Who sells a good .300 Blackout mid-length 16" barrel?

Got a PSA CHF upper on a PSA lower, and I'm looking to re-barrel it to .300 Blackout. It appears that all PSA sells is a carbine-length version.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

All I am finding for 16" .300blk barrels are pistol or carbine length. I am not a .300blk expert but there is probably a reason for this. I know all the good .458socom barrels are either pistol (for short barrels) and carbine length for longer barrels. The reason is the carbine length works best on a 14" or 16" barrel. The midlengths in .458 are problematic. I suspect a similar deal with the .300blk.

I have never seen, nor heard of a mid length 300 blackout barrel. The blackout is optimized with a pistol or carbine gas port. Some 16" barrels with a carbine gas port will not cycle subs reliably, others will work fine. With pistol gas, both subs and supersonics should cycle fine with or without a suppressor.

Thanks for the input. Looks like I may be stuck with yet another PSA in 5.56. I hate it when that happens.

I may just spend the coin and get the M&P15T upper and call it a day.
