I've decided that I need a new barrel for my AR. I bought the rifle used, and new it had some chamber issues, but this is rediculous. Every round that I've tried has FTE problems b/c the chamber has an unfixable set of scratches.

Anyways, Bushy has too long of a wait. I was told 6-8 weeks, 6-8 weeks ago, and now it looks like I can't get one till fall. Well, sorry Bushy, but you lose my business on this purchase. What are some other options for a Post-ban 16" barrel w/ a 1/9? I'd like a muzzle break, but that's not a deciding factor.

I've looked ar RRA off of www.adco.com, and I'm not sure if I can just buy the barrel, or if I need to go w/ a new upper all together. Everything else w/ the rifle is great, just the chamber sucks ass right now. Let me know what are some good options to go w/. I'd like to have it on my gun in less than a month.

Thanks in advance,

ADCO should have whatever options you are looking for. You might also try polishing your chamber, the worst that happens is it stays screwed up.

Change the barrel, no need for complete upper, unless that is the way you want to do it, though more $. Try a fella that post as RADDAD, he indicated he might have spare barrels, he wanted to trade parts with me.

Try Brownells. I bought a 20' DPMS barrel from them that listed around $130 last year. Their on-line catalog will list if it is in stock or not. [url]www.brownells.com[/url]
