Call me when they hit 20k rounds in a suppressed 10.4" with no bleed off...

And can somebody that knife to me. It looks like a Forged in Fire specimen where the smith lost track of time.

If you read the comments on the next post they made about chrome lined barrels, it appears they are also making chrome lined barrels for HK416’s / MR556’s as well!

How many squeezed before an original OTB bolt on an original OTB upper actually needs replacing? Seriously?

How would those Geissele barrels compare in your opinion to original hk OTB barrels? Im asking because I have two and am considering stocking up on parts for the future.

The Geissele 416 chromed barrels are on a 1:1 with original HK OTB 416 barrel specs? or sub? Geissele being the geniuses they are have me wondering...

HK barrels are capable of some remarkable ****.

There's some good info here:
https://www.hkpro.com/forum/hk416-hk417-hq/192466-what-kind-steel-used-hk416-417-a.html

Many here think HK can do no wrong; Geissele enjoys similar allowance for some reason. Neither is infallible but I truly and deeply believe (as do many of their industry peers) that HK barrel manufacturing is incredible. Luckily a weak barrel will likely expose a weak bolt in relatively short order.

Maybe they'll get it right, but somebody else can be the beta tester. However, with their URGi/Mk16 rail issues and the cluster **** that was the Rem 700 trigger release, the common user might just be getting the message that nobody in the industry deserves a free pass.

Stand by for the "I just put 200 rounds through my HK/Geissele build and it's good to go" nut-hugger reviews.

Are we sure they are going to make 416 barrels? I did see the question asked to them but didn't see them confirm barrels will be made for HK416's. I could have missed it
