    Yes please get a gunner (pencil) profile barrel in.
    I don't know how or why the A2 type government profile is the go to standard.
    I don't even know why it exists to be honest.
    It's a pencil barrel for 3/4 of the length and then for no reason bloats out at the very end and this accomplishes:
    A. Nothing to reduce barrel whip and harmonics at all
    B. Adds absolute pointless weight to the very end of the barrel where it adds up and is felt the most upsetting overall balance.
    C. Wastes more material during production as the barrel has to be machined down from thicker stock and thus
    D. Likely costs more to produce and a higher retail price

    Yes I know silencers and grenade launchers....DOD/DND aint buying discount commercial barrels for NR builds....

    It serves no purpose whatsoever. It boggles my mind! Sorry for the rant....get some pencil barrels please lol
    Guns only have two natural enemies; politicians and rust.

    I want you to be pleased with your purchase, so do not hesitate one bit to ask questions before purchase! If we do decide to go forward with payment, I assume that you are satisfied with all info provided before payment. This is a polite as-is disclaimer.

    I ship at least once a week on my day off.

    OK. In that case we do not have 18.5" barrels in that contour.

    Yes exactly.
    It's been the one thing holding me back from pursuing a NR ar build with an upper lower set

    Any chance of getting them in in that config Sir?

    We will see, so far it is not an offering from any of our sources.

    That doesn't really answer my question. For instance, if you sell me something that doesn't work correctly out of the box my expectation would be that you swap it for your customer and then deal with your distributor to correct the issue. Does this align with your stores policy? IMO warranty comes into play when something fails after initially working and or when there's a defect that causes a failure. I've never dealt with your store, thus the question around policy.

    One of your competitors has them, and I've seen previously that Faxon will make pretty much any configuration if you order 50 barrels.

    We don’t have sufficient demand to order that many and our suppliers have not.
