on going 7mm08 AR build


Recommended Posts

So Thanksgiving break is coming, I needed a project, I have a 2-308 and a 260 AR, so I have decided to buy a barrel Blank and make a 22 -24 in barrel for my AR10(DPMS) and chamber it in 7mm-08

not sure why just never see them...I know R25 in a 20 inch is out there but I figure with a Premium barrel and slightly longer, it may be a winner


ordered a 26 inch Shilein 1-9 twist CM Blank, I will parkerize it when finished.



barrel arrived 

barrel is a Shilein, super Match CM 9 twist
back from machine shop

this one is 22 inches
front of barrel is .845
I prepped it for blasting in the morning

just finished parkerizing, now letting it sit over night
