    WTT: AR Barrel.

    Anyone got a 16" (or any length really) mid-length barrel in a Gov't profile or lightweight profile that they'd consider trading for a 12" mid-length DD barrel with a heavier profile behind the gasblock?

    Barrel started its life as a 16" Daniel Defence mid-length and was cut down by Scott Trail in 2014. Had about 800 rounds down tube, so just broken in. I think it's what you call a NATO heavy contour?

    It's for a rifle that I carry more than I shoot, so just looking to lose some weight.

    Haha... a bit like me, I have a 16" middie heavy profile Walther barrel I hate carrying around other than for SR shooting, hence I'm building a lightweight 11.5" set up for <200m, will be suppressed except for when in the safe and will be shooting 77gn tipped SMKs.

    So if I understand correctly - you have a barrel, a 16" barrel, but it's not a govt or lightweight profile? does it have a midlength gas system?

    Should be about 9.4" (~240mm) from the receiver end of the barrel extension chamber, to the rear of the gas block if it's mid length.
