Got my Addax/BHW dissy barrel in the mail today! Looks great, and MUCH lighter than my DPMS barrel. For $199 (I bought early and got it for $190 ), it's a great deal. I need to get a scale that'll read light weights; ghetto measuring it on my bathroom scale (take my weight, take my weight with barrel, find difference) it's about equal to or a little lighter than my WOA SDM-R barrel (20" with the 12 deep flutes; 2lbs, 9oz).

Specs on the bbl:

I'm waiting for funds and parts to come in so I can complete this thing, but I temporarily cannibalized some parts from my SDM-R so I can test it out this weekend. I'll post pics tomorrow when I get the stock on it.

Parts List:
  • Spikes Lower, DPMS Upper
  • VLTOR Gunfighter CH, LMT M16 Bolt Carrier Group
  • Addax/BHW 16" Rifle Gassed Dissy bbl (1/8, SS)
  • VLTOR A5 Stock kit in FDE (Pinned for featureless; should arrive tomorrow)
  • PRI Gas Block (Kies Adjustable Gas Block should arrive next week)
  • YHM Diamond muzzle brake (Rainier Extreme Mini Comp to be ordered later)
  • YHM Diamond rail (to be replaced with Troy 13" FDE Battlerail Bravo next week)
  • TA11F ACOG (to be replaced with Vortex SPARC shortly)
  • Solar Tactical grip fin, KAC knockoff handstop
  • Standard LPK (Geissele SSA to be ordered)

...and then I'll either buy one of those DIY duracoat kits, or find someone who can help me do the upper and lower receivers for cheap.
