    I did a search, but, couldn't find anything on here about it. I've been looking on KTOG at some other guys PLR SBRs and it seems like a simple way to get into a 5.56 SBR platform. I've been doing the math and it can be done for around $800 with new equipment including the $200 fee for the BATF.

    So, what are some of ya'lls thoughts? Seem like a good way to get into a 5.56 SBR or is there a more cost-effecient way?

    ETA some pictures of what I'm planning the finished product to look like. The following photos come from a user known as Badman400 on the KTOG site.

    As a compact, light-duty weapon.... seems pretty neat. :righton:

    I fell in LOVE with this one BUT I am going to do one on an SU16 platform. I'll have to cut the barrel down and thread it for a flash suppressor until I can get the paperwork for a suppressor for it. :righton:
