That’s interesting.

My understanding is their barrels start with Green Mountain blanks, they button rifle them. Then they have them chromed locally and re-inspect themselves.  I have one of their M4geries (MPC) and the barrel is a big reason why.

The problem with Wyndam / old school Bushmaster is they have never gotten the 5.5 flashider right especially now where they can get a good copy purchased by companies that make them.

A bit too thick forward of the front handguard cap, but I do like the twist.

That’s more appropriate for a mk18 clone..

It’s a 10.5 pistol barrel with a 6 inch XM177 style flash hider pinned and welded on. Meh.
If they’re buying these as GM barrel blanks and sticking on 6 inch flash hiders, why not cut them down to a correct 10 inches and lop off the useless bayonet lug with a pass or two? Just seems barely close enough to be worth looking at, but I did return that 10.3 Brownell’s barrel that came with an F-marked FSB for a reason, and that reason being I really damn want a 10 inch barrel for my XM177 build I’ve never completed

Before the 94 AWB they sold a metric ton of Bushy and Olympic ARs with that barrel on them and it was the only type available locally as a complete rifle right before the ban.

I always wondered why, I was told they could make more complete rifles this way from a standard length barrel blank.

+1

They are already too long at 11.5 + 5.5" flash hider but 6.5" flash hider is more ridiculous and not retro.

I salute their attempt for retro support but look at it.

It looks like they took an M4 carbine barrel with .750" front sight base, cut it down to 10.5" or so, and stuck a funky 6.5" extension on it.

Not retro at all, but I'm sure that they'll sell some of them anyway.
