Does anyone manufacture the basic birdcage in this length range? Found a 3.5" at Roush Sports (XM177 style). Out of stock and from what I've been reading, they're either belly up or (according to some folks), non-communicative, or not trust worthy. Thanks.

LoL. Pretty much. Guess I can call them Monday regarding does it come in "black oxide" and what's up with this?; "Actual item may have more ports than shown in photos." Pricey but if shipping isn't stupid I might try one. Thanks. Shipping is 7 bucks. Not bad but damn, they're proud of it.

SARCO has one that's 5½" long that is cheaper.

3.5" is about max. Those "gun people" should make adapters, for example, a 1", 2", etc adapter that would thread on to the barrel and then allow assorted muzzle devices to thread on to it. Kind of like one end would be female 1/2-28 and the other end male 1/2-28 in assorted lengths. I need a machine shop with a bed, shower, kitchen.  :D:

What is the reason for one that length?

I'm lightly considering replacing the comp on my pistol and would like to extend out from the handguard a bit more. Similar to the first pic as compared to the second pic.

I looked extensively at muzzle devices trying to decide on how I wanted to extend my 11.5" barrel and the prices found here are pretty much in line.  What I cant believe is that some will top $100!  Crazy.

Oh and I have dealt with Roushe several times without problems.  A lot of things go out of stock but their notification system works good when it does go back into inventory.  The free shipping is nice too.

From the last 3 working my way up.

 

No muffler.

 

That's great to hear about Rousch. I did the notify me thing. Good price too.

 

Yep, some of those prices are insane. Pretty sure I wouldn't even go 40 on an extended flash hider.
