19" Myers/Steacy Profile
This AR15 profile was originally crafted from a 24 inch blank with a 1 inch shank by gunsmith Craig Myers. After some testing by Ryan Steacy(at a national championship that didn't go very well) it was decided to thin the original shape down under the handguards and to cut it to 19 inches in length. The result is what we have today and more than a pound lighter without giving up any accuracy. This profile has been used to win numerous B.C. provincial championships and has been used on Ryan's rifle to win his 4 Canadian national championships. It's heavy enough to be VERY accurate, yet light enough to be maneuverable for quick shooting and long enough to keep velocities high enough for 500m. With the right driver and ammo, this profile can take it to 600m and maintain accuracy. This profile requires a .936" gas block and a rifle length gas system. This barrel comes in at 2.4 lbs.Click on the pic below to get a better view.
