So what do you guys think of the Daniel Defense CHF barrels compared to say BCM and Noveske?
Link Posted: 10/12/2009 6:07:53 PM EST
I would say you can't go wrong with any of them. Specs copied and pasted below from each manufacturers website. Personally I would go wtih BCM but that is strictly personal preference due to their outstanding reputation, contributions to this website and commitment to make everything right. Again, I would be confident in any of the three.

Daniel Defense

* Barrel Profile: M4 Profile
* Barrel Specs: 16″ MP/HPI Tested, Chrome Lined, 1:7 Twist, Military Specification Heavy Phosphate Coated

* Front Sight Base: F Marked
* Barrel Diameter at Gas Port: .750″
* Made in the USA!

BCM

* M4 Feed Ramp Barrel Extension (USGI)
* USGI 1/7 Twist Rates
* USGI 5.56 NATO Chambers
* Mil-Spec 11595E - Barrel Steel (CMV)

* Manganese Phosphate Barrel Finish
* USGI Government Profile Barrels
* HPT (High Pressure Test) Barrels
* MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) Barrels

Noveske

* Extended Feed Ramps
* Mil Spec Phosphate finish
* Same weight as M4 barrel, 1 lb, 9 oz, but improved contour for maximum rigidity, no M203 notch

I wonder whether Colt or FN makes the better barrel?

IMO Bravo is the equal of FN...and we know Noveske certainly is

Those $169 barrels are NOT CHF but they are chrome lined which is nice. Good deal IMO. I bought several and they look great. I've also built and shot a few of them and they function just fine.

if you go with the DD from AIM, make sure you ask them for a coupon code. it will knock a lil over $100 off. I got one last month. Nice looking barrel but haven't had a chance to shoot it yet.

really? *sigh* that is so disappointing.
i saw them at a fun show. was consider a 20" hbar then sending it out to get IONbonded. (i like to buy local)
oh well, bravo is still local! no 20" though

PK has DD CHF barrel assemblies for $290, this has the FSB and barrel nut installed. http://www.pkfirearms.com/content/1/20/121/162
i've seen the same barrel() stripped for over $300. http://www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/Daniel_Defense_16__M4_Profile_Hammer_Forged_Chrome_Lined_Barrel.html
what gives? why is PK so much cheaper?

I tried a couple of the Daniel Defense barrels from Midway and was not impressed. Both had under size gas ports and short stroked. Not real accurate either, 2 to 3 MOA with match ammo. I drilled out the gas ports to .063 but haven't tested them since I modified them.

Anyone else having this issue?

I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger on one of those a couple of months ago. I was really close to ordering one.

anyone else with the issue of undersized gas port? anyone have no issues with DD non CHF barrels (the ones going for 170)
Link Posted: 10/24/2009 12:25:20 AM EST
I bought one of the Daniel Defense CHF barrels from AIM and love it. I used it for an Adams Arms piston build, so I didn't want the front site base installed.
Link Posted: 11/2/2009 7:14:39 AM EST
I picked up a non CHF barrel from Daniel Defense last week to use on a A.A. piston build and it works great.
