OK I have everything for my middy upper build except a barrel. I will use this as a general purpose carbine mostly range use. I need one with a FSB already installed, so which ones are good ? Any to avoid? Thanks

I know Delton sells barrels with FSB on them.

Budget?

Any existing preferences?

Assuming it is for non-precision work since you want an FSB.

If it's just a blaster I would think about Ballistic Advantage modern series. There's a site sponsor (Androcorpind or something like that) who sells them for (I think) $145 w/FSB in the EE.

There's always Colt at around $250 for an m4-type.

If you want something fancier, Adco sells DD barrels with FSBs at a nice price point. IIRC 280-ish.

Weight-wise go with a gov't profile versus an HBAR. Weight and balance difference is noticeable.

BCM BFH 16" Mid Length (LIGHT WEIGHT) Upper Receiver Group (.625FSB) a little over $500
Sell whatever stripped upper you already have

Faxon does NOT sell them with FSB installed. I'd go ballistic Advantage for a FSB middy. VERY good barrel (same par as Faxon) and VERY affordable FSB option. BA has 4150 1/7 16" middies w/FSB installed for around $170 (and they have a MOA guarantee).

Andro Corp has the 4160 CMV BA barrel with barrel nut and FSB for $145 shipped. I know the BA barrel from Andro does not come with the front sight post or sling swivel, that is $8 extra. I don't believe the AIM combo comes with either as well.

If you want Ballistic Advantage, don't go with androcorpind. He pm'ed me to send him an email to purchase the barrel I was interested in. I emailed him three times and pm'ed him twice more. No replies from him. I'll excuse it if he is dead, incapacitated, incarcerated, or fired. Otherwise that's just shitty on his part.

There is CMMG. I have had one on my AR for about 10 years now.
