Somewhat new but I have joined the scar club, by trading in My Tavor. One of My best decisions ever, not to say the Tavor was bad, it's just that it's not a scar 17s.

After seeing the sbr versions I fell in love. I found a local place that professionally sbrs all rifles and they have done many scars before, they offer a 17s for around $250 in cqc 13inch or new law enforcement 10.1 inch. Can anyone convince me to keep the standard 16.5, or any pros and cons. Much appreciated fellow gun owners.

So with the 10.1 inch barrel would sound be the major drawback, because At the range with the 16 inch, that thing is Loud. Really I'm looking At performance can you still At least get out to 400-500 yards with it. Also thinking about getting a suppressor for it. No paperwork needed in the state of Wisconsin for silencers.

Really. Only if you don't mind jail and big fun fines.

As far as I know most silencer companies only rate their 308 cans down to a 12" Barrel

Maybe it was already implied but, A BATF tax stamp is also necessary before possessing all the components to assemble a SBR or possessing a SBR as i understand it.
That is the normal rule of thumb. The BATFE can consider it constructive intent if you have all the pieces parts in the same location but don't have the approved form. It's a safe rule that if you own all the needed pieces, keep the barrel at a different location till your paperwork comes in. Not that the ATF typically has any clue at all what you have but better safe than sorry.

Incorrect. Recently AAC has come out and said there original 12.5" rating on the SDN-6 for .308 was incorrect. They claim that the marketing personnel didn't get the information from the engineers and I believe it's 16" IIRC. You can email them and get the information yourself, I did and wasn't happy that it's not actually rated for 12.5" barrel for a .308. The gentlemen I spoke with did lead me to believe it would be repaired if damaged but that it's no longer rated for that short of barrel. It is rated down to 10" on 5.56 though.
I'd love to get a barrel assembly that's 10.5" for my 17. My SDN6 is rated for 10" barrels. If you go that route, let us know how it turns out.

If one is going to attach a can to it would you recommend throwing in a surefire muzzle brake instead?
I think this is all preference. I have an armorer where I work. He guides my bad decisions, and encourages me to make informed decisions. I prefer not to use a MB as people are usually shooting and communicating around me. Even with double ears, your team, will scatter as the percussion is too much for me. Besides I have a form4 in for a SF SOCOM RC. I plan on shooting suppressed around 75 percent of the time. Also I try to be as range friendly as possible.

Well whatever you get it is your can and you can do whatever you want with it but as far as I know there's 3 problems with running your can on a shorter barrel than it's rated for.
1. Your warranty will be voided
2. Shorter barrels mean more unburned gasses burning inside the can causing premature baffle erosion
3. Worst case scenario would be an over pressure situation where the can simply can't contain the extra pressure from the expanding gasses and explodes.

I'm not an expert on the subject by any means, just relaying some info I've read on other sites.
Jeremy from silencer shop would probably know if anyone makes a can that's rated for a 10" 308.
