Hi all,
I'm building a coyote/fox and prairie dog rifle. Trying to decide on a barrel is driving me nuts!! I want a 20", chrome moly, good quality, accurate barrel. I would be very grateful for any and all suggestions. Also, do I want a muzzel device? I think they look great, but I don't know if I should have one. Thanks in advance for the help.

IF YOUR LOOKING FOR A BARREL WITH AN UPPER, TRY "midwayusa.com".
THEY HAVE GOOD DEALS ON HEAVY BARRELED DPMS UPPERS, WITH A CHROME BOLT.
IT'S WHAT THIS AR IS MADE FROM.

I BUILT THIS AR FOR COYOTE HUNTING, IT SHOOTS JUST UNDER 3/4".

If you don't mind a large diameter/heavy barrel, try Olympic Arms SUM barrels (just the barrel, put it on another brand upper). The SUM barrels are very accurate and one of the best buys. They can achieve the same accuracy as a more expensive barrel.

Go witha free floated 24" Wilson barrel. I just finished a build and it shoots really great. As far as a FS or brake, I would leave the barrel plain as some say anything on the end of the barrel can effect accuracy.

With a heave barrelled rifle, you will not need a MB. A nice target crown on the barrel will be your best option.
