Already have BRD and have shot lots of manufactues barrels but my delima is that I am torn between a WOA 18" SPR for about $265 or A Noveske 18" SPR for $450.

I know the Noveske cool aid is tasty and runs deep but I also know WOA has a great rep as well. Is it really worth $185 more for the Noveske? I am an average joe with at beer wallet and a family...........

I can feel the heat of the flame already, but really what are your true thoughts?

Come to think about it doesn't the Noveske come with a matched bolt and a pinned gas block for that price? WOA don't come with all that does it?

You could buy a gas tube, roll pin, and Bravo Co. bolt carrier group for the difference between the Noveske and the WOA.

Noveske barrel with gas block is $450.
The barrel group comes with gas block, tube, pin, and bolt is $515.
They went up about $20 in the last few weeks. Rightfully so with the demand lately.

I am inclined to go Noveske but man that price thing is tough.......

Anyone else want to put there opinion out there

I have a 16" Noveske ss barrel and can't really see the difference. You might wanna try a Sabre ss barrel. they have ones that are fluted and with a flip up sight for about the same money. I'm all about custom hand lapped tubes, but I'm not sure that its worth it on an AR. But then again, I'm still not sure how some people get Ar's that will shoot .5 moa. Mine will rarely get under an honest 1 moa with any match or hand loads.
