Can't Spell Barbie Without AR

With the lower from Alice free because she's becoming 80% Andrea the M16A2 clone...

Got a kit from Palmetto State Armory.  16" mid-length 1:7 melonite barrel.  There's some confusion about what kind of steel the barrel is made from.  In the kit it's just mentioned as being melonited.  A barrel with an identical profile is available that's marked identically to this one and it's 4150 chrome-moly vanadium.  I'd assumed that since they weren't bragging about it in the kit, it was 4140 chrome-moly.

Update: I asked the manufacturer and they confirmed that the barrel that came with the kit is 4150 chrome-moly vanadium barrel.

A whopping 7.4 lb. loaded!


Trying it out with the Israeli issue sling that used to be on Kaylee.

Still need to get a rear sight.

  1. I bought a couple of melonited PSA 16" M4 style uppers a while back when they were on sale. They are sitting on top of 80% billet lowers I completed...
