I believe it is more like 10" in the 551 micro. Mg34_Dan can you confirm the barrel length?

Since the original pictures were taken, the front sight base assembly has been attached. I just measured everything and it looks like the barrel length, tip to a$$ is exactly 11". Ain't that interesting?





Oh, even though it appears that the flash hider is a separate assembly, it is not. As with the 500 and 551, it is machined on the barrel. I have no idea why the barrel immediately behind the flash hider is shiny. That's the way I got it. I didn't touch or play with it.
