I got a no-name heavy barrel the other day and am trying to identify it. I already went to www.biggerhammer.net to see what I could find, but nada.

Does anyone know which manufacturers made/make heavy barrels with no markings whatsoever?

I will say this, comparing the front sight of this new barrel with that of my Colt and Bushmaster rifles, the new barrel's front sight seems to have very sharply machined edges, as opposed to the rounded edges of the Colt or BM.
Maybe a clue, maybe not.

Thanks for all your help,
GS

I'm going to guess, without seeing it, that it's a Wilson barrel with a cast, not forged, front sight tower.

I can unequivocally state that, that is not my barrel...!

Any other opinions?

If you own a "no-name" barrel and are sure of its origin, let me know.

Thanks punkatomic.

I have a non-marked A2 profile pre-ban barrel. The front sight post looks cast (grind marks where the parting line is)?? The sight/gas-block is also pinned on with spring pins and not the standard tapper pins. The bore is not chrome lined. I harvested this barrel off of a "home built" A1 upper that I bought at a gun show. The PO told me that it was Olympic, but who really knows....... Does Olympic mark their barrels??

I used the upper receiver for the M4 barreled carbine that I built a few months back.

Recently, I had what was sworn to be a pre-ban Eagle upper with a heavy barrel with no markings.

Take that with the "many grains" of salt offered.

www.olyarms.com/ has info on how to identify their barrels.

My Eagle Arms barrel has no Markings.
