Hi. I'm trying to find out who all makes AR barrels chambered in 6.5 Grendel. I know of Alexander Arms, but most of the other companies I knew of switched over to the .264LBC, and I don't want that. (I know they're close and interchangeable, but I still would prefer a true 6.5 Grendel chamber)

Ideally, I'm looking for a 20-24" cut rifled SS barrel.

Thanks everybody!!!!

Call AA they have the 24 in stock I believe.

Right now, AA is the main source for Grendel chamber barrels. There are still some Grendel chambered Satern barrels floating around, I saw a couple on Gunbroker last week, so you might be able to find one of those.
Since the Grendel just went mainstream, it might take awhile for the other barrel guys to start doing genuine Grendel chambers, if they switch at all. For most shooters, the 264 chamber works, so unless enough customers ask for them, they may not invest in a Grendel reamer.
I would rather have an original chamber also, if AA gets there new barrels ready before I save up the cash, I will go with them. If not, I will have to settle for one of the 264 barrels.

A cut rifled barrel for accuracy but a general purpose chamber?
Satern stopped making Grendel barrels but may start producing the 264LBC, they are cut rifled.
Bartlein, Krieger and Rock produce cut rifled blanks for Apx $330 then you will have to pay a smith to chamber, thread and install the extension probably another $200.
I don't see a company ever producing a large amount of cut rifled Grendels, just too expensive but having them custom made is easy.

Try LWPT! It seems that they have some Grendel blanks from back in the day. And they were the original Mfg so there is a bit of History there. And they were treated justt like Satern Custom..
They would love to lower that inventory and those are quality barrels.

Alexander Arms is probably going to be your best bet. I just ordered a 20" from them yesterday for my build. I tried finding other manufacturers but went with AA for simplicity and cost sake.
