    Hey guys, I'm tight on cash and need an upper soon that is safe act compliant for stupid nys.. Just found this one online.. I don't need the scope or bipod so I was gunna offer him 275 and I'll pay shipping..

    He says it's a black hole barrel.. Any experience from them? Quick google search showed they make the barrels for Reiner arms.. But I've never heard if them before..

    Thanks for the help

    I think all you can do is try. The barrels are good barrels. It would be nice to know what BCG it has as in a m15 mil spec or lite weight cheapy and whos upper is on it.

    Does not list a BCG so that is an additional $150. For six hundred I would build exactly what I want and be happier.

    I would say skip it.

    Looks like a two year old tried to copy someone's barrel markings.

    Most likely someone has used a upper with m4 cuts and attached a a2 cut barrel and is trying to off load a hot mess

    Ohh one more question.. Need to cut the treads off of any upper that I would buy from online so that I won't have to register with the safe act.. If I cut the threads on a barrel off how long will the actual barrel be? Are the treads included in the 16" measurement?

    Yes the threaded portion is included in the "16 overall length.

    Not sure what the length of the threaded portion is, (ain't removing my flash hider right now to find out) but I'm pretty sure removing them would put you under 16"...:eek:

    This gentleman bought an AR Stoner 18" barrel from Midway and removed the threaded portion to still be NYSAFE compliant.
