SSD recently had an article highlighting some of the initial results from Crane on the side-by-side testing of carbine gas systems vs mid length gas systems.
The results are in favor of the midlength system.
I am a fan of the Colt Combat Unit carbine (LE6960-CCU) and this adds to that impression.
I picked up a Colt 6960-CCU last year. It’s my go to rifle and can’t say enough positive things about it.
This is just another example of the government taking years to confirm what the private sector has know for a long Long time. Midlength has been know to be more reliable than carbine for at LEAST the last 12 years.
I still like a much shorter barrel though.

Not the other Aaron's in this industry!
Oh damn, I’m building my AR as carbine length.
Pretty much got everything except the gas block, barrel and sights, still catching up on bills, though I did just get the gas tube out of the way.
Guess I can always build another upper once I finish this one.

The most expensive part is the barrel. Simply buy a mid length barrel. Buy a new gas tube – they’re only 12 bucks, a new spring and buffer will only cost another 40$. Double check your spring and buffer and make sure they are actually for carbine length. Did you buy a lower parts kit? If so which one did you get?
You’re only out a little over $50 assuming your buffer and spring are wrong.
There never seems to be enough time to do it right, but there is always enough time to do it twice.
