I have both of their stainless steel 16" H-Bars. The standard H-Bar is 1:9" twist and the SUM (Stainless Ultra Match) is 1:10" twist. They are the best shooting H-Bars I have tried, bar none. They both shoot 1/2" groups or better if I do my part!

I've got a 20" 1 in 10 ultra match which is a stainless steel, H-bar, button drawn, bore. It will dive tacks at 100 yrd.

I have herd alot of negitive things about Oly. Why? What is wrong with them. They are priced fair compaired to others. Fit and finish looks good. They are said to all be mill spec. However so have reported mag well problems. Such as poor fit.

The bad rap has been because of the lame customer service. LOVE mine though, great rifle. I have heard of the tight magwell problem but only know that all my USGI's work great!

I have a 1:9 16" stainless HBAR barrel that will outshoot every other AR barrel I have ever owned. The thing rocks. I also had a 20" 1:9 fluted stainless ultra match that was very good, but it would not quite equal the 16" tube in accuracy. Watch-Six

I had an Oly CAR-15 which shot incredibly well and was extremely reliable. It would even eat Wolf all day without puking (unlike my Bushmaster). I certainly would recommend them.

they are great bbls, i have heard that they are the best factory (non-custom) barrels out there, and the SUM's are better than some customs. the bad rap comes from some reliability problems stemming from improper upper reciever tolerances, but that these kinks have been worked out in the newer models. i've never had a problem with any Oly product.

Thanks for all the input guys, sounds like it was just a bad rumer! Can't wait to shoot mine.
