    Are the "HBAR" and "Target" model same r

    I did a side by side comparison of two rifles yesterday. They are both Colt AR-15's (.223) with the long barrel and they both have a 1/7 twist rate. One is marked as a "Sporter Target" model, the other is marked as a "Sporter HBAR" model. Visually these two rifles appear to be the same. What are the differences in the two of them and does one have an advantage over the other

    Thanks!

    Hbar= heavy barrel,

    Sporter= sporter weight barrel,

    Rigger
    I hate to be the cruel hand of reality slapping you across the face but, someone has to do it.

    Life's hard, buy a helmet. You're not going to get coddled around here so get over it.
