I think we're talking Wilson Arms Company barrels.

Oh I was just providing him with a link to the barrel maker that I was gonna be using (he requested a link)...not that I have any experience with them other than the barrel I have just ordered...I think they are new to the AR barrel scene but they do meet his criteria

Ok, never hurts to check out as many barrel makers as possible.

The Wilsons are not the same. Wilson Combat makes good stuff.

Right, and the Wilson Arms barrel is middle of the road. But then so is ArmaLite.

Hey guys, can I get some input on YHM (Yankee Hill Machine Co.) barrels? Anyone use them before?

I found this barrel and thought it was at a great price. Is it too good to be true???

http://yhm.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=395:a d2fd7305840cb283d01f6d77ff2251a

Let me know.

Not my first second or third choice but I guess if you had to. At that price I think you could find a better value.
