The MK16 SCAR has the 10.5", the MK17 has the 13". No 10.5" .308 barrels in the Teams. Unless it was bought by a guy out-of-pocket, and those guys get stingy on that stuff!
If only BM would follow suit and hold true on the 600~ price range for barrels
Lord, make me fast and accurate, let my aim be true and my hand faster than those that who would seek to destroy me. Grant me victory over my foes and those that wish to do harm to me and mine, and Lord if today is truly the day you call me home, let me die in a pile of empty brass.

Too be fair those are MSRP prices. Ive seen parts and stuff cost that much but street prices especially with good contacts will be much lower. So I'm glad. But what about ACR barrels? I never really planned on SBR'ing my 2 SCAR's will maybe the 16s but my 17s nah. .308? 16ins is my min for that cal. And always worried about stripping my torx screws on the SCAR's hence why I bought a bunch of em and torquing while making sure the barrel is straight on a big hassle to me as my 17 was off hence the whine etc. Not to mention I already own over 10 SBR's (AR, AK's, MP5 clones etc) not including several uppers. So for the FN probably gonna get the 10in or 10.5 or whatever it is. But for the ACR definite 10 but man I'm getting a Tavor IDF model with 16.5 thru my Class 3 guy and another thru Cope's long wait list but its overall length is shorter than my Daniel Defense MK18 or around 26.3 inches according to the IWI rep. So the Tavor kinda makes all my 5.56 SBR's over 10in redundant now.
