Spook, has been commissioned for the barrel build. 16", 8 twist, stainless, carbine gas system, for DPMS LR-308. The plan is to make it cycle with out help, I will be using an adjustable gas system to regulate the full power ammo.

Stainless is not better than nitrided chrome moly steel, and AAC barrels are match grade. Also, AAC barrels are engineered to a drawing based on having the actual Remington 700 action drawings, and with the threads that are compatible with sound suppressors. If I said who makes them, our competitors would make a beeline for the same company and skip years of expensive testing I had to do to find who was best.
Do you make em for a Savage pre-fit?

Obviously it wouldn't work with the group buy or??

Thanks,

Glad to see this board is back.

The 1-7 twist 16" DPMS LR 308, has been up and running
for a while now.
The barrel blank I used was a 1-7 PAC-NOR stainless super match.
The barrel was turned and chambered by Spook.
Gasport drilled at .120" in the carbine position, regulated with a
Micro-MOA 3 position govna. I can run supers, supersonic suppressed, and
Light weight subs and still cycle.

My current bullet that I am using for sub work is
the 285gr Outlaw State Bullets subsonic expander.
