    Thanks to you and Unobtanium!

    Jesus, I really need to pay attention to this forum more! Interrogative - can I have my username changed?

    @ssb - You made a good choice. The fellas at SOLGW do it right, and you picked a really good barrel length. I am unaware what the port is set to in their upper - anyone happen to know?

    Anyways, yes, a 12.5" barrel with a SF mini is a BALLER good setup. Just long enough to really take advantage of 5.56 velocity gain, enough dwell time to function in a wide range of temperatures/altitudes with a wider range of loads, same OAL as a Mk18 or other 10" 5.56 while suppressed, enough barrel and suppressor to keep muzzle flash down, far closer to hearing safe than a 10" gun, slower carrier speeds.... for a full time suppressed gun it makes a whole lot of sense.

    The Wedge system is extremely strong mechanically, and combined with that barrel nut yields excellent rigidity. I do not know if the 7075-T6 variant of that rail is provided yet or not, of which I have a preference for, but you should be fine with that rail. You may see a touch more deflection under load if using a VIS/IR laser, but it will still be better than many of it's competitors.

    Myself, I am holding out for the third installment of the HDSI rail series, and using it on a 14.5" GP gun and pushing my current P-LOK rail over to a 16" Recce rifle for the time being.

    These days no longer will state if a system is 'the best' until I see every system and test it empirically (unlikely). That and it's hard to say when different guns are built for different missions or uses.
