I have a spare stripped upper to go with my TGO billet lower and have always intended to build an upper to match my 18” upper. For a couple of years now, I’ve gone back and forth as to whether I should do a 14.5” barrel with a pinned flash hider to avoid the cost and hassle, or go the SBR route and go with something like a 10.5” barrel.  

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve researched the process. Is it still a painful and time consuming process?

not necessarily.   Efile form ones are about a month.

In the amount of time you've been going back and forth, you could have submitted the paperwork and gotten an approval many times over. Just submit it and don't look back.

Do you have to have a stock? If not, why not use that lower for something else and build an AR Pistol? They are cheap now, and you don’t have to mess with tax stamps.

SBR or any class III is too restrictive in my opinion regarding travel, possession by others, etc...

i may be mistaken, but simply crossing state lines (as i understand it) is not ok w/out some steps (from a purely legal standpoint) and i cannot loan it to anyone under any circumstance for use unless I remain present.  

not wort the restrictions.

Braces are good these days (SBA3 mounted to a mil spec buffer tube) does the job along w/ the shockwave or the any other number of braces.  

just my perspective, FWIW

Until they are deemed illegal.   And then they wouldn't be worth the hassle.

SBR/SBS this is true. For suppressors it is not as long as it's a suppressor friendly state.

and i cannot loan it to anyone under any circumstance for use unless I remain present.  

50/50 true/ false. If you have a trust or Corp, people in the trust or Corp can use it. A class 3 dealer may also repair and test one.

not worth the restrictions.

      Well, got another one!  Took my dad out shooting, after shooting the mac m10 and the colt M16, he is hooked.  We shot Saturday, and by monday night I had found and purchased him a like new mac m10.  He decided on the M10, because he can just use all of my accessories and uppers that I have accumulated for mine over the years.  I also have a new upper in the works for this thing.  As basic as the macs are, they have become a transferable sear pack. At 1/3 the price of a trany m16, they have really become a hot item.   There is just something about that full auto experience and I love letting people shoot them.

      Some company in Idaho recently started appearing in my googleads.... I've got to admit, for 60 bucks, I'm tempted to try one. Perhaps it will improve the ahhh, fuel economy? Anyone here ever try one out?

      I recently picked up a 10.5” 5.56 to use as a truck/critter gun and possibly for home duties. I live out in the sticks with no neighbors so it’s nice to have a small rifle ready to go for anything that may come up. Now to the question:
      I currently have an AAC 7.62 SD on  .308 and am considering getting a QD flash hider for the 5.56 for double duty. From what I see I’m not sure the suppressor will have much perceived benefit on reducing the possible hearing damage. I’ll use ear pro outside of any bump in the night situations where I don’t have time to put on the muffs. 
       
      Second part:  I don’t want to mess with an adjustable gas block. I currently have an F marked block installed with a larger gas port similar to the MK18. I like the fixed sight so I’m also wondering if the gas will be intolerable by suppressing an already over gassed rifle. 
       
      My goal is to reduce any permanent hearing damage. If it’s way too much expense, added weight, and overall trouble trying to obtain a minimal result then I’ll hold off. I love the way this thing is balanced without a suppressor.
