a NIW Colt is like 380bux. Does any other company offer this style cheaper or at all?



Considering S.A.W. sells regular Colt 14.5" barrels for $500, these heavy SOCOM barrels are a steal at $380. Last year they were going for around $800.

I was thinking that someone mentioned a heavy-style 14.5" barrel by a different manufacturer, but I don't rember if it was an M4 profile, nor do I remember who makes them.

I got one and everyone I talk to says that is a great deal. Get one and never look back. Excellent service got mine from Alaska in 3 days!

There have been several "lightly used" ones in the EE recently for around $200. I know skich had them for a bit. I ordered one and the thing is beautiful. Bore looks brand new.

Good luck.

Boy did I luck out, I picked up a NIW COLT SOCOM 14.5 barrel a few months ago for $250. If id of known that they were worth at least $380, I would of bought a dozen.

What are you trying to do- M4 looks with more meat under the handguards? If you don't need the M203 slots, or would a Hbar profile with the M4 stepcut up front work?

I'd make my own from an HBAR, but the only 1/7 HBAR I can think of is the special run Bushy awhile back - but you wouldn't have the bayo lug, so a FSB swap would be in order if the lack of bayo lug was a breaker. Hell, I'd even put the M203 slots in it just for shits and giggles. By the time you pay for all that work, you'd be damn near the Colt price, though.

Hopefully you won't have to rip too many pages out of your calendar while waiting.

I like the bottom one, that is what I would wanna get. If bushmaster says they will take too long, I may still try and hunt down a different one, Im jus not goin to spend 380 on a COlt barrel. as good as they MAY seem, that is too much IMO>

How much did the Bushmaster barrel run you? What exactly did you decide on (barrel and profile I mean)?

Again, good luck on the endeavor!
