Hello,

Just had some thoughts today. Anyone know of a manufacturer of carbon fiber AR barrels? If so, do they have the "standard" options (i.e. length, twist rate, threading for comps, etc.)?

My dream right now would be:

18" Carbon Fiber/SS, 1:8, threaded for a JP - Bennie Cooley Comp w/ Rifle Gas system

Any info is appreciated.

Check out ABS.

TWL is a rep for them and a member of this board.

The CF barrels are absolutely amazing.

Extremely accurate.

Extremely light weight.

Extreme heat dissipation.

and

EXTREMELY COOL.

Can you tell that I've been working all night and I'm EXTREMELY tired.

Here's a pic of my ABS barreled carbine.


It is a 1:7 16" mid-length, with a PRI QC Comp.
I'm thinking of trying out the Cooley Comp.

ABS is the king of Carbon Fiber. CS is some of the best in the industry, and my results with the barrel I received have been extraordinary.

Contact Mike at ABS, and he'll hook you up.

Oh yeah, mine's a 16" middy Rock Creek 5R 1/7 blank with a wylde chamber, and is threaded. The bore on mine has been CeraKoted by Fit4Duty, It's a badass build.

Tom,

I would like to know how they have held up over long rapid fire sessions (i.e. 50-60 rounds) and then how the groups have held up over say from the first 10,000 rounds to the next 10k. I'm in love with Oly barrels right now as with my accuracy/3-Gun load, they shoot sub-0.5 MOA (w/ 69gr. SMK's and Varget, no case prep and standard WSR primers).

I'll PM you some more though.

Thanks in advance,
