    As much as I'd love to for the retail value I haven't missed what I was shooting at to 500 yards. I would really like to but my daughter proceeds Extended barrel. I want but I don't need it.

    So except for a little longer range and a small percentage of velocity increase, what is the big hype about this barrel? For $1200 it should shoot around corners....

    Seriously, what is the ooohh and aaahh about it?

    Waiting to see if they still have one after someone has installed and provided pics and a range report... I'll probably get one at some point if they are still available. I'm just on the fence about the benefits. While I'd like to add it to go with my FN pile... I think the 20" will be slightly unwieldy on my set up, and with my preference of extended rail... I've lost on the quick change ability. With that said you need something to cover that barrel length or the gun looks a bit off.

    It's just good to see them available...choices and all that. People have have been clamoring for these as far back as I can remember.

    Now, It would be pretty pointless for me to get one, given the distances at which I regularly shoot. It would be kind of like buying an RV for trips up and down the driveway.

    I also noticed the 18" barrel for the 16. I didn't even know that was a thing.

    Exactly. With my A5MXP and FNAR and Rem 700 AAC SD, what is the point of another long range shooter?

    For semi-terrible shooters, a flattened trajectory on reliable a semi-auto with an awesome trigger CAN offer some benefits, no?
    It may be able to level out the playing field against an average boltgunner on an opposing side of a hill.

    I was kinda interested in these when I first got my scar, if it was offered in a 1:10 twist I'd have a harder time passing it up but I think my 6.5cm ar10 and bolt gun have the longer range stuff covered.

    Nice to see they finally released them though!
