    I was inquiring When the 11.5 suppressed only barrels would be available and what the damn gas port size was and like most companies , they won’t say/or even reply and think it’s a secret or something.. lol
    Anyone can measure…ahhh… I just wanted to know before I made a decision.

    Curious though, when u got a minute and could maybe measure the gas port on the 12.5?

    Got the last of my parts a few days ago and assembled the upper. Took it to the range yesterday, did a function test, barrel break in and zeroed in the Peak iron sights.
    Went really good, she is smooth and fast. I am impressed with the Peak sights, they are real fast to acquire and work great on this build. The Triarc barrel liked all the ammo I threw at it, impressive groups on a brand new barrel. Wolf gold for the break in and function test. 75g gold dots and 62g TBBC for zeroing. I was suprised that the POI was pretty negliable between the 75g and 62g which is great because those are my two HD rounds. The 75g GD's are pretty damn accurate with 1.5" groups at 50 yards on iron sights. That round was specifically made for shorter barrels IIRC. Double dimpled the gas block and will pin it once I have more rounds down the pipe. Will try to get some pics posted later. Rifle weighs in at 4.5lbs... Not going to use an optic on this rifle and pretty sure this will be my new HD rifle.

    Man, I'd sure want an HWS or RDS on anything I considered a HD rifle. Such a great capability that improves performance, especially in certain lighting situations.

    This sounds awesome. Maybe I missed it but do you have a build thread on this or pics?

    @ BU I dont disagree, but I have red dots on 3 other rifles (T2's) and optics on most of the other rifles. Honestly, I wanted to keep it simple on this build and with the PEAK sights I can acquire targets real fast. I swept the house with the new rifle and she is fast and light, no issues. A no optic scenario can be argued for that its just one less variable to deal with in a high stress situation, grab and go, rounds down range... If I ever do change my mind I can pull a T2 off the 10.5"


    @ Aragorn- Nah, no thread on it and pics are coming. Since Mustang named this thread 12.5" talk I figured I would just stay with the theme. You guys gave me the push to get this thing done!

    Nice, 4.5 lbs is light.

    I’d second a rds, but to each his own.

    I won’t be able to get my project together for a while but am planning a lpvo for it.

    Looks good! I’ll be adding my light set up once I get home from my rotation tomorrow. I’ll have to add some new pics.
