I would guess like 7 1/2 inch on the barrel.

Hell long range shooting here is 25 feet, once you step into the swamp.
Plus when we were in Nam. All the Officers and F.O.s had them.
Us low life Grunts could not get them.
Everybody wanted one.
My Dustoff Bro and his crew swiped 3 from some Officers.
They made an announcment in their camp.
"Everyone will stand naked in front of their barracks till we find them. Now if they just happen to show up back in the chopper they came from, everything will be just fine."
Hour later, they were back where they came from. :)
That turned out nice Jack.
People need good 5.45 AR barrels!!!
Very Nice Bluejack I'd like to do one up too but just dont want to get into the SBR paperwork bs and extra expense, almost rather go a piston system and pistol build to avoid the paperwork/scrutinity from BATFE. But that sure is neat,,, I LIKE IT!! Just get a burnning permit in hand before ya shoot it, don't want to piss off Smokey The Bear ya know!! I'll bet that will beller some!! My 16" bushy "flames on" pretty good so I could just imagine what that one will do,,, Wow Hows about some sunset pics shooting it??
iv always wanted to build a 5.45 AR... ammo's just so easy to come by now!
sounds like everyone's thirsty for details, maybe bluejack can throw up a list?
im personally interested in what he finds quality to be, because iv seen his preferences on other things i know more about.
this is build on spike 5.45 AR bolt and was use one of my 5.45 AR barrel I am testing on,

Not going to come near the long guns, but they can reach out and touch things.
Perfect swamp gun... :)
