Our spiral fluted barrels are technically heavy barrels; but 20% lighter.

The look of the spiraling is a bit hokey. Bring back the smooth barrel look or even a government profile barrel. That's what holds me back from buying anything further. Please.

The man with the Guy Fawkes mask as his avatar thinks something is hokey...well, he'd know. Hey, don't you have a 12.7" REPR upper to sell?

Has LWRC stopped offering conventional barrels all together? I thought you always had the option.

BTW, this conversation seems familiar somehow. Didn't we have someone else on here a while back that was openly spiralphobic? :mrgreen:

Im pretty sure they still do. Spiralaphobic, right click, add to dictionary. :yeah: Shut down the presses, re-tool the entire line so one guy can get a standard profile barrel, check. Or you could contact CS instead.

I'm not sure if this guy is joking or not. All of my LWRC's are spiral fluted and if I get another I hope it would be as well.

Two of my three are spiral. The one that isn't because it's a 8.5" barrel.

Spiral fluting is where its at, gun feels way more balanced. Especially running suppressors.

Big +1 on spiral fluted barrels. My A3 was solid barrel, and a heavy mofo. I'll take the spiral flutes anyway. Lighter with better balance. If Guy F only wants solid, maybe he should find a used A3.

Honestly, our spiral fluted barrels have pretty much become our standard. As some of you probably know, these were first used on a limited edition M6A2 Tricon before being used on other models. There is not really any sort of downside to running one. Same high quality and strength, but lighter.

They also look great and help differentiate our brand at the gun shop as we are known for this.

Here's a novel idea, if you like everything but the barrel about LWRC, buy a LWRC & change the barrel to a heavy or government profile. Gets you what you want, yes it'll cost extra though.
