    every one seems to like Barnes Presision. one guys i'm talking about were out of t'ville. they had their own logo on the lowers. i ask who made them. they told me Moore's. there were other's there who also had their on roll mark that MMC made.
    BTW, didn't MMC made the way out of spec Roggio Arsenal lower too?

    I have never heard of Moores Machine and a carbine length gas tube on a 20" barrel definitely isn't right. The rattle isn't as big an issue. There are mods you can buy to fix that for really cheap. But the barrel would be an issue especially if you don't know what type of twist or what type of pressure it can take (I have seen an AR explode before... not cute). Do you think you can post some pictures for a better idea?

    Check out this link. I just read this thread on another forum. Does sound like a piece of junk just looking like an accident is waiting to happen.
