    These are all 5.56 chambered, 1:7 twist, 4140, chrome lined with a Phosphate finish. Overruns from Colt Military contract, straight off the factory floor, no markings
    Bunch of guys here shooting them. They shoot excellent. @dogmatix got the last 11.5 and is getting great groups with it.

    Yep, the 11.5" shoots 0.60 MOA with 65gn Sierra Gamekings and 77gn Sierra Tipped Matchkings straight out of the box.

    The 75gn Hornady steel cased HPBT factory ammo shoots 0.9 MOA.

    Glacial, as only loading to .223 specs. 2500 fps. Could go hotter.
    I wanted a short barreled AR that fits in my day pack and this is perfect.

    'May' have something. But won't be M4. Will have to check twists
    I do have a 16 A1 pencil dissipator barrel also if anyone's interested

    Cheers @Spanners my understanding is that there will be a new service rifle standard with a 16inch non-pinned free float barrels to match the LMTs. I don't think a dissapator will make the standard it and I understand they have trouble with some .223 loads. I am assuming a carbine or mid-length will probably be OK as LMTs are suppose to be mid-length. Hard to make a decision off a rumor but there you have it. Besides everyone needs a 5.56 AR and I don't have one at the moment.
