looking over at JSE surplus. they usually get a stock shipment late in the week that shows in stock friday or saturday.
anyway their weekend update shows a few 16 inch 1x9 twist car and m4 type barrels in stock. a few 11.5 chrome lined Heavy barrels in stock and ready to ship. maybe the barrel shortage is about over i hope???
barrels have been hard to find for months and have been the hang up for building many a kit rifle.
they also have a few BCG's and LPK's which have been hard to find as well.
if your needing some of these hard to find items to finish a kit it might be worth it to give JSE a look. the prime stuff in on the front page specials--just click on the JSE banner at the top of the page.
