I am looking for a 24" or longer barrel for an AR but don't want stainless, unless it is black. Cant seem to find anything. Don't want glare bouncing of barrel, and do want extra fps longer barrel gives. Any links or suggestions?

YEP, 5.56 Nato or perhaps .223 Wylde

twist

Ohhh, 1:9, 1:7, any thing really. Been looking a long time, but sounds like all wrong places.

here is what I've come across so far... I will look a little more in a few min. I thought RRA made one but everything I'm finding is SS, I guess you could blue it

another thought... you may have to wait 6 months or so but you could have Krieger make you one.

Been using a Bushy Heavy Fluted 24" 1:9 since 1989 that started with a 1st gen Oly flattop upper and stop sign lower. It now lives on a Stag lower and LH upper. Still a tack driver and it still dosen't like steel cases!!

P.S. non-chromed everything.

Those who trade liberty for security have none.
