    Suppressing shorties is totally worth it!

    Interested in this conversation as well.

    Plan to Form 1 a lower soon. Seekins SBA15 or Aero M4E1 and do my 1st SBR build. 1st full build, closest otherwise has been a Larue UU kit. Plan to go with a 11.5” build to be used suppressed and unsuppressed.

    Complete 11.5” uppers seem expensive relative to current prices on components. Considered KAC but the fact that I can get a full SR-15 for several hundred bucks less than an 11.5” upper doesn’t make any sense.

    Barrel and handguard are my two biggest unknowns. Any input here? Would like a thin, reasonably priced but quality handguard that takes advantage of the space around the 11.5” barrel. Had a URX 4 on an SR-15 that I liked quite a bit but not sure it’s worth the premium. Mlok, mlok, mlok.

    Planning on going with a Toolcraft NiB BCG, and likely an SLR Adjustable gas block. Have time since the Form 1 isn’t even in the oven yet and prefer to shop sales.

    OP - figured this conversation is related to your post but let me know if you’d like me to start a new thread.

    If going with a 556 sbr i would suggest 12.5in over 11.5 due to the velocity and dwell pick up you get. Hard to beat a properly ported 12.5 carbine sbr.

    With that said however, I am currently working on surpassing the perfection of a 12.5in carbine sbr with a proof of concept of my perfect sbr. It started life as a criterion midlength barrel blank, cut down to 12.5. It was machined to accept a front sight block (love a fsb) and had its gas port opened ever so slightly for 100% suppressed usage. It will get a centurion arms mid length fsp cutout c4 rail and be run on my sionics sbr lower with a5 buffer system. I believe mid length gas systems handle supressors better and beat up on the system less and by having it be a dedicated suppressed upper the gas port was opened up incrementally to give me perfect ejection at 3 o'clock and 100% last round lock back with my surefire mini.

    I don't have one but I have heard good things about the CZ 805. You can get one in a pistol configuration and wait for your stamp. Just something to consider since you mentioned the SCAR.
