View Full Version : AR15 Barrle - No Markings, Name, Serial #

12-02-2011, 9:19 AM
Went to the local gun store to look for a new barrle. Saw one that had not markings, brand name, caliber size, and twist info. I asked the sales guy and he said "Its a 6.8, 1/11 twist, 18 inch, and it is a brand name barrle" word for word. I didn't want a debate but I left it alone:rolleyes:. Anyhow just got me thinking where did it come from? Home made or one of those made cheap to sell cheap companies? Military? Black market? Illegal or legal? Any insight will be great cause I am looking to get a 6.8 upper or build one.

There is no way to know unless you are the person who ordered the barrel from the manufacturer.

There is no requirement to mark barrels though.

I highly doubt it's homemade. Lots of manufacturers contract out to larger builders and don't mark the barrels. It's probably someone you've heard of, and there's usually no need to serialize a barrel.
