I think Noveske is good, but you mainly paying for a name more than anything else.

In my experience, Noveske does a pretty good job of keeping the "crap" out of his guns. It really doesn't matter who makes what for him, as long as they make it right.

You can get Pac-Nor barrels with the pseudo-polyganol rifling like Noveske, though, but they aren't exactly the same.
There's no magic in Noveske's assembly process. They simply do it right with quality parts.

They don't manufacture there own receivers, that's done by JD Machine. Really the only parts that are theirs are the barrels. Which is made at Pac-Nor's facility but to Noveske specs and with their tooling.

Hey guys I just left Turner's Outdoorsman and was informed by their gun department that they now carry Noveske rifles. I thought this was pretty cool and their all California compliant.

To speak in non-technical terms, there are 2 main aspects of what makes a barrel accurate. The barrel blank is like the foundation on a house. You need a solid foundation in order for you to build a solid home. There are many barrel blank manufacturers in the business. Some are good and some are excellent. After the foundation, you need a competent gunsmith to turn the barrel, chamber, drill the gas port, etc. So a competent gunsmith is equivalent to a competent contractor. When you have a solid foundation and a competent contractor, you will be able to build a quality home (tack driving barrel).

No one in the gun industry for the most part makes all their parts.No manufacturer of AR's makes ALL the parts that go into their guns. Not Colt, not LMT, not Armalite, not Bushmaster, Not DPMS, not ANY of them. The difference comes from the choice of alloys used and the inspection and quality control during manufacturing and assembly.
When Colt or FN rejects a batch of parts because they don't meet the standards that the military requires, they return those parts to the supplier. Do you think that supplier throws those parts away? No way. Those parts get sold to some other AR "manufacturer" that is further down the food chain, and end up in somebody else's rifle.

True, my point is that you can purchase from another manufacture or piece it together yourself with the same quality parts and not have to pay extra solely for the name that's on it.

The unspoken match-grade tolerance in the barrel-making arena is 2/10ths of a 1000th concentricity, a uniformity of bore diameter from muzzle to breech that John Noveske requires in his barrel specifications. BTW, its not just name alone that you are buying. John put alot of time, money and effort into the barrel making process. ;)

Thanks.. I was about to purchase a HK SL8-6, but changed my mind due to lack of options for it.

You are paying for much more than a name my friend. Those that cant afford it will be jealous, like always. You've got a great gun coming to you.

This is the reason I don't visit the centerfire section anymore, too many squabbling idiots.
