Personally I would go with the further option, rather than the latter, but it's all preference. As far as the PDI receiver, I'm not sure if you would need it or not, the threads on the base that I posted seem to be the same as the stock barrel on a VSR.

Rather than buy all new parts, some fooling around just to see what I got.
Here is my rifle with a suppressor added, but without any adapter. Need some white tape that will be painted to replace black tape on suppressor. Is held firmly with electric tape spacers. Goes over the outer barrel up to the tip.
Just need my harris and a new paint job ( will hide all external black tape ) and she is golden.
Looks good, isn't that the G-SPEC model, so that's the stock suppressor?
It is the TM Regular outer barrel with a G-Spec Suppressor, which I happened to have lying around.
It's nice to change up the look without having to switch and redo barrel spacers to compensate with extra room in outer barrel on the G-Spec model...With the suppressor over the outer barrel, I also don't have to buy a longer inner barrel to compensate for the suppressor hanging off the end on most guns.

Thanks man, psyched to get some new paint on it/removing black tape to give it that "clean look".
Something about the G-spec outer barrel + G spec suppressor just did not flow right. Perhaps because the G-Spec outer barrel is so wide, it just seemed to blocky for my taste. Liking it with the reg. barrel, plus it saved me over $150, which I say is a plus.

Not sure on the measurement, but I do know it is the compact version, so I assume a 6'' one. I prefer the compact over the regular size simply because low profile looks better and is easier to use in prone.
