Couple questions about your AR uppers
I picked up a Wilson Combat AR upper, 16" midlength gas barrel[no m4 cut], .750 in front of gas block and .800 behind, Wilson front/folding with tritium and Wilson rear coin slot adjust sight, Daniel defense railed handguard. Also NP3 coated carrier assy.
I was wondering if your barrels from a year or 2 ago had any markings on them.
Also what upper forgings do you use?
And did you finish[park/paint] the barrels if they were stainless?
What would be the twist rate on this particular barrel?
Thanks for any help, mp.
A couple of years ago was at the height of the AR frenzy.....I will check tomorrow with the shop regarding barrel markings. Some stainless barrels are left natural, some bead blasted, and some are Armor Tuff'd. We are a custom shop, and many AR's are custom ordered. Except for our SuperSniper barrels, which are 1/8, most barrels of that era would be 1/9 twist. Our upper forgings have come from different forging houses over the years, but we do the machining.
I want to check with the shop, and check records, because I don't remember any barrels that were .750 ahead of the gas block, and .800 behind. Keep in mind, as I mentioned, we are a custom shop, and it could be a customer supplied barrel.
Ok, this barrel is stainless with no perceptible markings.
Do you think the twist rate is 1/8?
BTW, Cardinal forge upper.
I didn't catch it in your first post...about this being a mid length .......but any WC upper built with a middy barrel would be marked with the chambering and twist rate on the under side of the barrel, in front of the gas block. Sounds like you have a build that is using some, but not all, WC parts.
Hmmm! Very interesting. You guys ever sell blem complete uppers?
Nice word usage. I had to look it up.
I guess it means "characteristics" or "description" in this case?
Nope, we don't sell blems.....but we do sell componets. Sounds like some bought some of our componets, and some others, and built a upper.
