    Colts are not CHF; they are button rifled barrels. Weight difference is something like 4 ounces more than a 14.5" Gov profile M4 barrel.

    Grant sells as advertised with fast turnaround—mine works great!

    The 14.5" SOCOM barrel weighs less than 2 oz more than a Colt 16" M4 barrel and has better balance.

    I thought PAC-NOR finished Noveske’s barrels. But that may be just the SS barrels

    Like the sound of one hand clapping: If it's 16"...can one call it an "M4"?

    It's 2018...ain't nobody seeking out the a 16" carbine barrel on purpose on a 223/5.56.

    PAC-NOR does their stainless and FN does their N4 barrels (CMV).

    More along the lines that Noveske does the work on their own Stainless Steel, with their own tooling to their specifications using Pac-Nor machines. There is a difference which is why Pac-Nor does not market barrels for AR-15s.
