does anyone have pics of bead/abrasive blasted Stainless Steel barrels?


I've seen a few mentioned in posts, but never really paid much attention to them.

that looks good with the PRI tube! did you do that yourself or send it out? Is it blasted underneath the FF tube too? I'd asume you would just cover the muzzle crown and rear of the barrel/extension before blasting was to begin? Thanks a bunch

When I had the barrel made, I asked them to blast it. But they didnt. So someone I work with did it. I was very nervous after spending that much on a barrel! Because I got the barrel seperate, we sandblasted the whole thing front to back. Yeah, the muzzle and chamber area were covered going in.

Here's one on my M1A, shows the barrel "softened" in brightness at least. [img]http://www.hunt101.com/img/041417.jpg[/img]
