    Default MR556 upper gets a haircut! (Barrel Flutes)

    After about 4+ years of thinking about it, finally got it together and ordered a barrel tool
    and removed the bbl from my MR556 upper. The upper needed a little heat, reinstall much
    easier than removal.

    After weighing all the options, went for barrel fluting, and chose ADCO, as I have had
    great experiences in the past with Steve. Also many years ago, I had an AI AWM with a
    fluted barrel and always liked it This thing was barely gone a week and it was back,
    and they did a very nice job, and even managed to save the serial # and the caliber info!

    Excited to see how is shoots, the haircut took off just a hair over 7.3 oz if I am doing my maths
    right, the bbl now weighs 41oz.

    Impressive work. It does not look like your typical aftermarket fluting job.
