@Jinx: I haven't thought much to use a shroud across the top. Might look into it.
@BenoitOWN: I'm looking to convert it to FS and was looking into the Lapco FS ready 16" barrel. The only problem is that I need about 20" to clear the body. Right now my only option is attaching the barrel that is in the stock shroud of the T9.
Thanks for the input guys.
