First time posting here, and I am working on my first AR build. Right now I have a complete spikes 16in LE rifle and love the gun. A few months ago a friend and I bought the spikes calico jack stripped lowers. I have installed a double star LPK and added the spikes advanced trigger guard and a hogue grip,cheap buffer tube and parts (gonna replace with complete spikes parts) and a magpul stock that will be replaced with a B5 stock. Now my stripped upper I was thinking of using is a BCM and I put the spikes biohazard dust cover on it and have a spikes FA BCG. Here is my problem, I want a great barrel. I was looking at the BCM cold hammer forged mid length and this barrel. http://www.spikestactical.com/new/ss/st-fn-cold-hammer-forged-16-midlength-barrel-556-p-830.html

Has anyone bought the spikes cold hammer forged barrel? Like I said I have the normal chrome spikes LE barrel and I live it, but for,my first build I want to go with the best parts I can afford and it is between the spikes and the BCM. If I buy a spikes barrel I will buy a spikes stripped upper and use the BCM on my other lower that I thought of making into a pistol.

Thanks for the info

The Spikes barrel is a great barrel. It's a hybrid contour that is in between lightweight profile and Govt. Aim Surplus had them for $270 with pinned low profille gas blocks.

Thanks for the heads up, I hadn't looked at aims for a while.

I wonder what "properly sized gas port" means. It would be nice if manufacturers listed the post size.

I have a Spikes/FN 14.5" middy. Awesome barrel!

Another Spikes fan here, I have two of them. One is 6.8SPC, it is a keeper.

It's nice to be around spikes fans. I will just buy a stripped spikes upper, I was kinda hoping some people would help push me that direction.

Yeah I love my spikes rifle, I'm going to finish up my build with the spikes enhanced. I have a bcm bfh upper, but I want to spend a little less since I'm going to pick up a sig 226 dark elite and a sig p220. It's good to be the king. Enjoy
