    FN barrels - made where?

    I am trying to decide between a DD or a Spikes/PSA CHF barrel (FN made).

    There doesn't seem to be any really performance difference between the two, and I haven't been able to find how Spike's special profile is superior (if it is). S, it may come down to where these barrels are made. I Know FN at least has offices in the US, but where are the barrels manufactured? TIA

    The Spikes branded FN barrels are excellent. I've used them in many builds and have never have a problem with them. The packaging states made in USA.

    Their Special profile is in between a Govt and Lightweight. It's a good compromise.

    I have read that, but FN makes it a point to mention their experience provided by Belgium, but no where on their site, or places that sell their barrel, have I seen it mentioned that they are in the USA, or wherever they may be made. Their site is for "FN Manufacturing" but it seems just an import office. It would be odd that the idea of people want their parts made in the USA, totally escapes them to mention it in their webpage. I know they have US government contracts, they might be required to be made in the USA, but the barrels made for distributors I cant find anything.

    They're made in South Carolina. The second post was accurate.

    Correct. FNH USA also makes M2 .50 cal barrels and entire M16A4's for Uncle Sam in their SC facility.

    My impression was that most of the CHF AR barrels on the market were made there under contract.

    Any read on DD's CHF's? I'd be amazed if they went elsewhere since they are so close to FN in SC.
