Default SS 16" Midlength Upper Build (WIP with pics)

I was looking to build an upper with a fluted stainless steel 16" barrel and a mid length gas system. After talking on the phone with Dustin I decided to have him cut down a longer barrel he had in stock. Here's pics of the barrel work he's done. There are more photos on his Instagram account and Facebook page.
