    OK,

    I'm needing a 14.5" barrel. The application will be full auto and suppressed (M4-2000). I have everything I need except the barrel, forend and gas block. I'm going with a Daniel Defense Lite Rail 9.0" forend and a Noveske Switchblock gas block.

    For some reason, LMT, and Noveske don't catalog a 14.5" chrome lined barrel separate.

    I'd really prefer a light to mid-weight barrel with chrome lining and no 203 cut. I'd love to have a fluted barrel, but it's not a requirement. What is a requirement is high quality. So who's chrome lined 14.5" barrel would you get if cost wasn't a consideration?

    Given your scenario I'd get a Sabre

    I would go with a Sabre 14.5" chrome lined middy barrel. It is lightweight, does not have the M203 cut and the mid-length gas system should be smoother in full-auto and less gassy when suppressed. Bravo Co. usually has these, but they are out of stock right now: http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/Sabr...-Barrel-1-7-p/sabre barrel stripped 50385.htm

    That's exactly what I was thinking.

    Daniel Defense, Bravo Co or Sabre would all be good choices. DD doesn't make a middy 14.5 but the other two do. I also wasn't aware Noveske was selling switchblocks alone so you might double check that.

    Noveske currently has clamp on switchblocks in stock on their website for $185.

    After pricing all the various parts and what I currently had, I really want a complete Noveske upper. I think it's a lot of bang for the buck. I could spend more money and still not have exactly what I want.

    The problem is they don't catalog precisely what I want. I'm waiting on a call back from Ann to see if I can put in an LE special order (currently if it isn't in stock you're out of luck, no backorders). I'm keeping my fingers crossed. :)

    Ah ok I wasn't aware they had the clamp on ones available. If they won't do it let me know and I'll see if they will let me order it.

    Sabre or White Oak. You could also have a 14.5" barrel custom made to your specs for what you are going to pay for a Noveske or Sabre barrel.
