thanks! do you know what the dimensions are, so i can turn down an HBar to match?

Perhaps you might ask Compass Lake Engineering since they make SPR barrels...

No need to be sorry, I was correct, they do make them, I just didn't say for who...

MSTN, Do the SPR barrels used by the military have either a chrome lined chamber or a chrome lined bore? I'm guessing not, since it is a stainless steel barrel and I assume they are striving for maximum accuracy. How do they address issues of reliability? Are they match-chambered or NATO chambered? Thank you.

MSTN, Thanks for the info. I was under the impression that the military was fairly fanatical about chrome-lining after early experience with the A1 in Vietnam. I would suppose that the operators of these weapons could be counted on the provide better than average maintenance on their rifles. I've read that a "tight" Match chamber could be a reliability issue in the field. A Wylde style chamber that still has generous NATO dimensions but a shorter throat for better accuracy shouldn't have any reliablity problems. How is the weight of the SPR barrel compared to the 20" A2?
