Now I've got an especially good item for anyone intending to re-barrel their M1A. This barrel could be used to replace a worn out field grade barrel or to build a match rifle. What I have are two medium weight, NM, .308 barrels. They are parkerized carbon steel and so would match the finish of a field grade rifle, but would be a lot more accurate than a G.I. version. They only weigh 14 ounces more than a G.I. barrel, so would not be too heavy to carry in the field. They are 1:12 twist, which is good for any bullet weight between 147 grs. and 175 grs., thus being usable with ball or match ammo. All standard G.I. parts fit. The only markings on the barrel are a faint stamping of "NM .308" on the portion of the barrel between the gas cylinder and the flash hider, and that can hardly be seen.
I don't know who manufactured these barrels, only that they were designed for one of the military rifle teams. These are brand new, match-grade barrels. A new op rod guide will be supplied with but not fitted to each barrel.
The barrels are chambered but should be checked by the installer. Of course, anyone capable of installing one of these would know that.
Remember, there's only two and I won't be getting any more.
I have seen rifles built with these barrels shoot. They like M852 or M118LR and shoot either real well. Chances are you won't get much of either military load, but a civilian copy such a BH works just as well.
