Lets say I was going to build am AR-10 in 7mm-08. Whom to buy a barrel from? Number ine priority is quality. I don't care about lead times, and price is not a huge factor as long as we don't get into double the price of other manufacturers.

A Google search led me to McGowen, but I know nothing about their quality. $265, and 10 weeks. Not bad at all, as long as it is a good barrel.

If I was really trying to go all out on an accurate AR barrel, I'd get a Bartlein barrel blank and have a gunsmith chamber, headspace the barrel and bolt, and attach the AR barrel extension.

7mm-08 is one of Dan Lilja's favorite calibers and know his son Adam used his Grendel AR on Montana and Dakota whitetails. They will do AR barrels or can have one made from blank btu cost might be prohibitive.


McGowen barrels I own one and have owned another. Decent barrels but believe you can do better quality wise.

Just called Kreiger, and talked to a very nice representative.

Kreiger only makes rifle length gas port barrels. And with rifle length gas ports, shorter than 20" they've found to not cycle reliably.
