    Are you looking for just the barrel or a whole upper already assembled?

    already threaded. 1/2x28

    im using one in my carbine. if your getting one also get a charging handle in their gunfighter series small medium or large my pref is medium. and one of their superb bcg.

    not the barrel i linked is a middy not a carbine.

    my pref is for midlength in a 16inch barrel it replicates the smooth impulse of a 20 inch barreled rifle. i think the carbine length is too harsh and more difficult to control than a good setup using a middy or rifle length.

    if you want carbine length (bleh) you give up hammer forged and the smoother recoil impulse. for a shorter less useful handguard length. cost in weight is maybe an ounce or so savings on a carbine length. maybe less depending on the handguard used.

    my wife had a carbine length gas system tried mine and asked me if i could make hers more fun to shoot like my carbine was...

    she could tell the diff and doesnt really know anything about ar15 other than how fun they are
