Yep 18" barrel, the AA does not look bad. I got a price from Saturn to cut a barrel to my specs (SPR) but I dont have 550 to drop on that right now. Braownells had one I was going to buy but they have been out of stock for a few months.

Re: ar upper help!

yep, thats a little steep, apperantly on "sons of guns" all you need is a $50 chop saw to wack of a few inches of a $2000 barrel.i was looking at the AA 20'', the only thing i dont likeon the longer barrels is that the gas block is in front of the free float tube,i'd like it to be under the tube. what i did on my carbine is to put a rifle length tube on a 16" barrel.

I have a 20" 5.56 upper and the gas block is covered with the Larue 13.2" rail

Here is one I found that may work well. It's the LBC and it doesn't have the screwy threads that AA uses. Stainless 18" SPR with 5r rifling for a reasonable price doesn't sound all that bad.

264LBC
