    I second the Spikes suggestion an would also add in Ranier Arms. I have a Spikes in 5.56 with mid-length gas and it shoots great (1/7 twist) I also have the Rainier Arms Ultra Match in 300AAC. It is incredibly accurate.

    How are the 1:8 hybrids? I was wanting a 1:8 barrel but had the same issue with finding one that I was looking for in stock.

    How about the hybrids !! Its not a heavy barrel, its not a thin barrel. It a type of mid weight . Not sure what to say except the one ar15 I have seen shooting groups caused me to pick the criterion barrel for my build. I don't need a heavy bull barrel and did not want a m4 profile. I did want a 1-8 and a 223 wylde chamber. Go to brownells site and look at the photos of the different barrel weights of the criterion barrels. Maybe its what you want or maybe not.
