    AR Barrel

    Been looking for a nice .223 Wylde version. Any experience with Classic Arms offerings?

    Ive had pretty good luck with Bear Creek Arsenals barrels on a couple cheap plinking builds. One is a 20" ss spiral fluted barrel that gets me 2 moa at 100 yards with just cheap pmc bronze ammo. Other is a 10.5" barrel that ive only shot out to 50 yards with but accuracy was just as good at that range. When you catch sales you can find their barrels under $50.
    Haven't tried classic firearms so cant attest to theirs

    The 20" barrel ive run well over 2k rounds thru so far with zero issues or drop in accuracy

    Pretty happy with my 18" Palmetto full rifle gas Wylde chamber

    Took it out for a shake down. 200rds fired about 9 different flavors both steel and brass cases. The 1-7 shoots 75grn nice. Only issue I had was short stroking. Changed to a better gas block and that solved it.

    Fax on getting good reviews. Probably out of budget if you're looking cheap.

    Might want to post a want add here. Hecht Palmetto stuff is selling so cheap just grab an upper.

    Used a couple of their 300BO bbls for some plinkers and no complaints.

    Picked up a 18" fluted 5R Wylde from Midway a few years ago and have had great results. Not as low price as Classic though. YMMV.

    For $150 or so you can get a nice Ballistic Advantage barrel.
    I'd agree with you but then we would both be wrong

    Cheap??? Stick to Ballistic Advantage, Faxon, Green Mountain, and PSA Premium CHF

    Larue Stealth and PredatAR barrels have been selling for super cheap as well. You get a hell of a lot for your money with them. Only downside is they seem to be frequently over gassed, which can be remedied with an adjustable gas block.

    Those are the best budget options out there. Their barrels are quality. Personally, I wouldn't screw around trying unknown brands. The ones I listed are well regarded and consistently put out a good barrel.
