Gibbs Posted August 15, 2014 Report Share Posted August 15, 2014 Not many out there. Have seen a few 5R rifles, and have a 6.8 SPC that I put together with an AR Performance 5R barrel, and wanted to see if I could find one in .308 for my new LR 308. I actually started out looking for a mid length gas barrel as I really don't like the carbine length gas in the DPMS LR308 rifle I have. So, I figured if I can look for a mid length gas system, why not look for one with 5R rifling as well. Not a lot of choices out there. Boots Obermeyer made the first 5R barrels some years back and he cuts barrels pretty deep with his barrel making machinery, rather than using button rifling. What have you all heard for 5R barrels, 16" length mid length gas systems? Ranier Arms has some, but they say "Polygon" barrels and I am not well versed on that style.
