Which one should I get? I concerned that if I get the M4 profile there will be heat/accuracy issues and the muzzle will be heavy since I plan to put a shorty look CAR15 flash hidder on it. Am I being paranoid?

M4 unless you have a Full Auto

I've got a 16" HBAR and IMHO it balances too far forward with a short stock. I'm considering having the barrel turned down some. You're worried about accuracy from a 16" rifle?

M4 all the way - there are no accuraccy issues and since these barrels are used on full-auto guns why worry about heat when they don't.

Another vote for the M4 profile - you WILL NOT miss the extra weight.

This might convince you:

I made the mistake of a heavy 16 barrel. By the time I added an Aimpoint, back up sites, Surefire, etc., it got real heavy. M-4

I have the Bushy 16" post-ban M4, and I love it!

The balance of the rifle is great, and I have had no accuracy issues.

Cheers,
Chris

I would say that's all the info you need.

Light weight is a underrated.

M4 for sure. As far as the heat goes, the M4 handgaurds are specificly for heat protection.

Did I mention, go with the M4? You'll be glad you did.

As I heard (saw) someone say before (I think it was Troy actually) "Heavy barrels are just that, HEAVY."

Those M4 handguards I bought from Gunsmoke really work well! I can get that barrel smoking, and still comfortably hold onto the guards. The best money I have ever spent on an AR accessory.

Cheers,
Chris

You can order the heavy barrel gun with fluted barrel which reduces weight and aids in keeping barrel cooler through larger surface area.

Heavy barrels suck!.

If any of you wimps ever went to the gym and pumped a little iron instead of tickling your keyboard all day, maybe that whole extra pound of barrel wouldn't make you all tired and cranky. [>Q]

If you have a preban AR-15, I personally am happy with the standard 14.5" M-4 barrel with a Vortex flash hider permanently attached for a total 16" barrel. No flash signature plus compact.

LMAO Dave, shesh, I just want to see how light a lightweight barrel is. I have a HBar on my Bushy right now. I'd like to see if an M4 barrel makes it more balanced with the telestock

Why would any normal person want a m4, when a 20 inch hb is so much more accurate, in terms of control?......to each his own.....but it`s nice to know you can hit what you`re aiming at unless YOU fuck-up!........

OH YEAH......IT HAS TO BE----"PRE BAN"..also...............
