I'm wondering what most of you guys are going with. The chome moly barrels are about 35$ cheaper. Also this will be just a toy pretty much so I'm not concerned with fragmentation so do I really need the 1/7?

i would get the chrome lined to make cleaning/maintenance easier and since its just a toy the cl would help with the high round count.

as for bbl twist i would probably just go with the 1x9 but where are you finding 1x7?

Chrome lined for sure. Makes cleaning so much easier, and the barrel does last longer.

I would go with the 1x7 twist, gives you the option of shooting heavier bullets as well as shooting the lighter stuff just fine.

you can get the 1/7 from cmmg or mstn.

Mine is 7.5" stainless 1x9

The only way you will get consistent and reliable expansion from a shorty
is if you use True Varmint bullets - soft points or ballistic nylon tips.

where did you get your stainless barrel? I have no use for expansion as this is just a range toy, so I'm leaning more towards the 1/9.

I bought the complete upper ( Flattop with railed gas block and float tube)
off a dealer at a show about a year ago , cost me $325
its totally generic but good quality and assembled well.

I even tried it out on a Full Auto Lower at a shoot this past summer , worked great
