    Interesting. I am guessing that isn't including installation. Might be something to think about a little

    that was just the barrel but ar's are way simple to work on and build. i have built 5 or so with another in the works.

    just takes a barrel nut wrench, and a upper holding block. pretty simple.

    I know the 204 has a 222 parent case, but I don't know enough about the differences in case to know if it would work. Seems the 204 is a little longer, would a guy gain that back at all??????? More or less posing questions for conversation purposes.

    No, the parent case of the 204 Ruger is the 222 Remington Magnum, not the 222 Remington. The .204 Ruger is too long to make from .223 brass.
