I plan to get my 20" HBAR turned down to Government Profile. Is the 7th option down that says "Contour Barrel: AR barrel-under handguards" on this page what I want to select for Government Profile?

Also, does selecting that option automatically assume I want the Government Profile or do I need to tell them somewhere specifically that I want the government profile?

I imagine they can do whatever you want. Why dont you email them or give them a call to find out for sure.

ETA: Yes, contouring under the handguards will give you gov't profile depending on how skinny you go.

Do you know what the "M16A2 barrel" thickness is? I had no clue there were different thicknesses of Government Profile. I just figured there was one "universal" kind of thickness that was given the title Government Profile.

I actually just send them an e-mail just a few moments ago.

I dont know the exact numbers for a government profile barrel. What I meant was that a lot of people are going to a medium contour profile which is half way between HBar and gov't.

Another +1 for ADCO, I built my first AR buying most of the parts from them. Top notch operation.

You are correct in your assumption. If you want a specific thickness, just mention itin the comment section when you check out.



So if I just select the box "Contour Barrel: AR barrel-under handguards" I will be getting the "M16A2 style" government profile barrel cut?

TylerM_8, if you want government profile then in the comments box simply and easily state "I want this to be government profile" and ADCO will make it happen.
