I haven't shot it yet, but it seems to be very well machined.

I see lots of complants about ar stoner brand products, barrel tool is junk the clips are c products and c products will replace bad ones but the only bad magazines I have ever owned were ar stoners. Have not heard anything bad about their barrels yet, I try to avoid products they put their name on.

You never know about a new company. But everyone has to start somewhere. I will call them Today and ask them how they cut the lands and groves.

I've read that this one has a loose fit

haven't heard anything about this one yet, but the Midway reviews don't sound promising

The method makes little difference, it's the quality of the job that matters. I doubt they'll tell you they do a bad job. AR Stoner probably isn't the one doing the machining anyway. They probably buy them from a barrel maker and slap their name on it.

Tool cut, button, hammer forging, ECM, etc. All of these methods produce a fine barrel. Which one is bad, in your opinion?

EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that a phone call is a bad idea, but if you find the barrels are button rifled, for example, then what? What would that tell you?

Both known for HIGH quality.

Like I said, mine appears to be machined well.
