I just looked it up, pretty cool, I'd do one in .40. I'd have to get one without the 9.5" barrel extension. I'd just add a suppressor to the end of it to get to 16"

Why do that? That barrel extension is already a permanently attached suppressor... You're looking at the baffles. You get your stamp and order the "shroud" and end cap to mount on it and you have an integrally supressed carbine.

I had never heard of this thing until a vendor on MGO posted one for sale in 9MM.

I can't find any real reviews on it. I really want to know how it performs. Accuracy, reliability, etc.

The fixed suppressor internals adding to the barrel length to make it a long gun is an interesting idea, especially in a no-SBR-fun state like MI.

Are there many suppressors that the outer can can be removed separately with the internals still fixed on the barrel? Because now that I'm thinking of it, you could buy something like a pistol length AR upper (or any short barrel) and permanently attach the suppressor making it a legal length rifle.

Yes, sort of...any good suppressor will come apart, in fact I'm in the process of this right now...I purchase two suppressors and I've been waiting about a 8 months now and still don't have my tax stamp...should have 4 more months to go

That's why I like this carbine. It's a Michigan legal SBR that you can still shoot and use while you wait for your stamp for the suppressor.

I'm seriously considering getting rid of my AR15 for one of these in 9MM. Much better option for home defense.

I hope they release the conversion kit for 10MM.

But for it to add to the barrel length it has to be considered permanently attached, so pinned/soldered/welded in place after being threaded on.

After looking at some random suppressors online, its looks like some of the rimfire ones do come apart but most of the larger rifle caliber ones are fully welded, and to clean it you just submerge and let it soak. So I guess you could permanently attach it and stick the thing barrel down in a bucket to clean it out.

I know how it works, and the fully welded ones are the cheaper ones...well not all of them, but it seems the better one come apart. Anywho, there is no real need to clean them anyways. I seen them with 30,000 plus round through them and they still work just fine

The website said Leo/gov/mil only. Not sure if that really means anything as they may have been talking about the really short ones or full auto?
