    Green Mountain bbls

    These guys do ML bbls and as I was shopping AR bbls for my shorty pewpew AR, I came across a M4 bbl assembly for 200 bucks. From what I found, I couldnt build one for that, maybe close if I hit sales, so I bought it. http://www.gmriflebarrel.com/gm-m51-m4-barrel-assembly/

    214.28 shipped

    I've used several of their barrels on 10-22's and those are also quite a bit cheaper than anyone elses barrels but still pretty decent quality.

    I've heard good things about GM barrels, and "supposedly" they made the .920 10/22 barrel I have, sold under a different brand name. I have no way to confirm that though. Otherwise, I have no experience with them

    I am seriously considering a LW Bergara 20" for my hunting AR

    Adding their estimated shipping, I'm looking at ~$130 delivered

    Sidebar! How in the hell did "bbl" end up as an abbreviation for "barrel"?

    So that means we can only use the bbl abbreviation for blued barrels...

    Incorrect, following your own link the author posted a link to another post where he corrected himself. He found the abreviation of BBL being used for barrels as far back as the late 18th century.
    CORRECTION: Since writing this post, I have discovered that the explanation of the origin of bbl given below is a popular myth. For an explanation, please see my subsequent post HERE.

    I will be using a Green Mountain barrel for my .458 project. I got a barrel blank fro them and it is one hefty chunk of steel with a very nice looking rifled hole through it. I have heard good things about the quality of their barrels, be it a blank or machined barrel.

    Re: Green Mountain bbls

    Hey, I use bbl and see it all over the firearms spectrum as an acceptable abbreviation for a gun barrel. Usually preceded by some number like 6" bbl.

    Barrels of rum or oil or early gun barrels, bbl means barrel to me.

    I sure can't think of a better abbreviation, it is ingrained in my haid.

    Gas block way to short for what I want, and while GM isnt a name heard in competitive circles in the AR world, they are in the ML world, its a real deal barrel company.

    It was worth a try. I enabled a few of these already. $45 lowers with no shipping or FFL transfer fee is the best deal I have ever seen. They are selling Ruger stripped lowers for $60 too.

    Y'all are wrong in how the abbreviation came about. The first barrel maker had a stuttering problem and couldn't write. So his scribe simply wrote down what he heard.
    I've got a GM 10-22 barrel. I don't think you can get much better without tripling the price. And even then it's a small improvemt.
