Custom barrel adapter advice

I am in the process of building my ATS marker into a FSR capable platform. There are no rifled barrels available for this market and odds are there never will be, so I am left having to get barrels rethreaded and/or have an adapter made.

My question is about the feasibility of such an adapter. Due to the specifics of the marker, the adapter would have to be between 5 and 6 inches long, which gives plenty of room for the round to get up to speed before it encounters any rifling (assuming I link it to a hammerhead or similar barrel). Do you think that this would be problematic?

My other option is to have a hammerhead cut down, rethreaded, and to run it without a fin. The result will be a short barrel, but the round would encounter rifling early, before it got up to speed. Prices are not significantly different for either option.

Having had long conversations with the likes of UV_Halo and some practical knowledge of this situation, I *STRONGLY* suggest cutting and rethreading a Hammer Head rifled tip.

Having a round encounter rifling when it is up to speed will likely cause more of the "fouling" issues that UV_halo encountered.

i think you're asking for breaks.
whats better to already be squeezed and pushed or to be going fast and then almost instantaneously get squeezed?

That is about what I expected, I'll stick with rethreading versus an adapter. Thanks everyone.
