why doesnt any major company make lightweight 20" barrels? I would like one in 1/9.

don't say the model 1 16" either,I want to build an ultralight a3.

just read the next thread about 18", who is this JP that has 20" Intermediates? are they a simple tapered barrel or government profile?

Thats a good start but what about a 1/9 A1 profile is that made anywhere?

Ive yet to see one. The A2 Govt is pretty light.

I've got a 20" Colt A1 pencil thin barrel in 1:7". I bought it years ago from J&T. Mine isn't for sale but some of them may still be floating around.

The only 20" lightwieght barrels I know of are orignial 1/12" parts. You may have success with getting an A2 turned down to A1 profile.

I got one of the 20" Bushmasters with crowned barrel for my postban "perfect" rifle. I'm still breaking the barrel in but it's more than accurate enough for me. The weight is just outstanding compared to all those HBAR's I've got. I mated it to Bushmaster upper assembly and it now sits on my designated marksmen rifle. I moved the mounting hole 1.25" aft to improve the view though the ACOG. [img]http://photos.ar15.com/ImageGallery/Attachments/DownloadAttach.asp?iImageUnq=14782[/img]
