I have a M4 DPMS barrel that has a tight chamber. Barrel is marked .223, wanting to get a chamber reamer. Wondering if I should get a .223 or 5.56, going to put it on a registered colt lower. Thanks in advance.

Why do you feel it's too tight? Is it length or do you have problems with the neck?

Men like it tight!

Not sure it reaming a finished barrel is the best thing to do. Try polishing the chamber first with a mild abrasive and with a fine finishing compound.

Worst case scenario it that you will have to shoot .223 Remington ammo and not Nato spec.

Why would you get a .223 chambered DPMS barrel for your Colt lower.

That's like putting a Honda 50cc dirt bike engine in your Harley.

Get a decent M4 barrel (like a Bushmaster or Colt) with proper chambering and chrome lining.

At least it will be accurate, won't leak oil or sound like a rhino with bad gas.
