Id like to build a retro looking m16a1 wannabe
looking for a 20" pencil barrel thats chrome lined
(plenty of molys out there)

alls i really need is the barrel i can source everything else and assemble.
alot of searching has proven nothing.

Ah, never mind, you wanted chrome-lined. Well, if you can't find one, consider having it nitrided. It's a better option, anyway.

20", skinny profile, chrome lined, 1:12 twist. Just like the originals.

It may be a glitch in the system. Or they may be swamped from all the sales going on the last few days. Give them a call. Or you can cruise gunbroker and try to find one that way. I founs an A1 upper on there for around $200 a while back. The A1's don't get any love some times, and you can get them cheap occasionally.

those green mountain barrrels... real nice, but called and back ordered.

also- big problem, no drill for taper pins, would have to use a set screew front sight (lame)

im still on the lookout but its not looking good.

a1 upper, any twist, chrome chamer/bore, actual light profile with a .625 gas block that affixes with taper pins (mil spec)

All stripped barrels you'll find will not be predrilled, unless you find a complete barrel assembly with a FSB/ GB already pinned in place.

I have used the 16" A1 chrome-lined barrel by Double Star before. Brownell's sells them, and they come complete with the FSB, though I don't remember how it was attached. I think it was pinned. But alas, it is only a 16" barrel.
