    I make my own clothing and gear, so those are cutting table self-healing mats commonly found at fabric stores.

    The March would be quite an upgrade. I wonder if someone (maybe March) is making a set of rinds where the front one is larger? I'd find that more comforting than a single ring, even one that was say 40mm long.

    I'm testing a March 1-10 and it's top-notch.

    OP, can share the overall length? Both with and without suppressor. Thanks.

    30" with the can and the PDW Brace collapsed.

    26.75" without the can, collapsed.

    Will be shooting a bunch of 123gr ELD-M through it shortly, in freezing temps.

    OP, I have been looking at building something similar having been inspired by this build.

    I'm curious, since your build is running well, what buffer setup did you choose with the maxim defense brace?

    Hmmmm.

    I have been planning a 6.5 Grendel build.
    But was planning a 18-20".

    Now I am having second thoughts..

    Nice build.

    The short spring and tiny buffer than came with the Maxim. The buffer is 2.9 ounces like a carbine buffer, but it is really short.

    The spring is short, but very stiff and provides very positive return to battery.

    I'm doing another one with the SBA3 brace on a standard carbine RET.

    Just ordered a 12.5 Atheris Rifle 6.5 Grendel Upper to swap with my 19.5" 300 Blk upper on my suppressed SBR. Posted in the wrong forum, but incredibly excited for this to arrive and getting out to the range to try it out based on your experiences.

    LRRPF52, you talked me into it. Iíve started collecting parts from EE to build a 12.5Ē Grendel pistol. Currently I have a lower with a pistol A5 tube, a BA barrel, SLR handguard. Iíll be ordering a Dead Air Nomad for it shortly. I think Iíll put my Leupold 2-7x on it as a placeholder, but in the long run, Iím going to have to score something with a proper BDC reticle. Any recommendations for a SFP ~8x variable for a short, field carried Grendel?

    Not LRRPF52, but I’m planning on picking up the Razor HD 1.5-8 since they’re so cheap right now (discontinued, I believe) and seeing how close the BDC reticle is to my load. I’m shooting 129 gr. Accubond’s at 2100 FPS out of my 12.5”
