is anybody converting the uppers to use a standard AR barrel besides Marvin Pitts/Nefarious Arms???
It could be a viable option if/when you burn out your MR556 barrel that would allow you to replace the barrel without searching for an HK416 or MR556 barrel, and you would also be able to have more choice in terms of the barrel profile you want, rather than having to be "stuck" with an HK416 barrel, or cut and/or re-profile an MR556 barrel if such things are of concern.Why stick an AR barrel on a MR556? Is it just for the chrome lining thing?
So can you provide a link to the discussion? I'm interested in a chrome lined barrel installation.this was covered on here a while ago.... basically, you can put a hammer forged DD chrome line (blah) onto a slightly modified 416 upper. currently it is the only way to get a hammer forged after-market barrel onto the platform.... I'm still un-decided on this particular modification...
that said, Marvin does phenomenal barrel work, I'm told.
I've spent about an hour looking through old threads.... I can't find the one I was referring to. I bet if you went to Nepharious Arms Facebook the info is there.So can you provide a link to the discussion? I'm interested in a chrome lined barrel installation.
Oh well, I don't have a Facebook account.I've spent about an hour looking through old threads.... I can't find the one I was referring to. I bet if you went to Nepharious Arms Facebook the info is there.
