The answer is "no". The barrels do not fit each other. I am surprised that no one has tried to take advantage of this to buy MSARs post-ban... I assume this is because they're all too short, and QC...

My point is, that's not shipped. My comparison uses shipped costs because those are the most "real".

And, let me note that there are times when buying brass is called for. On a gun that has an irreplaceable barrel, you don't want to be dumping steel down it by the case load. If you really care about...

Steel cased ammo was also inflated by the panic. A spread of 8-10c is pretty normal.


Can you find cheaper? It's irrelevant what the brand is. I chose the cheapest brass and steel-cased ammo I...

Eh, the Geco stuff is not match ammo. It's very good for cheap brass ammo, but that's about it.

You are making a good point, but perhaps extrapolating too much about how generalized this concern is. AK, Sig 556, etc. barrels are really not that expensive, even including installation. Even the...

Just to settle this, I checked the prices just now:
Cheapest steel-cased shipped: 25.3c/r (Wolf)
Cheapest brass-cased shipped: 35.6c/r (Geco)

That's $412 bucks of savings over 4000 rounds, which...

Anthony Brown was not our previous governor, and thus not the incumbent. Your comparison is flawed.

Disagree. The reason these guys are running unopposed is because no one believes they can mount a credible challenge... and they are probably correct. This state loves its incumbents.

The best bet is to use lacquer-coated Barnaul ammo, as it's fairly well-known to be the best of the Russian ammo, at least for 5.56x45.

Yeah, it blows. But I've been in the NFA game so long that I just live with it. At least I'll get to paw at it / pose for picture once I fill out the form 4 paperwork at Engage.

SBRs have OAL problems that you will need to keep on top of. A stock MP5 is 27" out of the box, IIRC. That means a longer barrel or a longer stock.

The SU-16C has a true folding stock, so you wouldn't want to put a flash hider on it (it does not come with one from the factory). The other variants are "folding receiver", and should be alright.
