Extruding .22 Barrel Length on AR Platform?
I understand the .22 barrels are set further back into the receiver then a traditional AR15 5.56/.223 barrel so I'm trying to figure out how much further back for the purpose of deciding on a rail.
Redtazdog has a guide on rails and barrel lengths
The muzzle threads will be at the end of a hand guard with
5.5" barrel and a 4.25 hand guard
8.25" barrel and a 7" hand guard
10.25" barrel and a 9" hand guard
13.25" barrel and a 12" hand guard
add .500 for exposed threads ouside of the hand guard if needed.
Some hand guards are .25 to .50 longer, add barrel length to get the look you like.
For a 5" suppressor to be exposed aprox 1" outside of a hand guard you will need.
4.5" barrel and a 7' hand guard
6.5" barrel and a 9" hand guard
9.5" barrel and a 12" hand guard
Some hand guards are .25 to .50 longer, add barrel length to match if needed.
Excellent, thanks for the response fellas!
