if i was really hurting for a barrel right now i would check over at sportsmans guide they had some 16" barrels for $89 --you can probably get a discount code and get at least another $10 off. (if they got any left--they did last time i looked)
then it is hacksaw, re-crown and tap threads to your length.
there are a few barrels left at M&A parts --but man their pricy-- like $250--
there are still a few parts around --even the little things from oddball vendors are running out this time.
you might get a LMT from matt D tactical -- upper for retail (about $475) expensive for a bare upper but very high quality part.
looks like they only got 16" and 14.5" left and a few goober expensive piston jobs--
the irony is an expensive tier one as the mall-ninjas say at its inflated retail price is NOW THE the "deal"-- man has the world turned upside down--LOL!
