I didnt recognize the new profile pic. How are you doing?

Have you already purchased the barrel?

I looked back over the links you provided. I think the Model1 barrel is a decent option for your stated prupose.

I'm doing great thanks You? Still pleased with the equipment I bought from you, I wish I could use it more, But with the nice weather on its way I am sure to.
I don't have a barrel yet, I am looking around for a decent 16" mid length barrel, Most tend to be carbine.
I appreciate the help, I know Model 1 isn't anywhere near top tier, But its a start.
I just don't think it would be advisable for an 8 year old to have a carbine from what I have read, I would like it to be an enjoyable experience.
So, I guess the search continues...

I'm doing well. Keeping busy, unfortunately lol.

If you think about it look at all the photos from past conflicts. You'll see all sorts of children w/ carbine length DI systems. I think its totally doable if its something you're wanting. If you need to you can add a heavier buffer to smooth things out.

Whats your budget? I can do a little searching around as well.

Good to hear you are well and busy, Even if work isn't fun.
No real budget, But I don't want to exceed my other two, I think if I can get a barrel, and its necessary equipment for under $300, I will be in good shape, But its somewhat flexible.

I just ordered a 16" Carbine barrel form GunKings, They were the only one I could find selling a GMR barrel, Everything else is coming via Midway, I hope to have everything by mid week.
Once I get all the parts together and try it out I will see about a heavier buffer, my son may not even care, Thinking about it he loved shooting my old AK.

Looks like you're on your way, Vit... hope your third build goes well!

I've got to steel myself looking at this thread. Y'see, I've only got two!

I've recently built an AR using the SAME components that you have and with a government profile carbine, it shot GREAT and I didn't even mess with the buffer. The M4 profile is proportioned that way to add weight/control. In the rare case that it is too snappy, slap an H or H2 buffer in there and you're back in business, however, I'll be the first one to admit when asked that the Mid-length is the best compromise.
