Who makes some budget barrels that are decent quality? Looking at $200 or less. Any suggestions?

I just purchased a surplus ammo and arms 7.5 inch barrel 1/9 twist for 99.00 and I love it.

I should've said I would prefer chrome lines. Twist rate really doesn't matter to me. I see dpms sells a Hbar 7" for about $160. Any other options out there?

As touchy as that length is you're gambling on anything in your price range.

I've shot numerous 7" barrels without issue. Just a heavy buffer and no issues...I'm sure with all the options between buffers, springs, gas tubes, and blocks I could find something that works

The two likely problems are oversized port and undersized chamber.

Yea I thInk I've decided on a 10-10.5" barrel...more reliability and more reputable manufacturers in my price range...

Ditto
Bought one few months back
Great barrels from Surplus ammo, the prices are great too...
I paid $109 for 7 1/2"
My 556 AR pistol is amazing

You can spend a lot of cash on a big name, there are some retailers that offer quality products for a fair price
