I just finished and tested my first build a dpms lower and a car 15 kit from model one. Everything worked great. Now I'm think of building an informal target rifle. I'm looking at a flat top with an improved trigger (probably a jewel) and a nice target scope. I want to make it as heavy as I can. I'll probably add the stock weight not sure about forend weights since it will be a free floated forearm. Are there any bull barrels that are longer than 24 inches or wider than .920- inches? Is their any other way weight could be added with out changeing the shape of the rifle much? I would like to get it close to 20 pounds if at all possibly but 15 will probably be all I can come up with. Any ideas? I would like the upper to be completely assembled also.

Thanks Mike H

I did have a very heavy AR years ago, someone made a FF tube out of .250" wall steel tubing. That one was really heavy. It had a 26" Kreiger barrel also.

Cheers,

jprifles.com (Good start for Target Barrel)
24" 1/9 Heavy Weight JPSM-24HK9T $499.00


Not sure exactly how heavy it is. I doubt you'll find something longer than 24 inches unless you go completely custom. If you got the money that JP Heavy Weight 24 incher is a good start.

YMMV

I dont think you would need a barrel out past 24"

DPMS makes what they call a "Super Bull" barrel. 24" in length, 1.14" under handguard, 1.08" at muzzle. have to use their FF tube forend (but is included in the price). weight is a very hefty 7lb-3 oz., stainless, 1/9" twist.

ETA: link to it at Brownells Super Bull
