I want to get a government profile barrel for my Bushmaster 20" A2 but I'm worried I will lose accuracy. I use it for target shooting and as a carry rifle in the woods on my grandfathers land. Do you think I would miss the weight?

-What is the difference in accuracy between an HBAR and a Government Profile Barrel?
-Is a Governement Profile Barrel worth it?
-Where is a good place to get my HBAR cut down? ADCO?

Sorry about having so many questions.

My gov profile is not as accurate as my h-bar and strings the group quite a bit as it heats up. The difference in weight and handling is much better though. Both 20". I felt my H-bar was to heavy when I first built it but after getting used to it and shooting it I'm happy with it.

One other question. Under rapid fire conditions, is it easier to control with an HBAR or gov't profile? I figure the gov't profile would have a little more recoil but would be easier to control because of the weight.

I changed out the barrel from a HBAR to a government profile. My groups opened up slightly. However SimplyDynamic used a government profile bushmaster to make some amazing shots during the battle of al Najaf in Iraq.

With an HBAR your rifle will be front heavy. With the gov profile your weapon will be more balanced and thus will be easier to use. I find that the gov. profile is easier to control while in a standing or kneeling. The HBAR rules on the bench.

Should I (A.) just go ahead and get ADCO to cut my HBAR down to a Government Profile? or (B.) I plan on making an A4gery. Should I just get that in Government Profile and see how I like it and then decide what to do to the HBAR on my current AR?

+1 for B

You already have an HBAR. Why get another of the same?? I currently have a HBAR, and my gov't upper is on its way. Both have their uses. My HBAR shoots .5-1 MOA w/ everything I feed it, and my gov't will be strictly for hunting.
