If anybody sees 12.5 " 300 AAC or 223 barrels cheap, let me know


Recommended Posts

Well, its definitely going to be 16 or shorter. Even down to 10 would be ok. Mostly thinking 12 since I can free float a handguard full barrel length easily. This one is going to be just a "play" rifle, short range target and no other particular planned use. So i'd rather have it smaller/lighter as I'm not looking for extended accuracy


I could do it as a pistol as well rather than the carbine stock. I'm just trying to start early planning now, so I can work out getting parts as cheap as possible this time around :)

That top one in the pic I listed is a 7.5" with a Noveske KX3 on it.  That rail used to be a Midwest 10" SS rail, and I cut it down to about 8.5".  The KX3 was inside it, as a 10", by about 1/4".  CHOPPED!  <laughs>


If you run something in the 7~8" range, run a KX3 on it.  Take my word for it.  If you don't, the concussion is pretty damn awesome...

I've found a few, but still mostly in the 250-350 range. I figure I'll just keep hunting and see what I can find between now and the end of the year. The lower won't be ready till the end of June at soonest anyhow, and I need to start shooting the 308. Should finally have the lower tomorrow, ordered it in January
