    I'd call them. They always seem to be improving their stuff, so I wouldn't be surprised if specs changed in the few years.

    Found this company while looking for a 9.5" 5.56 barrel. Don't know anything other than what's on the website.

    That's who took over Black Hole Weaponry's operation.

    Since I know nothing about Black Hole Weaponry, are these barrels any good?

    Their last few years was hit and miss. They made Rainier's original Select Barrels, and those were shooters for the most part.

    Whas there a change of ownership? I just thought the renamed / rebranded themselves.

    Note that they have a discount / outlet website as well: https://truesportingarmsllc.com/

    Rick, I don't have solid data to back this up, but I put BHW/CRA kind of in the middle. Generally better than the budget barrels but haven't earned the reputation as a top barrel maker. I think they priced accordingly. I would say the CRA is one of the least expensive custom barrel shops, so you if you want something odd or hard to find, they are a good source.

    Sionics has a very good reputation over at M4C; they're not so popular outside of there, but I've yet to hear anything negative about them, so they're arguably a bit of a hidden gem (they worked with Will Larson AKA Iraqgunz of Semper Paratus Arms for awhile, IIRC, hence the M4C connection, and Larson has always praised them). They're local to me, and have done a little work for me before, and I've been happy.

    Geissele also has an 11.5" upper that's not inordinately expensive, as does Sons of Liberty Gun Works, though I've heard of CS issues with SoLGW (though haven't heard anything bad about the guns themselves). PWS also has a budget line that could work, if you're interested in trying out a piston gun.

    I have one of the original ones on an AR. That rifle is very accurate. Easily sub MOA.

    Its an 11.5Ē but BRT has their barrels made with the Triarc rifling, per Clint (the owner) over on M4C, although they call it 6P. Chrono data Iíve found posted online shows their barrels are all pretty consistently fast, so, velocity might be closer to a 12.5Ē. Thatís internet data though so take it for whatís its worth.

    They also make the same barrel for dedicated suppressed if thatís the route youíre going.

    I know they put a lot of work into their profiles and port sizes; Iíve got the 16Ē and itís just ridiculously smooth.
