    Default Barrel choices for 7.62X51 AR Build

    I am looking for a barrel, 18-21 inches for a AR10 build. Lower will be an Armalite, I already have an Armalite ar10 a4 type, so to keep the magazine situation easy is why I have decided on a Armalite lower. Its main purpose will be tack driving and predator hunting. Number one thing is being accurate, a close 2 is carrying it all day hunting, so maybe a heavy fluted barrel 18.5 inches. I have looked at Noveske, but no others. Thanks ahead of time.

    I think a stainless barrel in a somewhat lighter profile would fit your bill. Ranier Arms makes some that would be great -- http://www.rainierarms.com/?page=sho...=&pagenumber=1

    I would look at their Ranier Arms Select barrels in 18" or 20", whichever you prefer.

    The Armalite AR-10T barrel is very similar... they cost a bit more though. However, you could buy a complete upper with the barrel already installed if you went that route. I held a 20" AR-10T this weekend and it wasn't heavy at all.

    I have been looking into building/buying a 7.62x51 AR myself, but I think I will go with one of Armalite's 20" chrome lined barrels. I just need to decide whether to just buy an AR-10, or whether I should build it on a MA-Ten receiver set so I can use P-mags and take all AR-15 lower parts.

    Do you know if armalite guarantees sub moa or anything with that barrel? I can't believe more people haven't replied!

    Well after looking deeper on Armalite's website it looks like I may just buy a complete upper from them, they seem to have what I'm looking for. It will be very close to the same price buying it all separate or buying complete.

    I know that you're looking at an Armalite rifle but I've got a Fulton Armory barrel that shoots very nice.

    I also like having a lower that will take a JP trigger and allow me to use the cheap Pmags.

    I have an Armalite AR-10T with the Lothar-Walther match barrel. I broke it in per Armalite's procedure. I have put 3 rounds in one hole off a bipod at a 100 yds. . If they still sell this stainless match barrel ,I don't see how you can go wrong.
