Long Time Lurker here! Guys I am putting together an AR10 I would like to run with a 18 inch barrel!For mid range shooting and close quarters. I have my bolt gun for distance! I was wondering if any one had any input on gas system length and reliability. And I will be running a suppressor if that is of any consequence. Any input will be appreciated!
Thanks You in advance!

Re: AR-10 Barrles

Really that's what i was thinking originally. The reason I ask is that is that Noveske uses the carbine length gas system. And everyone speaks highly of them! I was going to use them but the wait now and my funding has made me just buy peaces when i can!

Re: AR-10 Barrles

I would have to recommend the carbine gas system. There is a reason Noveske has such a following. Armalite themselves will recommend Noveske for any custom build. Since you are considering a suppressor in the future, make sure to either get the SASS gas system from Armalite or the Switch Block from Noveske. I am also going to recommend getting the muzzle brake from http://www.opsinc.us this way you are planning ahead for your can.

    AFAIK - There is no AR-10 switch block, yet.

Although I would love and Ops Inc Suppressor! haha If u Know any where i could get a custom Muzzle break made with ops inc break and yhm threads? Ill look into the gas system!

    Guys, I really appreciate the input!

    Re: AR-10 Barrles

    Ok Guys one more question! Do u have any idea where i could order an 18 inch barrel with a carbine length gas system other than Noveske? I expect a long wait and that is fine!

    I passed your email over to Archie. He will probably catch up with you this weekend... Now to answer your barrel question... Get in touch with these guys www.ar-10-rifles.com They will make what you want in less time than if you were to order from most vendors.
