I asked this question in a different forum area but now i want to expand and elaborate on the topic in this thread.
90 days ago i placed my order for a standard ar kit minus stripped lower. When i called to check on it, i was told that there was a problem getting barrels. Dave told me that he was unable to get barrels due to the manufacturer not wanting to send barrels, only wanting to send complete units. He told me he would go ahead and send everything except the barrel, then ship the barrel later.
I got my kit and there was a barrel in the package. This barrel is SUPER HEAVY. Since there was some problem getting the barrel that i thought came with the normal complete kits, is this an HBAR, or an Xtra HBAR, or is this considered a bull barrel? The diameter at the muzzle is 23/32" and about 1" under the handguards. It seems to weigh about 3 pounds. Is this a chromemoly barrel? Is this the 'standard' barrel that gets sent with the kits?
