Info about SASR Bitch

Hello everyone, this is mi first post here so I want to thank the administrators for letting me in. I would like to convert an Aussie L1A1 into a SASR Bitch but I cant find any technical info on it. I would really apreciate if someone could tell me what lenght the barrel was usually cut to and how the additional piatol grip was connected to the 2 pieces handguard. On some pictures the gas plug looks like it has been moved to the rear and the handguard shortened, what would be the position of the gas plug in such cases?
Thanks in advance!

I don't think there was any standard.. these were things that were improvised in place via field armorers. Basically a bitch would have been pretty much any L1A1 that had been shortened in some way, shape or form and a forward grip added.

the barrel was not shortened just the flash hider was cut back. if you look at pictures of the real deal you can still see the flash hider key (bump)

so basically take a standard L1A1 and cut back the flash hider. I install a forward grip by getting a big washer and putting it inside the hand guards and using a L1A1 grip bolt it through one of the bottom holes or if you have an owen gun grip put the washer and nut inside the hand guards. Or fab up a mount for a M203. last thing is make it select fire and get some 30 round mags

.....some were indeed shortened mate, others just had the FH chopped, a forward pistol grip (sometimes but not all) added and the L2 selector dropped in, but some are certainly chopped with a short gas system and handguards.

And there was only one "Bitch" the rest were just modified SLRs ...
