Should I go with a PSA, BCM, or what? Price isn't a big issue for me. I'm looking for quality more than anything.

On paper the PSA and BCM are equivalent.

BCM, however has a very long track record of producing superior parts.

That said, I just bought the PSA, as the price is too good to pass up, sold a 20 year old Bushmaster complete A2 upper for 325 , came out a little more out of pocket and got the PSA.

Havent had a chance to shoot it yet, but everything looks and feels top notch.

I have the PSA 20" and the quality is excellent.

You can't go wrong with PSA... but you can go broke shopping there.

I would go with the BCM but then again I tend to go with them for everything...

Get the BCM while it's in stock. It'll make your fucking balls tingle the minute you touch it. You won't look back.

Palmetto. Bought two. They work.

Both are good.  There is also Green Mountain $150. Probably not the quality of BCM, but has good specs and GM has a good reputation for 10/22 barrels.

This coming from the guy who, passed on all of them and went with a Fulton Armory 20" HBAR

Ask whose blank it is and who profiled and completed the barrel.

+1 for BCM.  No problems with the one I have

I'd have to go with BCM for it.  They just have a much longer and better track record.  I ain't knockin PSA but I will have to give them some more time.

I have a BCM A4 with that same 20" upper.
It's a very well made and accurate barrel.

BCM first and PSA second.
