Barrels, serious and super serious.

Gathering parts for my next build. Down to choice of barrels. Top is Saturn/ Liberty heavy SS NM bottom is an Ultra precision. Expecting to have an LRB M-25 receiver delivered shortly.
I am leaning toward the ultra precision on this build. Might even put her in another JAE chassis so the total weight will be around 20 lbs again. Whatta Hobby!

No longer in production, I am told. I do have a few in the stash for future projects.
Only reason I ask is that I keep coming back to the idea of a heavy shorty. Something that has enough meat to cut back the front end of a full-length and rethread to 5/8"x24. I'm exploring the option of cutting down a Satern at the moment, just waiting to get the info on the diameter.

I'm guessing that with all barrels right now, this just isn't possible, but with that Bula? barrel it would be. Did they offer a gas lock to match that ultra heavy that had a dovetail in it at one time?

Yes they did.. I have one and I use it on the ultras when I am indexing them.

Art, if you ever want to part with one of those ultra heavies, and the gas cylinder and dovetail gas lock to match, I'm game.
