I think you should do the math.

10.5 barrel + 5.5 hider = 15.5 overall (approx).

Remember about .600 of the barrel screws into the hider reducing the overall measurements.

Whoops!

Must be why they make 11.5 inch barrels (like on my Bushmaster).

Seriously, know of any 6.5 " flash-hiders (with or without holes) for the OP ?

(Or, is 5.5 the length after mounted - makers already "did the math" ?)

Other than making one, not really. I ran into the same issue on my LMT MRP piston upper. It was 10.5 so I wound up making a new 14.5 barrel for it, it just seemed a waste to use it on a pistol build.

Duct Tape!

There are two tools that will fix anything - Duct tape and WD-40. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and it shouldn't, use the Duct tape.

But, remember, Duct tape has a light side and a dark side. Used correctly it can save the world, but used incorrectly it can stick your cat to the wall.
