Default blackhole weaponry barrel

Does anyone have any experience with these? What are the pros/cons of the 3 groove polygonal rifiling? I've heard that it is more accurate than normal rifiling is thos the truth?

Anyone have any idea on the quality or accuracy of these at all?

Only by reputation. I have not had the honor of shooting one....yet.

They have a very good reputation for accurate match grade barrels, and good customer service.

They are also very reputable and knowledgeable. I've personally called them and talked about having a custom made barrel for my AR. Their prices are fair for a match grade barrel but you can find the more popular styles for cheaper from dealers. They are willing to customize make just about anything you want.

The only thing bad about them is their lead times. When I spoke to them about 6 months ago, their lead times were 8-12 weeks.

Yeah I know I found one for $80 less than they were selling them on their own site. I was thinking since I could get a free upper included from surplus ammo I might as well get one then. I thought it was a super good deal. $220 for an 18" barrel with mid length gas system and the the upper for that price.

Not a bad price at all. I have a few friend who have them and they are very accurate.

I'm in then, I just wanted to make sure they weren't some fly by night joke of a company. I've heared stories before of companies that seemed legit but were basically a scam

My son has one and he got it from Surplus Ammo. He said it's accurate, and likes the set up.
