I'm looking for a barrel with the following features:
- post ban
- 20" long
- A2 gov't profile
- 1:7 twist
- 4150 steel
- forged front sight
- chrome lined chamber & bore
- 5.56 chamber instead of .223

I've already called Bushmaster but they don't have it.

Nobody currently makes such a barrel, although it is possible Colt may have in the past. Your only real option is to get an M16A2 barrel and have a muzzle brake permanently installed. Not a great solution, but I think that is currently the only way.

Forgot: you will need to have the bayonet lug shaved off too. I converted an M16A2 barrel to a postban, and it is really nice. It does not seem too loud.

Thanks for the replies, Imposter. So a muzzle break can be permanently installed on top of the threaded muzzle? It does not have to be a plain muzzle?

Yes, it need to be pinned in I think welded "permenantly" in place. Alot of Bushmaster factory Postban barrels are made this way.
