First time building, and almost have everything I need to get my first AR finished. However, I ordered a ballistic advantage barrel from a recommendation here and it seems to have a little 'something' in the barrel.

It has the tiniest little but of 'something' sticking up about half way through the barrel, the little chip sticking up is neither wide nor sticking very far up, but its there for sure. I wish I could get a picture of it, but my galaxy s1 is showing its years and cant even come close to focusing on the inside of a barrel.

I've blown a lot of air through the barrel, but I don't own a clean rod or anything, so I haven't been able to actually poke it, that being said it doesn't seem to be dust or debris

Is this normal? What should I do next? How do I know if I should RMA it if need be? Thank yall.

Go to Wal-Mart buy a Bore Snake and some CLP. Put a small amount on the bore snake and clean the barrel and re-inspect. It could be anything, and is very possibly not a big deal. If you haven't cleaned it and don't have a picture then a group of folks on the internet will likely not be of any help... although opinions abound.

It's probably from the gas port. When drilling the gas port there is often a tiny fragment that gets left, it's common in any gun that has a gas port, not just ARs. First shot will take care of it.

As above, gas port burr.

Shoot it out.

Fast, got my barrel in 3 days after ordering.

Though, I did ask for a dirty joke in my order comments and did not receive one. So that was a bit of a downer.

no bueno! I asked PSA to draw a Pirate Monkey on my box once and they did it! -looked pretty good, too.

That is a relief...I'm torn between the BA 14.7 that I would perm attach an A2 flash hider to, or a Del-Ton 16", both mid-length....Del-Ton would save me $45, though...


edit- called up BA on the phone, placed order. Bam. He said they've been buzzing around due to SHOT, and mine should go out by the end of the week.

Aw damn it! Your comment didn't come through on the order sheet! I'll make sure to send you one with the next order.
