I need 2 barrels to complete my builds.  I am looking for 16" gov't profile, chrome lined bore, 5.56 chamber, carbine gas length, stripped.

Any ideas on where I can find 2 without waiting a year?

Thanks for any help.

J & T is 12-25 weeks backordered.  Ouch.  I keep checking the EE several times a day, but it seems reasonable priced barrels do not come up in pairs.

If you're willing to go with a non chrome lined option, there is a guy on calguns.net selling stripped 16" M-4 profile barrels in the classified section:

I finally got tired of my fruitless search for a barrel  and I ordered one, it arrived yesterday, it looks very well made. Matt is a standup guy that you can deal with with no worries.  

I have no dog in the fight, just passing along the info...

Thanks for the heads up.  There is a guy here on the EE selling the same barrels for a great price.  But I am not disciplined enough at gun cleaning to go without the chrome lined option.

Next gun show here is next month and I will be there looking, but I was trying to find them sooner.

I ordered one from M1S and got in a month, they are saying 16 weeks but that's for a kit, the barrels are shipping much faster.  2 weeks ago is when I received it.

I ordered a second one last week and on the phone they told me 8 weeks but I'll see.

M1S doesn't make the barrels they just sell them so you can get a nice barrel at a good price.

No, but now I wish I had.  I am building 2 identical ar's and I wanted all the pieces to be the same.  Stupid, I know, but every part is exactly the same.  The barrels are all I have left and I want to get 2 identical...
