On one of my AR-15's the barrel is marked SS 5.56 just forward of the sight. Any of you Guru's come across a barrel like this and give any information on it ? It is not a stainless barrel, at least a magnet sticks to it. Thanks

Those are the barrel markings of Olympic Arms stainless steel barrel. How strong does the magnet stick?

Magnet doesn't stick at all to my stainless Mini-30 but sticks hard to this barrel. The whole rifle is a light gray (Essential Arms). No markings (cast symbol on carry handle by rear sight) like I see on most uppers.

Bat21, move this to the 'Rifle, uppers, lowers & barrels' forum, you'll get a better answer. The only thing I can think is that the SS isn't 100% SS.
