Personally, I prefer the known quality of FN, so I picked up one of those as a beater upper.
i love the FN stuff. If its good enough for our marines and soldiers, its good enough for me. :)
the ptac im going to give a chance. i purchased one for a dedicated .22 build. From the looks of it the finish isnt perfect but its well useable, and compared to a delton, the 1/7 twist is better than their offered 1/9

Perhaps a PSA rep would Chime in.
i just dont know what small SC Company could be producing for them. Yes, FN does it and they're just across town. the only other company i can think of is ATI who just moved to summerville, so i doubt them, idk what other SC company is tooled up to produce barrels.
I wish they would, but they so far to my knowledge have only stated its a local company that we're the sole retailer for. so idk.
