    I wasn’t sure I wanted the fluted barrel but I think it looks great with my build, upper and lower all Anderson parts. Very nice with the new EXT free floating forend and Knight Stalker flash hider. Great to be able to afford a quality product.

    • Michael Johnson

      Thank you for the support.

    I was unaware that fluting creating a raised surface so when I put a low profile gas block that was perfectly sized that I kinda had to thread it on with the spiral flutes. I don’t fault Anderson but a clamp on gas block would probably be way better to get on. My gas block leaks slightly although the function works great I still get a little blow by. I have just got the barrel broken in I haven’t got it sighted in completely but I am loving the setup. I also ordered Anderson’s nickel boron bolt carrier group which is working great.

    • Michael Johnson

      we are sorry to hear about the issues with barrel. we have to look and see what the problem is with the fluting.
      Hope it all works out
      thank you

    Is the color black? It looks almost like a grey color in the picture.

    • Michael Johnson

      This barrel is Mag phos not nitride.
      They do sometimes look a little dull in color compared to nitride
