A piston still uses gas to operate. As far as weight piston systems are heavier than DI. As far as I know you can not cut it down yourself. A sbr is class 3 and so is a suppressor so your looking at $400 in tax stamps.

Um, I'd probably look at stainless not chrome-lined. This is precision build, and your probably not gonna shoot 1k+ rounds a year. If you are worried about longevity, break it in then break it down and get it melonited. Though this takes time, at least you get to shoot your barrel, and see if its a keeper. Meloniting it should triple or even quintuple your barrels life expectancy at no expense to accuracy.

Geissele SSA-E or SDE are nice for target triggers. If you want adjustable they make one too. I've heard lots of good stuff about AR Gold, Wilson Combat, and Timney too.

Class III, so not worried about that. I know this uses gas, it just seems more efficient. Gases need not expand as much to cycle a bolt vs a greater potential for failure in gas impingement.

I don't think we can give you a POU for your rifle, that's something you need to decide on your design phase. Light quick to the ready PDW style or long heavy accurate SASS is all on you.

That's a PSG-1 Sniper rifle style grip and that's a like PRS magpul buttstock on the end there. You can find both of those widely available on the internet in various places. The grip is nice for a sniper rifle that you will be sitting behind a lot as it's fat lower end is to rest your hand on without losing trigger position, but it's heavy and difficult to pocket easily if you're going to ready the rifle from a sling.
