Now that I look at it, mid-length barrels from ADCO are $195...for gov't profile +$55, that's $250. If you want a larger profile than gov't you can always go to ADCO and get one for cheaper than the barrels in this group buy. That's why we need to go light; there are already quality heavy and semi-heavy barrels out there...there isn't a relatively high demand for them, and there is plenty of supply to meet the demand.
There AREN'T any light mid-length barrels out there, so if we can choose the profile as you say we need to go gov't. I would actually prefer gov't under the handguards, and a little thinner than gov't (but thicker than under the HG) for the rest past the FSB.
I counted how many people would prefer it gov't or lighter:
Knightone, M4arc, G-Code, SinnFein, Mike_L, yakrat101, Corporal_Chaos, norman74, mongo001, ralbano, Variable556, SULACO2, KBL, BookHound, and, of course, me.
Any chance that you could make a deal so that you could have the company make 2 different profile barrels? Say, .750 all around and gov't? If not, I'm in if its gov't.
