Is this an Adco only thread or can I post too?

I like a fluted bull barrel. I want a fluted 18" RRA, maybe I could get some really cool guys with a top-notch company to build me one. I think I may contact Adco!

How much of an actual difference in weight is there? It's hard to tell from a pic, but those flutes don't seem deep or numerous enough to make enough of a difference to justify added cost.

Is that one of your Kreiger $550 barrels. Wish I could round up the cash for that, but I can get 2-3 other barrels for that price. Let us know what you build with it.

I'm not sure if you have had a chance to play with the XM-8, but one of the things I liked about the 20" version was the fluted barrel. It makes me laugh, because so many people around here mock fluting and think of it as a gimmick. When they find out that it is the newest, latest, greatest thing to have, and that the military uses it, they will flock. Just my humble opinion.

You are so correct.

However, I will still continue to mock the fluted barrel.

So what's the difference between the standard DD 12.0 and the 12.0 Marksmanship unit?

Steel barrel nut



Was that done to create better durabilty or does it somehow increase consistency due to aluminum being a better heat sink?

There is a huge difference between someone who understands an issue, and makes a decision based off all available info, and the people who simply jump on board the "Me-Too" ARF express.

I don't hate you for not being on the train, besides, its probably already full.
