    does anyone know where to find one or if they make these in sbr or pistol form. thanks

    edit: wanting something that is not super picky on ammo and will work well with or without a suppressor. i already use black dog mags so something compatible would be nice. and the sun the moon and all the stars too

    I cut down my 16" dedicated .22lr to 8". Mostly run it with a suppressor.

    they're everywhere, well I should say multiple companies make em. I'd give redtazdog a PM and see what he has available.

    Dang phone
    *great guy and knows his stuff.

    I've spoken to him on a few occasions and he refuses to cut corners and has built some amazing uppers. Search his posts under his profile for an idea.

    Any thoughts on how it compares to the Clint Beyers barrel? Accuracy? Thanks!

    I have no direct comparison but I'll say this- Red refused to do a collar without knowing/having the mating piece to ensure the best fit possible(There was a lil more to it but that's cliff note version). So he take's things serious and does what he can to ensure the best end result.

    Clint makes good barrels too as I have a couple and I'm the person that pushed him to start making barrels for the AR's
    We have been friends for a few years or more.
    As far as accuracy between both, they are about the same as we both use a better chamber than most others for the
    Ar 22 barrels.
    Accuracy with any 22 can change with the brand of ammo used and each barrel has its own taste for ammo so
    to get the best accuracy its best to try several brands to see what your barrel likes best.
