    I think I saw somewhere, maybe TOS, that Brownells is looking into a run of their A1 barrels with a 1:7 twist. Might be worth contacting them to ask about it.

    Thanks for the heads up, and I'll keep an eye out on that. I bought one of their A1 uppers, so I'm progressing.

    Lately, though, especially after being inspired by militarymoron's lovely retro post, I've been thinking about doing an XM177-E2 instead. I've subsequently also been looking at lightweight carbine barrels. It seems that the only ones with the correct profile out there are the 6720 barrel militarymoron cut down (which is OOS everywhere), some OOP Daniel Defense barrels, and some Double Star offerings. I don't see the point of cutting down a $250 Double Star 14.5" lightweight barrel assembly and pinning an $130 muzzle device on it if the Colt barrel costs just $20 more, though.

    This is literally what I'm wanting. I'm not really looking to build a retro gun. Because I'm going to refinish it but I do want a SBR, carry handle, a1 stock, triangle handgaurds

I was considering using their 20" GUNNER barrel as a more modern interpretation of the A1 pencil profile barrel. Here's the barrel I had in mind:

    Checked our website. Does show the 1.9" gas block journal. With the thin barrel, it certainly can be deceiving!

    Cool

    My retro M16A1 rifle currently in the works will be built with this barrel. These are nice no-nonsense folks and they will see to it you get what you need.

    As you can see these are 1-8" twist chrome-lined .625 20" pencil barrels made by Criterion, who produces quality barrels. This barrel is the correct profile for your build.

    Faxon also makes great barrels. I have a couple of theirs and I have no problems with them whatsoever. Later this year I plan on building a 7.62x39 Dissipator using one of their barrels. Looking forward to that particular build too.

    The other day, Brownells sent out word on another forum that they are just about to receive an order of their new A1 barrel assemblies. They are in route to them as I write this. They posted that you could go ahead and post an order for one, but it would temporarily be on backorder. I ordered one immediately. Here is their post from 1/5/17.

    "We were notified by the manufacturer that the first batch of 20" A1 1-12 Barrel Assemblies shipped to us yesterday. These should post on the site next week.
    If you'd like to call in your order, our part number is 100-020-999. Again, they're not in-stock, but you can backorder it if you'd like

    This is the barrel I was interested in as well. Who are you having drill and pin the FSP on for you?

    I might be missing an understanding here. Please specify which barrel you're asking me about again. I apologize for my mistake here.

    If I understand you correctly now ... I just checked Fulton's site and did not see the complete barrel being offered anymore. When I purchased mine I either purchased what was then offered as a complete barrel assembly or had them install the FSP, etc., prior to shipping it. I will have to find my invoice somewhere and check (this may take a while ... LOL) but I will check for you if you want (let me know).

    I have used a gunsmith here locally that has good lathe skills and he has installed a couple for me for $75.00 each with me supplying all the parts but that's been a few years.

    Here's his link: http://www.vandenbergcustom.com

    You can call him and see what he says. No-nosense gentleman and I've had NO problems whatsoever with his work.
