    I am trying to put together a 300, but can't seem to find the barrel I want, other than a $500 Noveske. I really want a 13.7" barrel with a pistol length gas system. Anyone have a lead for me?

    I haven't seen anywhere. Everything for .300 BLK seems to be either 16" or for pistol/SBR they're 9"/10"/12". I might have seen 14.5" at some point in the past but I don't believe I've ever seen a 13.7" in any caliber. Are you sure it exists? Seems too long for a pistol build, too close to rifle length to be worth it for SBR, and too short to bring over 16" with a muzzle device to make it a legal rifle. Are you trying to build a rifle, a pistol, or an SBR? If it's pistol or SBR, you might as well go 12". It's only 1.5" shorter than what you're looking for and more importantly it's readily available.

    I'm actually not sure it exists. Plan was to pin a KX3 on it to get 16" out of a 13.7. I thought I had seen a Noveske in that length, but who knows. Just didn't feel like paying $500+ for a name that isn't worth it anymore.

    Don't blame you. I just checked and Palmetto actually has that 12" barrel by itself in stock right now for $200 ($250 but they have 20% off right now). But it sounds like you are actually wanting a rifle build. Not sure why there aren't any in 14.5/14.7/whatever though. It's a popular length for 5.56. Especially with all the people wanting to put a supressor on .300 BLK and keep overall lenght down. Or maybe everybody that gets a can goes ahead and SBR it while their at it?

    Yes, I want a rifle so I can hunt with it. Yes, I know the 6.5 & 6.8 are "better", but if I need longer range, I have other guns for that.

    Does anyone know if they count the barrel extension as barrel length, because a 12.5" + a 3.28" KX3= 1/4" too short...

    If it is pinned and welded then it is considered part of the barrel.
