i was just clicking around on the armalite site and saw their SPR barrel. i want to swap in a "mid-weight" barrel on my varmint rig. this barrel is chrome lined with a 1/9 twist. i was wondering if any of you guys have ran these barrels (if so what do you think of them). i only need about 1moa to 300yds. the barrel i am swapping out is a M16a1 1/12 twist. it tends to heat up fast and won't stabilize the heavier bullets i want to occasionally shoot.

I may have a 20" SPR barrel available soon. I'm getting an almost new complete SPR rifle and considering converting it to a shorty. The guy I'm getting the rifle from sent pics of some nice groups he shot with it. You can email me at mbohmann@wi.rr.com

is it an Armalite SPR barrel you mentioned? i would like to see the pics of the groups if it is. i'm not interested in buying it, though. i prefer to break in my own brand new barrel and bolt. thanks for the offer, i appreciate it.

I've had one for awhile. Its a post ban with the pinned muzzle break. I haven't shot it past 200 yds but at 200 yds it will group around 2" with Black Hills 69 gr Sierrias.

I have one...cut it to 18" and added Phantom flash suppressor to it.

It is a solid 1 MOA barrel w/either Federal or BH 69 gr match.
