Can someone tell me why these AR barrels have smaller parts to them?
Notice how it has that notch were it's thinner then continues to be thick. Are they saving weight making it look cooler?
Its known as a M203 cut.
IIRC (and I'm going from my foggy memory
) it was originally done when the military went to a heavier barrel contour, they made the cut so their existing grenade launcher mount would work with the new, heavier profiled barrel.
Worthless pretty much in a civilian AR, but It caught on nonetheless.
