    Obviously look at reputable brands, but I caution you if you’re using a AR and shooting rounds in any type of volume…AND suppressed…I would recommend some type of 4150 chrome moly unless you like replacing barrels. Heat is the primary component to barrel wear and throat erosion. Though….normally I know if the barrel is about shot when accuracy (group size) opens.

    I use to check lands measurement with OAL gauge but I had a Remington 700 that had like 1.5 inches of wear past the free-bore and it still shot sub moa….until I cut the barrel back and re reamed it.

    I hadn’t considered BCM, thanks!

    I appreciate the info, I haven’t shot on paper or really much past 50 yards lately to notice a difference in accuracy/grouping, I just know that I’m hitting 66% ipsc steel at 240 yards if I do shoot past 50.
    It just tripped me out having such a noticeable difference in pressure to put a .22 bore brush down 2 556 barrels.

    The basic PSA (non premium) barrel that came with the upper. It started life as a basic PSA upper and I’ve swapped the BCG, CH, handguard, gas block and gas tube, so besides the barrel just the upper is PSA.

    I haven’t but I don’t shoot paper or past 50 yards often and I haven’t painted my steel lately so I’m not that sure of where my hits are on steel.

    Hodge is a bit spendy and I think they only go down to 12.5 but their barrels are supposed to be designed around heavy suppressed use with hot ammo

    SOLGW would be another I’d consider along with BCM…I don’t think FN makes one that short for commercial sales

    Same crap everyone else got
    I've been happy with my 11.5 ballistic advantage barrel. Just a budget minded option for you that isn't bottom tier but also no top operator level either. They are 4150 chrome moly with a .073 gas port size so it shouldn't be super over gassed. For the $120 you will spend on them, you could probably buy 2 that will last you many many years.

    Damn that’s a pretty good deal and I’d prefer it with no fcg so I could get what I wanted instead

    Yeah. I run a drop-in triggers on all mine, I also will have no use for the grip(I run Magpul K2+), or safety(run Elftmann), but it was a good deal either way as the lower is normally like $175ish($154 blem) by itself.

    They also had the EPC-9 lower build kit for $149 :santa2: If I didn't have an extra lower laying around, I would have bought it just cause.....but no reason to have 3 EPC-9's.....especially when the EPC-10 is set to come out this year :rofl:

    I have a PCC already although an EPC 9 would be a nice addition. It’s tax time and Christmas coming so this was about as much as I’m willing to spend currently. I’ll move on finishing the lower and progress from there after Christmas
