View Full Version : Mounting railed forends on AR's - Questions
Is the "Carbine Length" a standardized length for the regular 16" barrels like a Stag rifle has?
If so, then is the "Rifle Length" standard for 20" barrels like my new Armalite upper has?

A 16 inch barrel can be either a carbine length tube or a mid length. If I remember right the carbine length is about 7 inches and the midlength is 9 inches.
Armalite uses a standard rifle length on their 20 inch barrels.
So the carbine is a 7" forearm and the mid length is 9".
Thanks for the information.
