    WO has BA's 12.3 barrel with his gas block as well for $210.00 I put his 14.7" on my first build (the wifes now) many moons ago, very accurate, nice finish with a NB barrel extension. https://www.weaponoutfitters.com/bal...n-profile.html

    I use his gas blocks on all my builds since I have BRD engineering's pinning and dimple jig. I can pin and dimple the gas block for you if you want, just cover shipping both ways...

    PA has the Triarc barrel in stock. Heard good things bout them it has a Mid-length gas system so it should be a smooth shooter... I may grab one for my next build.

    Off topic, does anybody remember a place called Rogue Tactical?? I think that was the name, he used to have an impressive line up of AR barrels. I cant seem to find the website. Not sure if I got the name wrong or they are out of buisness...

    Boiler- nicely equipped yet simple build. I like it. Probably balances well. That BA barrel looks a good option, and in stock.

    Stone-Thanks for the heads up and offer. Iíll keep it in mind.
    Ya, that Triarc /12.5/middy has me intrigued and in stock also.

    Bought the 12.5" Triarc barrel and a V7 complete upper with an inconnel gas tube. Went with the BRT comp as it works excellent on my 10.5" SBR. I have been planning this build ever since I SBR'd a second lower when the trust laws were changing. Your thread and Aragorns pushed me over the edge to get this upper done. Probably will go with the Zev wedgelock 12.5" rail as the Megas were my favorite and they are the same rail with a different name. Been wanting to do the mystic black BCG so I will grab Cryptics Bcg. Im gonna shoot the ever lovin dog shite out of this rifle so hopefully the heavy duty parts will take my abuse...

    And I missed that you are focused on a CHF/CL barrel, so that wouldn't have fit the ticket anyway. I'd add BCM to the list but of course they're OOS, too.

    That said, A BA nitride barrel will almost certainly do anything you need it to do and save you some bones: https://www.rainierarms.com/ballisti...t-barrel-12-5/

    I love my 11.5" BA build

    I'd go BA as well.

    They just had a 25% off sale for Veterans Day, so I'm assuming the Black Friday Sale will be even better. Worth waiting and checking it out.

    Nothing against BA, but there ok barrels. Had a half dozen, bottom end barrels suck imo
    Hansons are ok, have 2 here and one is a constant rust pit party and shoots ok.

    Just scooped up a 12.5Ē Criterion hybrid

    Now to decide on what rail, 11.5Ē Is ideal for maximum rail space, but a lot more options in the 10.5Ē range

    Suggestions?

    I find it hard to believe anyone would recommend BA. From my experiences they are low end trash. Out of spec chambers, gas ports drilled through lands, and pinned gas blocks that move 1/8" with the pin in place are just a few issues I e personally dealt with.

    Interesting and a bit surprising, honestly, as I haven't heard much real complaining about BA. Reflecting on it, I have two of BA's barrels and I've been happy with both, but I think i also bought them before AP purchased them so I'm guessing their production numbers were comparatively low back then given how much more popular Aero has become over the years. Perhaps they just haven't been able to maintain QC while they have grown? That's not uncommon.

    Serious question about your "gas ports drilled through the lands": Is that really a quality issue? I wouldn't expect barrel manufacturers to be precisely timing the rifling their barrels such that the gas port always hits a groove but I really have never though much about it. To your point, perhaps that's one of the details that sets top barrel manufacturers apart from the pack?

    Set email notifiers everywhere, have your money ready, and buy a damn FN barrel when it comes up. Or pay way too much for a Colt and have it chopped, or get a BCM. Those are your choices. Unless you take up making your own, its going to be a wait no matter what.

    It's a CHF, CL barrel. I thought they made them for a lot of rebranders?
