Hello,

I was wondering if there's any real difference in accuracy between WOA and -say- RRA or Bushmaster barrels. I'm building a Mk12 Mod0 and since I'm a bit low on dough I thought about cuttin' a fw corners.

Are there any good custom barrel manufacturers who offer resonably priced barrels?

Thanks a ton guys.

One difference right off is twist rate. I don't think RRA makes anything 1/7. I think their stainless barrels are all 1/8, while the WOA SPR is 1/7. 1/8 is a very good twist rate, though, and I've often planned on reprofiling one of RRA's varminter barrels to some lighter profile and building something out of that.

I have detected a small, underground movement to 1/8 twist barrels. In fact last month or the month before, I saw someone advertising a chrome lined 1/8 twist barrel - the first I've ever seen.
