I will also be installing a muscle brake on it in the future. what would you guys/gals recommend.
I personally have not had very good luck with Douglas barrels. I have had good luck with Shilen
The select match is the way to go with Shilen (There best).
You definitely get what you pay for, and a premium barrel ends up being cheeper because of
your chance of having a real shooter. the machine work cost the same on a cheep barrel as a
premium barrel so put your money on a premium ( They are normally about $100.00 dollars
in difference. )
There are 5 or 6 other top barrel brands.
