My AR Stoner has been 100% from day one. 200 plus rounds down range. All but 4 of my shots fired have been reloads.

I think their FN barrels would be OK, I have not heard of any problems.

I went with a Wilson Combat barrel and couldn't be happier. They are worth the wait.

I bought one of the 16" PSA complete uppers, arrived at my door 6 days after ordering :) (unlike DSArms that had pushed my dates back constantly). Have yet to fire (lack of ammo) but no complaints so far.

I don't understand why somebody hasn't really ramped up on these as everybody seems to be out of stock of everything!

Before Aaron and Delta Company Arms seemed to implode and disappear from the face of the planet I had one on order with them about 6 months ago.

Then I had a CMMG on order through Midway and they kept pushing the date back so I called CMMG directly and was told mid May so I just went ahead and ordered one from them. Yesterday i called Grim Reaper Tactical and spoke with them. Seemed very nice on the phone and would custom do what I wanted so I ordered a 10.5" with pistol length gas and a FSB pinned at the carbine position and threaded in 1/2X36.

He said no problem and he was expecting some more blanks in about 2 weeks so one of those would be mine. He said his last shipment of blanks was 15!

So I can't speak for there quality but have read good things on-line about them, was pleased in speaking with them on the phone and should have what I want in a few weeks! Try giving them a call and see what they tell you. No charges until it's ready to ship!

This is one of the hottest rounds right now.

Midway didn't sell out because someone posted here. Everywhere is selling out...FAST!

Get on a list and be patient. Get ammo...lots of Ammo. It's harder finding that then barrels, unless you reload.

There are (lots of)several people out there who make Blackout barrels. You gotta find them and check every day for inventory.

CMMG...PS check midway...they are in stock right now!!!....


I got a 14.7" Wilson and love it. Shoots DEAD on!.

Anybody had an issue putting a suppressor on a CMMG 300BLK barrel? The one review said that the barrel wont work with his suppressor.

Got my barrel in that I ordered from Midway usa and there may be a problem with it.
When you look at the end of the barrel it looks like bore is not completely round!

Better hope it isnt completely round, the smoothbore 300 Blackout barrels are a baffle strike waiting to happen.

I have the PSA barrel and I like it a lot. It has done a good job with all of the different experiments of loads that I have made so far. Shot flawlessly and accurate.

Can see some pictures of your brass?

I'm having issues with mine.
Its not the guy that walks in with a gun and says he is going to start shooting that you have to worry about.

No problem with barrel. Sent pictures of barrel to manufacturer and they said it looked normal!
The said the 5R rifling causes a optical illusion at end of barrel.

what kind of problems are you having?

I know I have had some dented case mouths, but I figured it was just bouncing off of the shell deflector. I have reloaded all the ones that I shot, so I don't have any empty brass. Here is a pic of the ones that I fired and have reloaded:

I use the Lee Factory Crimp die.

I'm getting some odd markings on the necks of my brass.
Kinda looks like a HK fluted chamber but only on the neck.
Right away for the first 50 rounds it was almost scratching the brass.
I can chamber a round and extract it without marks, but if I fire it I get lengthwise marks.
I'll post some pictures tomorrow.

The other 5 barrels were just fine, but this one marks brass.

I bought six PSA CL barrels. All but one seems pretty good. They like the 125 sierras and 110 vmax if that helps. And case annealing looks promising too. I got that tip from arfcom

Hope this helps.







110 Vmax

There is an email into PSA about it but we havent heard anything back yet.
Just wondering if this is normal for their barrels or if this one is different.

Here are pics of the marks:
