    I have a 308 BA barrel that I think is 12.5″. I was planning on using Aero’s M5 Enhanced upper with a 9″ handguard but those seem to be unobtainium. Will a 12″ handguard give me enough room to attach a suppressor to a Xeno mount? Right now I have a Nomad but I will eventually pick up others.

    I think you’ll be fine. The barrel shoulder may be slightly inside the handguard, but I think the mount will be outside. It’ll be pretty close though.

    Likely no because Aeros “12in” rails are actually 12.6”

    Seeing as the HG is .5″ shorter than the barrel, I’d say yes. It should be fine.

    Are you trying to run the can under the handguard? I’m running into a similar issue with my new build, and will need to remove about 0.02″ off the inside of the Aero rail on two sides to make it all fit perfectly with my new Nomad-30.
