Quality and Economical Barrel Sources
 
Hey fellow builders! I thought we could do a little source sharing in the barrel department.

We all know that a good barrel is a big part of a good rifle and I've decided to go with an upper tier barrel on my next build, well on one of my currents :). . . Which is somewhat ironic, because a majority of the parts that will be on/in this rifle were bought "blemished", clearance, etc. So I'm running really low on my budget.

JD turned me on to these folks:

White Oak Armament

I believe I will be going with a 16"-18" assembly and will be sending my upper off to them for installation.

So. . .

What's your favorite barrel source???

I'm getting a parts list for my first build, So I am very interested in this thread.
FWIW, We are doing a group budget build with our local group.

J and T Distributing, they sell ER Shaw and Wilson Combat barrels, whatever flavor you want. Good prices too, haven't found better yet. And they will port, flute, do whatever you want to them for a little extra charge.

Right on. Thanks Squirrel! Definitely a +1. I just sent White Oak Arament an e-mail with my flavor request. . . an 18", Rifle length gas, w/ picatinny block. We'll see what they come up with.

I purchased a WOA barrel from Rainier Arms for $279. It was very accurate.

Midway has a DD 16", 1x7, chrome lined, carbine length for $170.00. I have 2.

Most users report the gas port needs to be slightly enlarged to .063". Easy to do with a 1/16" drill bit.
