I bought this rifle new on May 14 as a base platform from which to build my dream rifle, primarily for its amazing barrel, which is an FN manufactured (with "FN" stamp) cold hammer forged proprietary M249 machine gun barrel with chrome lining almost twice as thick as a standard M4.

I decided prior to its arrival that I want to do a 6.5 Creedmore DMR build instead.

I think $625.00 is fair. The plastic bag with the magazine, lock and manual hasn't been opened.

Here is the description from Palmetto:

Barrel: A proprietary blend of Hammer forged chrome molly vanadium made by FN that is referred to as "Machine Gun Steel" by virtue of its required use in FN's M249 and M240 weapons. The hammer forging process work hardens the steel, making it more durable. In addition, the chrome process for the bore allows for a lining almost twice as thick as a standard M16 for enhanced durability. Chambered in 5.56 NATO, with a 1/7 twist, M4 barrel extension, and a carbine-length gas system. The M4 profile barrel is Mil-spec phosphate coated, High Pressure tested and Magnetic Particle inspected. Barrel is finished off with an F-marked front sight post with sling swivel, standard handguards and an A2 flash hider.

Upper: Forged 7075-T6 A3 AR upper is machined to MIL-SPECS and hard coat anodized. Uppers include forward assist and dust cover. These uppers are made for us right here in the USA by a mil-spec manufacturer.

Bolt: Full-auto profile bolt carrier group. Shot-peened, mil-spec Carpenter No. 158® steel bolt. Gas Key Hardened to USGI Specifications, Fastened with Grade 8 screws, and Staked per Mil-Spec. 8620 steel M-16 profile carrier is chrome lined and phosphate coated.

Lower: These forged lowers are quality made using 7075-T6 aluminum and are marked "MULTI" for caliber. Finish is hardcoat anodize. Mil-spec diameter 7075-T6 buffer tube is hardcoat anodized, has 6 adjustment positions, is fitted with a PSA M4 Carbine Stock. The fire control group is a PSA mil-spec finished single-stage assembly.
