR, 11.5" version to add to my stable. Completely ambidextrous lower, nice rail with front and rear BUIS standard.

    Not being sarcastic, genuinely curious.
    Actually you may be correct. Centurion advertises theirs are the "lightest and most rigid" that clamp to a standard nut.

    Cent. 10.7 w/screws
    Alpha 8.6 no mention of screws -- also not sure but I guess you need to add sling mounts and the Cent has them built in.

    It's not completely ambidextrous.

    OP - you're awesome! Guns and horses...bravo!

    I'd definitely lean towards a longer barrel length. MK18-type SBRs are awesome, but for an all-purpose SBR I like longer barrels for reasons already mentioned.

    Here's my 12" SBR with a 556-212 next to a 16" Recce. Around same length with can on. Still lightweight, short enough, decent suppression, and no flash. Still under 10lbs loaded.


    I'm 6'1 and 190lbs and it feels real small to me. My wife's your size and has no problems handling it either.


    And pretty accurate at distance, with the detachable 3x

    What about the lower is not completely ambi? Ambi selector, mag release and bolt release. You know something I don't?

    Think about it, chief.

    What do you do when you clear your weapon?

    OP,
    I went with a 11.5 BCM ss. Works great so far, only a few hundred rounds. All research and shooting other sbr's led me to this as the sweet spot for short and suppressed. Pretty damn accurate too. Gonna stretch it this weekend and see...

    well I'm not trying to get too OT but there may be photo evidence of in my user profile photos.......

    anyway I think I have decided on 11.5, I just now need to come up with the best and lightest choices for the rest of the upper...

    since this is my first build and my first SBR I'm wanting to do it right...as far as choosing the BCG, buffer system, charging handle, etc, I'm trying to figure out....any advice is welcome!
