AR 260 barrels, who has them?

I have an Armalite Ar10 with a SS 24" 308 barrel, shoots fine, but want to go with a 260 .. I have looked all over the internet, it seems no one offers a 24" or more bbl in 260 for he Armalite AR-10's.
Even Armalite only offers a 22 inch at best. Anyone offer a 24 inch?

thanks

You'll have to talk to someone that can make you one. I've built 260's and a 6X47 Lapua out to 26" inches. If you're going out that far, you'll want to use a 2" over length gas tube and hence a a longer free-float tube. You might not find it from a factory, but there are a lot of gunsmiths around that can build you one. Brux barrels can sell you one ready to go for a pretty reasonable price.

Call or email Armalite. Just because it's not listed, doesn't mean they don't have them.

JpRifles does not offer a 260 rem. The 6.5 they have also only have 22 inch tubes. around $800. Armalite has a quality 22 inch 260 for much much less if I want to go 22 inch.
I'm looking for a 24-26 inch tube.

thanks anyways
