Who makes a chrome lined mid length handgaurd 16" barrel? I have seen the CAV arms uppers for sale but I really just want the barrel preferably stripped but I'll take one with the FSB/lug installed. Thanks.

RRA sells one now. I know Steve at ADCO sells it. Not sure who else does.

Armalite makes one also, but I don't see them listed as separate items on their website. An email/phone call may help.

Mine is still in back order...6 weeks now. I guess it is a little tough to get barrels from RRA at this time.

WOW! You guys are fast! Thanks for all the quick replies. I'll have to call RRA, Adco and Armalite to check availability.

I've got an Armalite. I'm extremely happy with the upper except for the handguards. They absofreakin'lutely suck.

I've heard lots of good things about RRA as far as they're accurate and they eat anything.

Goodluck.

I have no complaints about the HGs on my RRA mid-length. Don't know how well they hold up to heat though--have only done slowish fire with it (1 shot every 5-10 seconds). I would have assumed that RRA & Armalite get their HGs from the same place.

Try Cavalry Arms. They make mid-length HGs in both normal and the fatter M4-style.

I thought you said no one needed a 1/7 barrel unless we were going to fight off zombies or a Canadian paratrooper invasion...

Dude, quit confusing reality and fantasy- everyone knows there is no such thing as Canadian paratroopers!

BigBore, are those barresl goign to be 1/9 or 1/7?

LOL!

If BigBore is indeed talking about the Giffman mid-length barrel group buy then they have a 1/7 twist.

I still say its a waste of money to pay extra for a chrome lined, 1:7, 4150 barrel compared to standard RRA/BM barrel. But I'm in business to make money, and if theres a demand, I'll supply. The AR crowd is an interesting bunch The only group I have come across who are more anal are the 1911 die-hards

I'll also add that when you start getting into highend AR's and 1911's it aint about need anymore. We will get what we want because we can. If we were only limited to what everyone thought we "NEEDED" we would be lucky to even be allowed to own a 10/22 and .38 and you'd probably be out of business...

Also for someone like me who doesn't have a whole store full of AR's I want my two AR's to have the option to shoot the best Zombie stopping, Canadian Paratroop defending ammo available.

I also know a few people who always tell me I don't need my 4x4 Jeep but who's laughing now.

Cheers!

Bigbore,

Is that Giffman barrel supposed to be thicker or thinner than the RRA in front of the front sight? I'm awaiting a RRA from you to do your famous upper with DD. All advice & info is greatly appreciated!

IIRC the "giffman" barrel is .72" full length (except for under the FSB, by the chamber, and a flange for the HG cap). My RRA (a 1:8 SS) was more like .74 in front of the FSB and about .9" under the HGs. I believe a RRA profiled by Adco will be less than .72" under the HGs (more like .63") and the same .74" in front of the FSB.

Anybody have a idea what the weight difference will be? I was waiting on ADCO to get thier RRA barrels to have it lightened under the handguards. I want a lightweight gun no heavier than my M4's. All info is appreciated!
