    SCAR 17s Barrels

    Are OEM barrels available for the SCAR 17?
    I am looking at cost to cut a factory 16" barrel down and permanently attach a FH.
    I am figuring the barrel could go down to about 14.5".

    Thanks
    Pat

    just add an AAC miter, makes it look short and you dont kill the val.

    Hi- sgt stryker has barrels on order from fnh. Not sure when they will be in but he is taking deposits on all the sizes. You would have to message or email him to get the specifics. All i can tell you is that his products are real and his service is exceptional.

    Why go through all that expense and effort for 1.5" less barrel length?

    I agree ^^^^ and if you need to go down buy the factory 13" setup from SGTSTRYKER.

    how much length does the MITER mount add to the barrel? Just thinking maybe a 13" barrel with a pinned MITER might equal 16".

    If you've never had a pinned 14.5 I think you'll spend a lot of money and be disappointed. My first ar is a pinned 14.5", I can't really tell the difference between it and the 16"ers I've bought since.

    It's your gun though so you know what you need better than I do.

    I've got a second SCAR 17 coming in next week. I'll be getting the 20" barrel for it as soon as Sgt.has them in. At that point I'll put the unfired 16" one up for sale.

    Having a spare barrel would be nice.
    At this time I am not looking to NFA the weapon (a 13" barrel would require a stamp or a 3" flash suppressor and a new sound suppressor = $1500 plus plus 6 months plus the cost of the barrel).
    When a suppressor is mounted on a SCAR it adds about 7". Making it even 1.5" shorter would be nice but isn't a SCAR barrel 16.5" so you may gain almost 2" of length back.

    I have a freind that shortened his factory barrel and pinned the flashider and he does not seem to give up anything in accuracy. He plans to eventually NFA the gun (if it has not been already) and either further shorten his barrel or get a 13" factory barrel. He is the same one that has over 7k rounds of TULA through his gun so a new barrel may be in order


    I am just checking availability and pricing the new barrel at this time to see what sort of coin will be involved. I understand that the gas port has to be changed if the barrel is trimmed as well as the cost to cut and thread the barrel so it is not a cheap proposition even after the aquisition of the barrel.
