if you are going for precision, do not get Chrome-lined - they last longer but usually not used in precision builds

SS will last longer than Chromoly, and more expensive, but I think both are good in terms of precision, providing they are coming from good name. and $234 for match grade barell is not expensive at all

I have no review for Fulton Armory products though

Fulton does *not* have a live stock web page. You could be waiting months for those barrels.

Any barrels currently in stock, will probably be sold out by the time I finish typing this post.

You need to have credit card in hand, and hitting known good sellers with live inventory web pages.

Fulton is Good to Go, they just need to get into the 21st century with their web page.

Got a few messages about the upper I mentioned. I haven't decided to sell it or not yet, but here's the info so you can pounce if I post it up.

It's a Model 1 Sales upper, Chromelined, 20" free float barrel.... pics say the rest.



Sighted the scope at 50 and then moved her out to 100... The group is before I remembered to turn the little knobby from 50 to 100, the single shot center is after i turned the knob... LOL. The first picture is overall, second is zoomed in on the little guy I was killing.
