    Ar15 SPR HELP

    I finished my ar build about 6months ago. Nothing fancy. Just standard ar15.

    Now I want to build another upper for it.
    And I am wanting to do a spr/dmr build with it.

    Free float. 20inch bull barrel. But I want a good accurate barrel under $150. I would prefer stainless but would be willing to listen to opinions. Rifle will get wet. I live by the ocean. But I keep it clean.

    I have my upper and forend choosen. And gas block. Just need barrel ideas

    Save up another $120 and call White Oak Armament.

    $150 for a 20" that is quality is counting on finding a closeout sale.

    Make sure gas ports are compatible with the gas block you have.
    Some 20" are set up for front sights.
    White Oak Service Rifle Barrels are like that.
    It takes the sight lost or their clamp on block.
    If you want fluting it will be $300+.

    I agree that White Oak is the best. If you can eat Top Ramen for a month and save your money, then thats the way to go. You will get the profile, material, and twist rate you want from one of his barrels. Barrels under $150, your giving up something.

    But I will say, I've had very good luck with Anderson Manufacturing barrel's. I have the 20" HBAR on my personal rifle and its a 3/4-1 MOA shooter now. I say now, because I'm currently working up a load for this gun and hope to get it to 1/2-3/4MOA. My son's rifle we went with the 18" stainless SBR barrel. I've only shot 1-2 groups with this rifle and I've been happy with it. I believe I cold also get that barrel shooting under 1 MOA with work.

    The 18" I have https://www.andersonrifles.com/produ...raight-flutes/
    The 20", But I have the non threaded version. I guess they don't make it anymore https://www.andersonrifles.com/produ...l-1-9-twist-2/
    I redefined trust between my wife and I. Bought her a gun, hand loaded ammo for it, showed her how to shoot it, and made her the beneficiary on my life insurance.

    Phosphate. Chromed lined are desgined to fire lots and lots of rounds, but they're not known for their accuracy.

    Look at xcaliber. They have 416 as well as chrome/molybdenum steel. Price is the same. Excellent performing barrels, available any way you could imagine.

    That is my upper. It has a heavy profile barrel. Not the standard. It does not taper under the forend.
    I shaved my front sight post. What if I add a free float forend?
    How must would that help? I shoot 55g fmj hornady
