    how much and specs? Some say (in other forums) so-so quality. I guess mga diehard US fans yon. But on the other hand Korea is turning out lots of firearms
     


  3. Twin Pines has them for P17.5K they have 16" and 14.5" barrels

    1:9 twist? chromlined or SS?
     
  5. The barrel is stainless steel 1:9 twist and in bull configuration. South Korea has one of the best ordnance steel in the world at par with Brazil. That barrel is way better than any "military surplus" (except for the brandnew Bushmaster/DPMS) barrel floating around here. I have installed two barrels in the last 7 months and Im pretty impressed with the performance.

    Bought one from Twin Pines in 2004 and built a 24" barreled rifle. Barrel is by Dasan of South Korea, huge arms manufacturer (Google it).

    Using the atrocious stock M16 trigger from a bench (80M Armscor Rifle Bay) and a cheap scope and circa '76 WCC surplus ammo, it groups under 1" with 5 shots.

    With the hotter Lake City 55Grn FMJ, I can manage 1.5" to 2" with the same setup. Visit the Armscor Range website, http://www.armscorshootingranges.com/ranges/ that's me with the rifle in the Rifle Bay pic.:embarassed:

    It so happened that the guy making the website needed some pics, and I was there by my lonesome firing some old stock ammo.:whistling:

  8. Can't open the website. Just want to ask if you had the barrel blued or installed it as is, i.e. stainless steel.

    AFAIK the barrel I bought was carbon steel in-the-white, chrome lined bore and chamber 1:9 twist. Had it hard-chromed at first and then painted the whole thing with Alumahyde II Gray. I have since sold this setup to a friend, didn't see much sense in a "Long Range" 5.56mm. :dunno:

    Looking forward to building a 7.62Nato AR platform with 20" barrel if components become readily available locally.

    Local one made by TPascual, similar to GG&G. BTW that scope was too much power for the rifle and the 5.56mm round. A fixed 10X or lower variable with a smaller objective bell is much better.:embarassed:

  13. Sorry for the late reply kabayan na toxic lang sa facebook:supergrin: Both rifles that I worked on got 1.5" groupings at 100meters.
     
  14. Quite good groupings at that range, Sir Paltik. By the way, did you install the barrel as is or did you have them blued or painted? Was thinking of getting a 14.5 inch one but kinda looks weird for a carbine if installed as is, i.e. white. TIA
     
  15. Its stainless steel barrel and the owner asked me to apply black DURA.COAT on it. The finish holds up pretty good after two matches at PNPA rage in silang.

    Here is my 14.5" SS barrel, beadblasted finish, to give you an idea on how it will look like.
