16" suppressed for CQB. It looks like a great setup, could also easily do duty for short range hog hunting and self defense use.

I'm looking forward to a range report as well, I wonder which ammo it will like.

I'm curious about that muzzle brake you have. I would think a fixed 4 power illuminated scope is probably the best way to go.
Thanks for jumping in Josh. I have a Leupold 1.25 - 4 VX-R Patrol all ready to go. Same type scope I put on the .450 Bushmaster.

Excellent Art! I'm sure you'll have it together in no time. Can't wait to see the rifle. I see you have a unitized GC. Very cool!! I was shooting surplus ammo with those results.

Yep, I think it's going to be a winner. Not much room for barrel whip to take place. Group you shot was darn good for surplus.
I have modified gas plugs on the way. Thanks for the heads up.

You're welcome!
FWIW, I've always been a fan of the 18.5 medium weight barrel. The balance is better and can still use traditional parts.

What's your opinion of the 16" seeing you have worked with them?

It's a novelty, but to each their own. It limits the .308 cartridge. At 300, it works, but don't have high expectations, especially with a standard trigger. Would be awesome if they chambered these in 7.62x39. I asked about it at one point.
I would liked to have seen the 5/8 -24 thread on the 18.5 and 19.25 barrels ad options too.

Do either one of you guys know if this Barrel will work with the ultimak Scout rail? This would solve my adapter problem on the end of my 18.5.

That is just awesome. I hope they make an 18in version that would be the best of all worlds. You are gonna enjoy that VG6 brake

@nf1e ... any idea if the gas port size is smaller than typical ?

Or did you happen to measure it ?

And your 16" looks great. Thank You for sharing .

If this set up works out well on this standard receiver, I am thinking of doing one just like it on an XM21.

Whatta Hobby!

Did not measure the gas port.
Now, if something doesn't work, I might.
I have used quite a few products from Bula Defense Systems over the years and have always been pleased.
