Short barrels and long flash hiders

Do any of you own a rifle with a barrel less than 16 inches with a permanently affixed long flash hider that makes the barrel long enough that is isn't a legal SBR? If so could you please tell me why you chose to go this route? I see them advertised all the time and have never understood the allure.

Example: I see 11.5" AR-15 barrels with 5.5" flash hiders bringing the total length to 16"

I wanted a great flash hider and as short a barrel as I could get without a stamp for home defense. The result? A 14.5" barrel with a permanently pinned Phantom 1.5" flash hider.

Thanks! It was fun to put together.

The only thing I can think of with the other set up you mentioned is setting up for an extended WROL situation. A few seconds with a Dremel or a hacksaw and...

Well certainly not green tips. I use HPR 75 gr BTHPs but am not opposed to using M193s.

The AR is not currently my primary go to HD gun however. That role is taken by my KSG loaded with 00 Buck.
