a quick once over of the details on this barrel.
the barrel arrived today in the US mail.
the wilson barrel was wrapped in bubble wrap. and looks new and clean right out of the box. unlike my del-ton middy that was full of heavy grease and had paper confetti that had to be cleaned out.
the barrel came with the front sight parts and sling parts. this was not indicated on the AD at JSE. i was thinking small parts would have to be ordered extra.
the barrel comes with M4 feed ramps on the barrel extension. i think this is a good thing for the rather long 5.45 case.
my standard size 6.8 bolt looks to extract the 5.45 rounds fine. i have one home made 6.8 bolt that was cut out larger than the standard 6.8, it will also extract if you install a 5.56 extractor on the bolt.
i am fixing to install the gas tube and see if it will fire rounds. so far so good.
