Best brands of barrels for badass builds


#1

I’d love to see your builds and hear what feedback you guys have on barrels you’ve purchased for different build types (lightweight, duty/work, range toy, etc.) to help guys make the right choice for their build.


#2

I’ve had good luck with Green Mountain and Dezarms for pencil profile retro style rifles. My next barrel might be from Lilja barrels, going custom :slight_smile:


#3

This was my first build FN Barrel and toolcraft bcg. the lower parts kit from apoc


#4

Should have gone with the APOC CHF Barrel and APOC BCG also made by Toolcraft . Just my opinion, non bias of course lol.


#5

I like apoc milspec triggers but i have to say i love the chromelined barrell…but i would never buy another one… I would only stick to nitride or chf barrels now that i have done some research


#6

We move alot of Faxon’s pencils and have gotten 100% positive feedback from customers on them.

I was going to get a Faxon gunner barrel from TNTEsales a while back but at that time the journal wasn’t long enough for a proper A2 front sight block. They’ve since lengthened it on the gunner models.

I’d love it if I could send a barrel and request a bolt face for Faxon’s ARAK system, I want to do something different than they’re currently offering but the system is so proprietary I can’t. Such is life :slight_smile:


#8

I have Faxon 16in Flame Fluted Barrel on my week old build, I am loving it so far!

look for a CHF (cold hammer forge). Also .223 Wylde chambering translates to better accuracy in my experience, while still allowing both 223 Remmy and 556 NATO ammo sources. Currently working on a CHF, .223 Wylde, 18" middy-gas, full-length free floater on Bi-Legs for as an LRP rifle setup. Probably going to convert to piston since its on pods and isn’t going to be used as an ammo-gulping mag-dumper, so handguard heat build-up won’t be an issue. Good luck with the build. Cheers
