He truely is. Jarrod, thank you for making the effort to convince the marketing types to make these new configurations! You are our primary conduit to the company, so we appreciate it when we see the fruits of our requests come to life. I plan on picking up at least one of each new barrel.
Now, you need to start working on getting the A1-profile 20" barrel produced. I would by 2-3 of these in pre-ban form, and several others in the "Rifles, Uppers, Lowers, etc." forum have stated the same thing. To my knowledge, 1:9 A1 barrels have never been offered before (one of the reasons I'm picking up the 16" A1!!!), and there is definitely a market for them. Lots of folks are beginning to realize that the original LW configurations had a lot going for them, but 1:12 twist barrels (which, except for a couple of runs of 1:7s by Colt and BM, are all that are available) aren't practical for a lot of today's ammo.
Anyway, keep that in mind... :)
In the meantime, thanks again!
