View Full Version : Olympic Arms barrel opinions

10-03-2009, 7:58 AM
I now have a spare upper with what I believe is an Olympic Arms nonchromed 1:9 heavy barrel ( I am not certain, I cant see the barrel marking because of the freefloat tube). I am thinking about building a lower for it but I am not all that fond of all of the weight of the barrel. I still have my original 20" Colt normal contour barrel that is all but unfired. Is the Olympic a good barrel that I should keep on the upper? Should I attempt to change the barrel myself or should I have someone that is actually competent do it? lol

Thanks to Vin496 I found a "how to" video so the only question is are Olypics good barrels?
