    TRADED. THANKS! Trade my Light Barrel for your Heavy Barrel

    Would anyone be interested? It is brand new and would like a brand new one in return. There is nothing wrong with it, I just plan on adding a suppressor and would prefer a heavy barrel.

    ETA: It is 5.56 with the new gas system.

    I throw in a bunch of Federal once fire brass!

    Would you be interested in a lightly used heavy barrel that has been fluted by Adco with 6 flutes? Less that 500 rnds through it. It has the new gas system. It would have more rigidity than the light barrel and also allows the barrel to cool more efficiently (more surface area)

    Thanks but I am looking for one that hasn't been modified yet because I want to cut it down.

    Oh by the way, we are talking 5.56 here aren't we? Does your barrel have the new gas system. There is nothing wrong with my barrel, but I use my rifle for patrol and could use the extra few ounces that a light barrel would save me.

    Well it was worth a shot.

    That would have been a good trade. That would still give a shoulder to mount the flash hider/can and save some weight. If my 16" barrel didn't have a hand reamed chamber I would be all over that.

    I'd be interested, but mine is not new. I've put > 400 rnds through it...

    I've got a 5.56 light barrel, with the new gas system and about 1000 rounds through it. Interested in swaping?

    I would like to trade with someone who has a new barrel due to the fact that I have an extra $175 in mine: $125 for the fluting, $50 for the hbar option. I would consider it if you threw in 100 dollars, that way Im not taking that big of a hit. Let me know. No Wolf or steel cased ammunition has been fired through my barrel, only federal 55grn FMJ and HP's brass cased ammo.

    I could probably do that, or throw in the PWC brake that's fitted to it now. Your choice. IM me and let me know.
