We purchased one of these barrels for a repeat customer of ours in which we built a custom rifle. We used it in conjunction with a side charging billet upper receiver, and utilized a flat wire recoil spring and carbine buffer. Unfortunately the gas port was too small for his set up, however, we were able to machine the gas port without impacting any accuracy, as we were shooting 1/2 MOA-3/4MOA using Hornady factory ammunition in controlled conditions (indoor range, 100 yards, 75* temperature, 65% humidity).
The customer was thoroughly impressed and anxious to get out and hunt with it.
