Krieger Barrels or Douglas Barrels should be able to make one. You could also look for a surplus barrel off of a Mod Deuce. This should be common knowledge to someone qualified to make a gun. You might want to reconsider your build plans.

http://www.gunpartscorp.com somtimes has M2 barrels in their inventory, as Matt said though... if your "qualified" to build any gun, much less a .50 BMG, one would expect you would know your parts sources. And at the risk of sounding like a prick, your other posts are pretty elementary questions for someone planning to build a from scatch fifty cal. I agree, reconsider.

Default In the interest of fairness...

Perhaps TS is getting a list together to take to a true gunsmith and wants to have at least some knowledge of the project prior to going in so he doesn't feel like he could be "ripped off".

In defense of the forum, if this is the first time you have done something like this, I don't think a .50 ( of any sort ) is the best place to be starting your custom weapon collection.

ya i rember being elbo deep in the massive m107(formally m82), lemme tell you that you simply do not want to start learning with something that massive.... the barrel springs for the short recoil action on that thing alone have 70lbs of tension... the bolt is as thick as a child's arm.... trust me you dont want to start with a massive round like that.
