Rosco 5.56 16" HBAR barrel in stock $120

Carbine gas, nitride finish, advertised as HBAR, $120. Rosco makes their own barrels from scratch and has a decent reputation.

No gas block dimple, so maybe that's why the price is lower?

Thanks for the heads up. Been looking for a less expensive hbar. Went and ordered one.

I've build 2 rifles with these exact barrels. Excellent fit and finish and not over-gassed in my experience. I just wish they made it in midlegth.

Ballistic Advantage also makes an excellent and relatively inexpensive HBAR barrel, and mid-gas to boot. It's out of stock now but were available a few days ago for a short time. Even has HBAR stamped on it.

Good find, OP.

Wish we had more choices for fluted HBARs these days for weight savings. The Faxons are expensive and eternally out of stock, and Wilson Arms doesn't seem to be producing them these days. I pretty much live on classified forums and grab them whenever they pop up at a reasonable price.

I was supposed to be on the list for that one but I never got the email. There's always Criterion if you've gotta have mid-length gas.

Yep, I am very familiar with Criterion. It's my main squeeze for my personal rifles.

Is it a major deal that it doesn’t have the dimple? May just order one.

No. But some here may have an aneurism if you tell them you threw a set screw gas block on your barrel without one. It is preferred but you can still achieve dependable results if done correctly without a dimple.

For $30 or so you can get a dimple jig and drill the dimple yourself. I feel like the dimple does more to get the gas block properly aligned than it does for making a secure installation. Toss on a little Rocksett and it's not going anywhere.
