    So I decided to change my 300blk build out for a .223/5.56 mainly because of ammo and I'd like to run the 300 suppressed and cannot at the moment. Does anyone know where I can get a 16" .223/5.56 barrel at? I've looked on all of my usual websites and the only one I have really found was 320 which isn't bad since it was Mid-length and had the A2 sight already installed, I just haven't heard of the brand sonics? I think that's what it was

    I've seen some bravo company barrels in stock, I think their 14.5. Idk about 16". Palmetto state armory also regularly has stripped barrels up, not now though. Good luck

    I checked PSA and they were all out of stock. I'll have to check bcm and DD

    I've been looking for a barrel too, every time I see one I'm always to late to pull the trigger and am a little short on cash in my firearm fund. Stripped uppers are hard to find to... Rough time to build

    I got a stripped upper from midway that is on back order. It's a DD for 130 that comes in to their warehouse on the 27th. And I just placed an order from BCM for the mid length 14.5" light weight barrel for 231

    Well if I ever sell one of my stripped lowers I may be able to complete my second build, glad you got a barrel.

    How much are you looking to sell one for? I may know someone who's interested

    Way too much, guy offered me 450 today and I couldn't part with it. It would break up my pair of consecutive s/n spikes spiders. I'm hoping I won't have to sell it, but it would be the quick route.

    I hadn't gotten a blackout barrel. I was at the gun show today but decided to go the .223 route earlier in the week

    Well I got my barrel in today. I went with a BCM 14.5" Mid length 1/7 twist. Now I just need my upper to get here
