Get the gun, register, get the barrel. You get more trigger time doing this, rather than climbing the walls waiting for your forms with nothing to do
A local guy chops barrels for $90, which for sure is cheaper than a $300 SBR barrel. ADCO does a great job of chopping barrels.Good point. Any idea if it is cheaper to have a local smith chop the 16" barrel down to 11 inches than paying the 0 or whatever for the additional barrel from Robinson?
.It would be best to use the heavy barrel to sbr correct? More meat for rethread/crown or whatever?
I'd like to get an sbr ~10.5-10.75"
As far as atf procedure goes, do you have to have your forms and stamp+receiver ingraved before you even take possession of the short barrel?
Great question... the answer is that I can't find any significant muzzle rise with this gun. I'm a whimpy shooter, meaning I don't like any unecessary muzzle rise, whip, or recoil. I can handle it, but I prefer it not be there. The XCR just doesn't have much rise. And I doubt the increase in weight for carrying the gun is worth a very minimal decrease in muzzle rise. If anything there are several new muzzle breaks available now. And the new designs cut down on the noise that these breaks are notorious for. My buddy with the 14.5" XCR has a break on his and it's not obnoxious at all. And it stays right on target all the time.Prizm,
How much does the muzzle rise on each shot of your SBR? I'm wondering if the heavy barrel might give a slight advantage in getting quicker follow up shots with the added weight muting that muzzle hop.
