You can get the same thing for $99 at surplus ammo, plus a variety of other places. These are just rebranded ESS solutions barrels. You can even do a group buy if you want and get them even cheaper. Different twists and barrel profiles are available too.

ER Shaw makes them I thought. They aren't that bad. I own two: A 300 BLK and a 6.5 Grendel. I haven't done much with the Grendel but the 300 BLK is easily a 1moa barrel. It quite often shoots touching groups at 100 yards with surplus m80 bullets. I would hesitate to order another again for anything other then a match rifle.

Oh yeah and it is cheaper at midwayusa because you forgot the coupon

ER Shaw is one of the suppliers they use, there are so many people producing AR parts now it is hard to know what it really is. I know ESS is the newest on the scene with competitive pricing and a pretty good product. Lowest bidder wins out in the end.
