That's one reason HBARs drive me crazy. Wish it was a light, I still have enough pre-FSA lowers to juggle.

Their 16" HBARs are not too bad.

I wouldnít mind having a Dissy with mid-length gas and lightweight contour, but I donít know that I want to tie up a pre-2013 lower to do it.

Can always pop it off and swap uppers, ARs are good for that.

Saw this deal two weeks ago when it was posted and ordered a midlength HBAR barrel assembly, aka complete upreceiver per asembly. Order place May 5th, shipped May 14th, arrived May 17th.

I’d been looking to build a basic no-frills rifle to go on either an 80% or cheap lower with a basic LPK and stock. Zero with M193, check drop/comeups with M855, and then stash/store at a location other than my primary dwelling. A PSA rifle kit build would be perfect for this in like 40 other states, but here the options are HBARs or pistols. The latter will likely be my next stash gun, but the HBAR has the advantage that it can be transferred more easily.

Here are the specs as Del-Ton advertises them:
Quote:
This barrel assembly has a 16" barrel with Mid-Length Heavy profile, 1x9 twist, Mid-Length handguards with single heat shields, and A2 Flash Hider.

Barrel: (Specs will change depending on option that is choosen)
Chrome Moly Vanadium
M4 Feed Ramps
16" Length
1x9 Twist
A2 Flash Hider
Manganese Phosphated
Phosphated under Front Sight Base
Taper Pins on A2 Front Sight Base
Threaded Muzzle
Mid-Length Heavy Profile

Chamber:
5.56 X 45mm

Bolt And Carrier:
Phosphated 8620 Steel Carrier Assembly
Carpenter 158 Bolt HPT/MPI Tested
Heat Treated and Plated
Mil-Spec
Chrome Lined Carrier Interior
Carrier Key - chrome lined, attached with Grade 8 Screws
Properly Staked & Sealed Gas Key

Handguards:
Mid Length
Aluminum Delta Ring
Single Heat Shield

Upper Receiver:
Forged 7075 T6 Aluminum
A3 Flat Top With M4 Feed Ramps
Hard Coat Anodized
Mil-Spec
Ejection Port Cover and Round Forward Assist
Right Hand Ejection
Bore's surface is coated with dry film lube, over the anodized surface
This evening I did a quick field strip and cursory inspection. Some observations:
  • Barrel tapers quickly just past the chamber and then stays “heavy” until the FSB shoulder
  • Barrel is marked (engraved) DTI 1x9 5.56 Nato
  • 5.56mm chamber checker drops free very easily
  • FSB, barrel and pins were definitely all parked before assembly
  • Bolt is marked DT HPT/MPI
  • Bolt carrier is chrome-lined, AR15 semi-auto style
  • Gas key is chrome-lined, attached with YFS screws
  • Staking job is ok, both sides are different, and I’ll probably re-do it snce I have a 13-year-old MOACKS that doesn’t get enough use
  • Handguard cap is triangular. I will likely swap it out for a round one in case I want to use Magpul MOE SL handguards in the future
  • Handguards are medium thickness, not quite M4, not quite CAR, maybe slightly thicker than A2.
  • A2 flash hider is properly timed with a crush washer
  • Upper is marked M4 above the gas tube, has M4 feed ramp cuts, and white-filled index numbering on the rail

Based solely on what I see out of the box, I’m pretty happy for $220 shipped to my door. I haven’t found a budget option for HBAR uppers/barrels besides Del-Ton. I’d rather have an M16 carrier, so if I order again I'll check the savings for deleting the BCG/CH. There are PSA BCGs for $50 regularly, and Toolcraft and AO Precision for $70 when you look.

Rest of the build will come from my parts boxes, and some lower kits I’ve gotten from PSA. Rear sight will be a take-off MBUS or cut-down carry handle. Maybe a SIG Romeo5.

If you’ve listed after the idea of building a cheap rifle with a PSA Daily Deals Kit, this may be your midlength HBAR alternative.
