Considering the fill valve and reg secure into the threaded ends on the tube about 30mm that gives usefull internal lengths of 190mm GS tube and 265mm scorpion tube so the 3" longer tube gives nearly 50% more volume.
I figured it would be the same fittings, and was just wondering about the tube length relative to the barrel.

The alternative I thought of was to put an R10 type bull barrel shroud on, to extend or match the tube length. I fitted a bull barrel moderator to my S10 many years ago, but that was for both style and practical purposes.

Looking at Knibbs, I can't see the longer Scorpion tube, only the 250mm or 425mm tubes, are they available still? Or would I need to speak to BSA?
