Since California is trying to ban my ARs, I intend to built a few more.

How do Seekins barrels compare to other similarly priced barrels like WOA, Fulton, etc, in terms of accuracy?

I want to build an accurate 16" upper with a mid-weight barrel of some sort?

Thanks
ILya

Seekins are button rifled hand lapped rock creek barrels. They are very good barrels. WOA are Wilson air guaged barrels. Great barrels but not hand lapped.

Rock Creeks have been very good to me over the years!

Rock Creek is what my .338 custom "uses".  Great barrel, so far.

Interesting.

They do not have a 16" barrel it seems, but 18" should be OK.

Something to think about, I suppose.

I just bought an 18" from swfa a few weeks back. Have not collected all my parts for my build yet. But i am expecting a shooter.

I do not believe the AR performance  stuff can be beat for the money!  My 18" 3 gun barrel shoots less than 1/2" when I feed it good food "Creedmoor 77gr TMK"! I have a total of seven of Harrison's barrels Great stuff.  Even has a new line of Grendel based cats coming out with bolts & barrel extensions that will do 62,000 psi in .442 rim size!  Try that for any length of time with a standard bolt!

I'd like to try a Seekins just 'cause of experience with their other gear. Have used AR Perf, Blackhole and Rainier all with good results on ARs.
