So, I'm looking for a 16" lightweight barrel that's .625 under the sight base and came across a NIB Bushmaster barrel for $225. Barrel nut, hand guard cap and A2 sight base installed. BFI 5.56 NATO 1/9 marked with M4 cuts. Am I going to be hard pressed to find a better option at this price? Thanks.

Depends, if you want to keep it with the plastic hand guards or not.

DSG Arms has the Daniel Defense lightweight profile barrel with the low pro pinned gas block for $250~. CHF with the .625 gas block. I think thats a better deal.

Yeah, I want this one to remain with the standard sight base.

Voodoo Innovations and Ballistic Advantage. The Bushmaster used to be the lightest 16" barrel on the market, then the lightweight trend really picked up.

Thanks guys. That is the info I was looking for. Already have a lightweight mid-length. Want this one to be a carbine gas. Will probably stick with the BM. Thanks again.

Another vote for VooDoo. They do have some nice new lightweight profiles out. I got a M4 Voodoo and it definitely shoots 1 MOA if not a little less.

Don't forget the J&T LW barrels. .625 GB. 10.5 thru 16". Chrome or none. $189 to $250, depending. They are 9-1 tho. I have their 11.5" and 14.5".

I just built up another with a 16" .625 DD LW. Nice barrel. It was $159 at Brownells during the Holidays.

Check out the Criterion barrels at Fulton Armory they offer a light wt .625 @ the gas block journal 1:8 twist
16" with carbine gas length (chrome bore & chamber).

If you are not going to do the work yourself you can pick up an F marked FSB @ Fulton or BCM or Probably ADCO has one
send your parts to ADCO and they can drill and taper pin your FSB to your barrel.
