bushmaster has these kind of barrels on his catalog. I think you need a special order to have the 1/7 twist.

14.5''


16''

Whoops looks like you missed the Bushmaster Group Barrel buy.... That was the barrel that was offered (in 16") that only a few of us ended up ordering.

I already did. Very nice barrel, but it wasn't any more accurate with my 75gr Black Hills than my 1:9 twist barrels were. So I traded it for another Bushy M4 profile barrel.

I tried CMMG, they couldnt help me. The Operator barrel is midlength, I need a carbine length gas system. This will more than likely go off to Lietner Wise for a gas piston conversion.

Why not order the profile you want from Noveske or Randall Rausch? It will take a little longer but then you can have it exactly the way you want AND virgin to boot, which will allow LW to drill the gas port in their fixture.

Are you SBRing it or perm attaching a FH?

I wasnt aware of any custom barrel makers that were willing to do chrome lining. I would rather have the durability of chrome on a general purpuse rifle.

Unfortunately no one makes a barrel with those specs. If you can live with the M203 cut you have several choices like LMT, Colt or the new BCM barrels.

Wait for SHOT. JNR has somethign that fits your bill to a T that he's cooked up for the DMR.
