A lot of the current barrels are of a larger profile. With the military upgrading the M4 to SOCOM specs you will see a large number of the carbines with thicker barrels. The LMT barrels are thicker than a standard M4 profile but there is also a very, very noticable diffrence in the piston barrel. I like the heavy barrel but my wife is just the oposit and we built hers with a pencil barrel.

In hind sight I would get the 14.5 pinned for my MRP to save weight. But I think I am going to get another barrel in the SS version.

You can always buld your rifle from the parts you want, all of my rifles are built that way.

its not balanced at all! A lot of guys are sending there barrels to marvin pitts at adco so he can dimple them to loose the weight. I just traded away my piston barrel thats the bueaty of the MRP you can just swap it back in under a minute if you dont like the barrel.
