Welcome Criterion Barrels to the 308AR family

Recommended Posts

http://criterionbarrels.com

The latest addition to our growing family! For those of you who don't know about me, I have LOOOONG said that the Criterion (Fulton Arms "Titan") 16" Rifle length barrel is one of the best ideas for the .308 AR on the market. This is yet only one of many great, and well thought out, products. Criterion is hands down a top shelf company, and a MUST for any high end rifle.

I'm very excited to see Criterion stepping out on their own, and double excited to see them utilize our community to get the word out on their products.

Maybe this will give us some leverage to get the 16" rifle-gas barrel produced with some regularity.  Hell, I'd be in for two of them, right off the bat.  The perfect barrel.  <thumbsup>

Those of you running the 16" w/ rifle gas, do you see a necessity for a adj gas block? Or is this setup good to go without?

 

  Mine works with no problems with std low pro gas block .

Mine seems to be functioning fine without, but I had it on a healthy diet of FGMM 168's. I just bought a few hundred rounds of xm80c and will report back after I get it fired off.

an adjustable can only turn down the gas. that long gas system will most likely not be over gassed, so you probably wouldn't have any need for an adjustable.

Was what I was thinking.

 

I was going to purchase a slr railed adj gas block, for mounting same plain iron sights as an option.

I may buy a pri ar10 height railed GB though....?

Good to know. I talked via pm on FB with BHW they said they could make me a 16" w/ rifle gas, was thinking .750" but I may go w/ the heavier profile(.875").

Do you know if the railed pri block is the same plane as the DPMS high? I have a mega maten.

 

I wrote to mega asking them if the pri was compatible.

mega should be old/high DPMS so the ar10 rail should be right. the new/low DPMS would use a regular Ar15 height.

the shorter barrel will already be relatively "stiffer" than a longer barrel of the same diameter. might as well save some weight and go with the .75

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

I apologize for the delay in our response, but we have been pretty busy over the last week or two with SHOT Show. We're looking forward to getting our .308 stock model barrels up and running, and might be partnering with a few additional .308 AR manufacturers over the course of 2015 as well!

Feel free to send us a PM or email us at contact@criterionbarrels.com with any questions regarding our upcoming product launch. It looks like a good number of you are interested in a rifle length 16" barrel, so I'll see what I can do about running that configuration by the boss!
