you might call DSA and see if they will sell you one with a gas block instead of a front sight. they might just sell you a barrel if you ask the right person nice.
just cause it ain't on their web page don't mean they don't have it you might get lucky.
by the time you buy all the stuff to roll your own upper your probably going to have at least what DSA is charging for the stainless steel model.
it is tough to make an odd cal AR upper for three bills--in stainless steel no less-- it probably has an odd thread on the flash hider to boot ==a few extra $$$!
if i was not ass deep in AR-15s right now i would seriously be checking out the blackout in stainless--
but i got a 6.5G and TWO 7.62x39 uppers ( yea i trying to talk myself out of one)--LOL!
I thought I post it here but I can't find it now -- Seems DSA posted on another site that they will be selling the barrels (I hope the stainless ones) for around $180! They said they would be available sometime this month.
