Oh well... Perhaps one day, Accuracy Systems or Accuracy Speaks or another gunsmith will make aftermarket supplies such as barrels, sights, compensators, etc.

Thank you for your email.

There are no plans for any longer barrels at this time.

All three versions of the SU-16 are now shipping. However, some of
the accessories that were displayed at the Shot Show will not be available
for approx. 2-3 months.

Have a great day!

I don't think we need a longer barrel. We need the SU16C barrel on the SU16A.

I guess we can buy one of those and install.

Just as I suspected.

The barrels can be changed according to the link I posted from ktog.org. You have to heat the base of the barrel as it's loctited down to a threaded barrel extension.

Also the B model has a not so great pencil barrel.

This particular SU16 hasn't been finished though. Time will tell.

Some good news. If you go over to ktog.org there is a guy already converting his SU16 to 6.8x43mm with the addition of a new barrel. He goes over some of the parts with pics. Really interesting stuff. There is hope that some of us would be able to do this with a .223 barrel and compensator of choice.

I think I want me one of those A models now.
