    I put one on my MDI. Haven't really focused on accuracy yet because I was more concerned with doing the proper break-in procedure.

    Fit and finish is excellent. Might get a second one for my Modern Sporter when it arrives.

    Canadian made, a good deal, and as far as I can tell the *only* NR barrel option with a midlength gas port. Can't go wrong!

    That was a major selling point for me on this Barrel is it had a mid-length system. Since I'm going to be running a lot of reloads through this Barrel, I thought a mid-length system would be a better option, plus I prefer a shorter handguard but I still want to keep the gas block covered. There are lots of other options for rifle length 18.6 barrels. As far as I can tell this is the only 18.6 on the market with a mid-length.

    SFRC quoted me 2.2lbs. Confirmed 2.1 and change on my old kitchen scale.

    MRA makes a SS 18.6 with mid length. but its the one without the 5R rifling.

    I looked into that a few months ago when I did the build, and they were no longer offering them with a mid-length system. Maybe they started producing them again.

    I had pretty good accuracy results with mine. No verniers, but eye ball I’d say under 2” with AE bulk at 100 yards...oh and I’m a terrible shot. I don’t like accuracy testing when it’s cold out!

    Thats what i'm looking for..... maybe SFRC can do a build and shoot some Match ammo, or even Hornady Black ammo through it.

    Were all interested in potential accuracy!!
