You guys and your mid lengths have had me slowly burning up a Jonesing for one.......I looked at a nice Armalite Middie and a RRA today...both were really nice but I do NOT like HBARS on AR-15s....does anyone in the top five make a Mid length / pencil barrel?

Yes, I could look but someone who knows will probably get me what I want to know faster....I'm on dial up here and "on line shopping" is a big pain in my ass.

Thanks folks!!!

I wish. Closest is Government profile. You would have to get one made.

Either send your midlength to ADCO to have it turned down, or have one of the custom tube makers, a la Noveske, make you one. That's the best you're gonna do for now.

That's another good question! Both the RRA and the Armalite were HBAR......both were really sweet....I couldn't decide on the Picatinny RRA with the built in rear sight ( NNNNnnniiiiiccceeeee! ) or the Armalite A2 midlength......

I'm not clear on the definition of mid-length barrels, but if you mean 16", then I believe Bushmaster has one and J&T Distributing also carries one. I believe they are both .625" in diameter.

Bushmaster does not make mid length gas system barrels. CMMG is the company that offers government profile mid length barrels. $250. They are 1/7 CL 5.56 barrels.

There are other players now, but I got mine from ADCO too. Works great.

I beleive Cavalry Arms makes a Gov't profile mid length barrel.

Bravo Company is making a mid-length government profile, 1/7 chrome lined barrel. They are being made as we speak and are not yet available. There is a thread here someplace that describes them. And Grant is going to do a group buy on them when they come out.

Sabre defence makes a gov't profile midlength. It's lighter than my M4s.

ETA: it has feedramps as well. 1/7 twist I believe.
