Anybody use a 14.5 J&T LW barrel? I am looking at one for a 653 build and was wondering about the quality and profile. Are than any other options out there? Thanks

I was actually thinking of using one of these as well. Would also like to hear some input.

Some people also use Bushmaster superlight barrels. You could have one cut down.

Before you think too hard, check on availability. When I checked on their 16" lightweight, it was not in stock.

Another option would be DPMS.

I think I'd stick with the J&T if you wanted one that's actually light profile and not one that tapers back to HBAR in the FSB area.

Thanks for the info guys, I will have to contact J&T and see if they have them in stock. I also have a 16" 1/12 colt I may send to AR15barrels.com and get cut to 14.5. How does his spacer look on a built gun? The photos on the sight don't show a FS.

That’s the only thing I don’t like about that DPMS barrel.

I thought about swapping barrels with my son but he won’t hear of it.

LOL is he as anal about his retro stuff as the rest of us are?

You can contact J&T about the 14.5 LW, but they have been out of stock of them for a loooong time- at least a eyar or more. I keep checking in to see if they have them and they have them on order, but none in stock...

I won't even call, I will take your word for it. I decided to send off the 16 colt LW to be cut down.

Just emailed them about it. I'll let you guys know what they say.
