Well obviously it mattered to me. I was curious why he did it. Wasn't criticizing him, was asking a simple question.Does it really matter? Its his gun....not yours.
I wanted to go as short as possible without having to bow down to the ATF and pay more taxes. If I can get it approved for duty use, I'll be carrying it as a patrol rifle, so 16" overall is better than 18" with a loud ass brake. I'll also be running an AAC suppressor and wanted to mount to their brake rather than the flashhider.
