Well this new thought just came to me and I'm very surprised it hasn't already.  I want to build a rifle that looks like this:

I was pondering about how to make it happen with the standard LM4 for quite some time and figured there's no way unless I got a new outer barrel (the pictured rifle is 16 inches) and nobody knows if there will be any that are compatible with the LM4.

Anyways I got the idea just now of getting an LM4C along with a 5 inch or so barrel extension (not a suppressor) in conjunction with the URX II rail.  I could remove the front sight post, and get a low profile gas block.  The gas block would sit (I think) right over the joint of the extension (example: http://www.knightarm...r15_last_01.jpg) with a medium length gas tube and if I needed to I could probably dremel small grooves in the barrel for it to grab on to.  The original barrel notches would be hidden in the RAS system.

I would get an extended inner barrel for it, and even if the inner barrels for the Asia don't fit I could survive with it until someone manufactured one that does fit.

Is this a plausible idea? Or am I missing something?  I'm not very experienced in dealing with front ends so I don't really know.

Comments?  Thoughts? Suggestions?  Anything would be nice.

Just pop a 2" barrel extention, theyre usually pretty cheap and just screw right on.

I wish it was that easy but it won't work. The M4 style barrel changes dimensions not allowing the right gas block. And it would look funky anyways.

Also a sixteen inch barrel can't use a carbine gas block, and the seam wouldn't look good because the metals would be different between the barrel and the two inch extension.

The new SR-15 have dimpled barrels so this is perfect if it would work.

EDIT: By not working I mean on a real rifle.
