Has anyone seen a stainless steel barrel with a M4 profile with an ion bond black finish?
I'm thinking of building a M4ish upper with a free float rail system. Since I'm going with a free float rail I thought go with stainless barrel for the accuracy.
You just may have nailed it.
My stainless barrels do not cycle steal cased ammo. ,it sticks to the barrel after being fired.
Brass works just fine but it can be a bit of a pain to keep seperate mags for one gun and remembering to never use them in others or you get a stuck case. Ideally I would like to shoot anything I want out of any AR I have without worries. A M4 stainless barrel does not make sense to me unless it has a oversized chamber that could possibly cycle steal cases but you would be loosing accuracy in doing so and the stainless would not matter anyway.
If you are going stainless I would stick to 20'' plus barrels for a SPR type build sinse you would be using brass cased match ammo. anyway. A M4 that is limited in ammo usage makes less sinse to me.
foursixty, Thanks for finding that.
bigjunk1, I never use steel case ammo. But didn't know that is was an issue, so thanks for the heads up. I already have Mk12 Mod 0 SPR clone and a M4 clone. Just have a wild hair to marry the two.
i tried some steel tulammo through my stainless worked fine only had 40 rnds of it though.
If you want an accurate free floated stainless barrel you will get more accuracy from a heavy or recon profile. M4 profile is frankly a retarded military bureaucratic mess.
