I could stand that SOB on my rifle no longer and I was too impatient to send her out for NO-BAN configuration work, so I bought a brand new Bushmaster Gov't Profile. Now I have this barrel that sooner or later will compel me to build a rifle around if I don't find a good trade.
We're talking the best of the barrels, 4150 steel, chrome-lined (complete barrel assembly only... no gas tube, handguards, nor heatshield), from a rifle that was purchased 1/03 and fired a total of 5 times: 1,000 rounds max as a LIBERAL estimate (I couldn't afford to shoot factory XM-193 & .45 FMJ and the sidearm had top priority).
This barrel can be be fitted to no ban status or it can be turned to a gov't proflile or pencil barrel. It can also be turned and chopped to an M4, carbine, or pistol profile. A brand new Bushmaster 20" (POST OR NO-BAN is $195 ($216.95 w. shipping). There were about 20 NO-BAN Gov't Profile barrels in stock at the time of my order, but a 3 week waiting list for carbine lengths!!! A good trade plus the cost of turning/chopping might be the best way to go for you!!!
I will have the barrel off within the next week depending on when my detachable front sight comes in.
I am really running this up the flagpole, so to speak. If you have something good in mind throw it my way. Otherwise I'll just have to make another rifle out of her. Thanks for tuning in to my long-winded manifesto!
