Does anyone have 1st hand experience with these? After the german and pof barrels dry up it looks like these will be the only option unless someone else starts making them.

Supposed to be good, however after sometime in Sept they will no longer just sell barrels unless you have one of their guns so buy one soon. Something to do with the ORF competition.

Why supply your #1 competitor with parts?

I doubt the RF5, when it sees production, would have had a single Special Weapons part in it regardless of wether or not Bailey was still selling them.

Whose # 1 competitor ?

Bailey doesn't have a competitor ! He has the market cornered on HK after market parts, whether or not they work... they have the market so there is no competition.

Top notch barrels. A true oxymoron.

The barrels are stainless steel and wont take mag phos park. They have a rep for poor extraction. I got one unintentionaly. It came in an unbuilt Interport receiver. It was so poorly instaled I had to have it pressed out. The outside diameter was so marginaly in spec that it had been knurled so as to help keep it statioary in the trunion. I was happy to have the smith switch over to my parts kit barrel.

If I had to choose a Stainless SW barrel for a build, I would opt too build something else.
