What advantage does the change in barrel diameter provide? Why not a tapered barrel like a FAL?

Less likely to be bent in a fall/warp than the lightweight ones.
Better heat handling than thin lightweight barrels, but a nice tradeoff between the thin and the HB's.

Oh, and most important....
Looks COOL!

You forgot to mention the notch for mounting the M203.

Is that notch useable to attach a GI Bipod. the kind that clips on the barrel.

Big dealyou can put a 203 on a Hbar too.

I suppose you could but heat that baby up with a 100 rounds and then prone out with that weight pushing on the barrel.... that's gonna hurt the accuracy somewhat.

Fluted hvy. bbl. seems to be the best option, IMO

Looks cool, period.
(If it's a Colt, investment factor)

there is no point, except for those who think it looks cool. mounting a 203 on an M4's barrel is about the worst idea ever, little bit of full auto and the barrel can go limp (you better believe that degrades accuracy!)

horrible idea...fluting has got to be better
