Nice write up...but I have a question about that little blurb on the pistols.

It didn't really talk about muzzle flash....

I saw a pic on Gunblast that looked like a roman candle...in the daytime.

Is that an inevitable feature of the 7" barrel?

I have not shot it, but based on similar weapons, like the DPMS Kitty Kat, my guess is that muzzle flash is severe. See how much flash you get off a 16-inch carbine without one of those evil flash hiders? Chop another nine inches off the tube and you can well imagine the result.

I imagine the comp just makes it worse....

Without it at least the flames would mostly go forward rather than up in front of the sights.

Went to a private but rather large MG shoot in Indiana last November, I brought along my new Carbon 15 pistol to try for the first time, I was a little embarrased to even take it out of the case and shoot next to a GE Minigun and a host of others. When I fired the first few rounds everybody looked over to see what the heck was making that loud report and flash, it was really funny.

I was at a range once when a fellow a few lanes down started plinking with one of these things.

The muzzle flash is quite impressive! :eek:

That's half the fun of the short barrels....if worse comes to worse just suppress it...
