View Full Version : Where to find an inexpensive 1/12 barrel and upper?

I'm thinking about building a budget upper to use with my Ciener kit.

1/12 gives me stability with M193 and 1/12 should be pretty close to optimal for 22LR Minimags and Fed Bulk so I think it's a pretty decent compromise.

I'd like to try do it on the cheap though and since I'll be shooting 22LR 95% of the time, I don't mind using a cheaper barrel.

So far, I've only found CMMG to be carrying 1/12 barrels but they are 20". I was hoping to find a 1/12 16" barrel if they exist which I'm not sure they do.

White Oak also seems to have a 18" 1/12 barrel but kinda pricey.

Sources guys? Surplus parts anywhere?

CMMG has a lightweight 16" barrel with 1:12 twist too.

Hmm don't see it on their site for a 16" 5.56mm 1/12 barrel.

nvmd, i see it's available as a complete upper
