Default looking for info on this barrel

Model 1 Sales: 5.56 24-inch Tactical Barrel

I like the look of it, but how does it perform.

Do any of you know of some thing like this.

24" black heavy barrel fluted/threaded

I want some thing like this but I wander if it would be as good as my 24" stainless bull barrel.....wich Is very heavy.

If this barrel or one like it could do the same as my bull barrel (cold bore) than it would be nice to lose some weight and make it possible to shoot from the shoulder

I wouldn't do chrome lined in a barrel geared toward accuracy.

White Oak Armament might produce better results for you.

I don't know about the other guys but I tend to shy away from anything over 20" for a 5.56/.223 barrel, to heavy and IMO no real benifit over an 18" SPR type rifle.

One area I simply don't want to scrimp on is, obviously, the barrel. I think I've limited it to one of three.

That's the three I am currently looking at. Any recommendations/complaints about those companies/barrels?

Not what he meant. The inside of the barrel itself is chromed to assist with bullet flight and barrel length, not saying the barrel is chromed.

It looks like you missed the most important part of the description on the Model 1 website...that is an ER Shaw barrel. From what I've seen, read, and heard ER Shaw barrels are known for shooting MOA right out of the box.

vmkeith, would you go for the barrel I selected above or one of the following?

Model 1 Sales: 6.8 Rem SPC Dissipator Barrel

Anyone else wants to chime in, I'm all ears. I consider this the heart and soul, because if the barrel sucks you can't hit a fat chick at a candy aisle.

No I wouldn't. If you are looking to get a 6.8 SPC I would recommend AR Performance, Bison Armory, or Noveske. Having the correct barrel specs is important with this caliber and those three do it right and contribute to the development and advancement of the round performance.

Also, for anybody interested in the 6.8 SPC I would google 68forums and start reading all the info.

I know I don't want chrome lined, and yes I was asking about E.R.Shaw, im thinking of making my precision rifle lose some weight.

Hence heavy profile instead of the bull barrel I got now.

That said I was only asking if some one knew how much of a difference I would get going from a 24" bull barrel, to a 24" heavy fluted barrel.

Also going from stainless to carbon steel.

I really like the look of this barrel. Just the look, and weight, not the chrome lined. Also I want a threaded muzzle for the suppressor I will be investing in.

Difference in what...ballistics? Accuracy? There shouldn't be a big change in ballistics...muzzle velocity increase or decrease will depend on twist rate and type of rifling as you are only swapping out a barrel of the same length. Accuracy wise, I wouldn't be concerned with ER Shaw, they are good barrels. But, if it's a big concern for you, you might be better off looking at something from White Oak Armament...just my 2 cents.
