Re: ABS Barrel wanted

The thing is if you talk to Mike at ABS, he told me that with the heat disapation of the carbon fiber, that your barrell will last 3 times + longer than a standard barrel. But I have heard from people on this forum and other like this, that you will burn up a ABS barrell just as fast, it just costs 3 times as much. The good thing is the barrel is lighter at a bull barrel size. Maybe just go with a lighter barrel contour.

Re: ABS Barrel wanted

There is a reason why guys like Mike at abs are building barrels for the US military now. He has played with more barrel and carbon barrels than most people on this sight. Most people I have met that don't like carbon barrels are old and broke so they justify why old technology and cheap are better. You loose weight and dissipate heat faster they are stiffer and stronger which in my book means better. If you are a coupon cutter than build as cheap as you can and have fun, if you want the best spend some money.

Re: ABS Barrel wanted

So then is what you are saying is that Mike at ABS is the BEST barrel on the market, and all others Krieger,Lilja,Rock and "ect" are cheap. Is the barrel I get worth $600.00 more in the performance gain over standard barrels or am I paying for cool.

Re: ABS Barrel wanted

a lot of "cool' in the cost i think, but the only way to tell is to look and see what is said about the ABS bbl in 5, 10 , or 15 years. Also, i don't understand how "getting rid of heat faster" helps in anything but a rapid fire situation.

abs wraps any blank you want so it can be the same barrel blank just up graded.

Re: ABS Barrel wanted

I dont think that ABS wraps any blank now. I think they will only do SATURN CUT barrels. I had a rifle Built by KK Jense at Jense Precision out in Montana. The rifle would group at best 12" at 100 yards with all kinds of different loads. KK told me the barrel was bad and that I could take the money back and put toward another build or wait for a replacement barrel that would take up to a year to get then the build process. I was told that he could have me a 338 Ultra in 4 or less months, this was 1st wk of June 2009 and in Jan of 2010 the gun was still 2 months away from finish. But that is another story. Sorry for the ramble on of disappiontments. My 1st ABS barrel was a Krieger liner.
