Do you folks know of any manufacturer of CM barrels for AR15's that would run 18", 1/8 twist, and set up for mid-length direct imp. gas systems? I am looking for a standard carbine-weight contour and without a grenade launcher cut if I can get it. What say you? Thanks....

This is probably the closest barrel you'll find without having one made:

These aren't 18" but I wouldn't be surprised if these custom manufacturers could get you what you are looking for.

That rainier 18" is probably the closest to what you are asking for.

I heard Noveske would be more than happy to build one for you, just shoot them an e-mail and ask :rolleyes:

Just kidding!

But the links provided above from previous posters are good places to start, good luck!

BCM has rifle length 18" barrels with a 1/8 twist BCM (http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/AR-15-18-Rifle-Upper-Group-s/158.htm). Noveske is all an excellent choice too Noveske (http://noveskerifleworks.com/cgi-bin/imcart/display.cgi?cat=158). I think that you're going to need a 16" or shorter if you want a mid-length barrel.

One other option from Black Hole Weaponry. If you order through Surplus Ammo & Arms, you get a free stripped upper.
