    A mid length barrel has a mid length gas tube that goes inside the gas key the correct distance. My point was you are handicapping a gas system thats already gas sensitive by removing 3/8" or half of the 3/4" that the gas tube normally goes inside the gas key.

    Thanks for this info.

    I was going to get one but I don't think I'm going to keep the AR anyway, just don't care for it.

    It appears to be this one, but with a flat top GB/FSB.

    Why don't you like the AR?

    I think it's a cool little platform.

    There are things that frustrate me with it too, but not enough to make me want to abandon the platform... especially now that I have an SBR lower which provides a great deal of flexibility, it's my one rifle that can do it all.

    I can run the following all off one lower.

    .50 Beowulf
    .223/5.56 in 7.5" both SBR and Pistol* /10.5" SBR and Pistol*/16" Std/20" HBAR/24" Varmit
    5.7mm 11" SBR and Pistol*
    7.62x25mm (pending delivery)

    I can't do this with any other platform. I find attractive about the platform and I think this is what keeps me in the AR platform...

    Mark

    * - Yes, I know that an SBR is still an SBR even if it looks like a pistol and that you cannot make a pistol out of a rifle receiver. I wouldn't do that.

    I know what you meant. I was trying to say that the recoil/pressure would be like that of a mid length, because only so much of the gas tube is in the key.

    The concept of it is a great idea, as you mentioned it's so modular. Pop out a couple pins and change the upper to have a completely different firearm, whether it's a different caliber or for different purposes, self defense, range or just plinking fun.
    I've tried quite a few different setups too (it's nice having friends at the range) and it just isn't that appealing to me.

    They probably use a cut down rifle or midi gas tube. I've also seen extra long gas tubes available that are made to be cut to length for custom applications. So I'm sure that the tube is engaging the key fully. The only thing that makes these a blem is that you can not use a regular forearm.
