Heres another http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XATIB556M4&name=Mossberg+OEM+16% 22+.223%2f5.56+AR+Barrel&groupid=573

Neither are chrome lined if that makes any difference to you , but they are both cheap

I like the Mossberg barrel since its 1in7 twist [ I have a 1in9twist barreled carbine length already ] I want the 1in7 for stabilizing heavier grain bullets , im using 55grain bullets for hunting deer this year, don't get me wrong ,, the s.p.j l.c ammo is layin em down, I haven't had 1 go father than 10 yrds or so before eating briars and dirt, I really wanted a 1in8 but it seems im having a harder time finding a 1in8twist rate in stock that's in my price range, so ima go with the 1in7,, I really would like a 20"barrel, but when ya gotta cut corners due to lack of deneros, ya choices are limited

Penny pinching is not a good way to go with an AR, research brands and suppliers (PSA is a good start) and you will avoid many potential problems and duplicate purchases..

Palmetto state armory seems to have a decent deal (kit includes .22lr conversion kit).

Buy "premium" from PSA and you will not go wrong, I believe P-Tac is outsourced and not the same quality as the premium offerings. I have not been dissatisfied with any item I purchased from PSA.
