    So could you please explain to me what "machine gun steel" is as I have never heard that term used in the description of a barrel before. :confused:
    Also what is the twist rate of the barrel (Being a PSA I would assume 1 in 7 but you know never know) and could you please clarify whether or not the Bolt Carrier Group comes with this upper?

    Also how about a link to promote educated purchasing decision for us. This does include a very good BCG too I assume?

    Jluck and Broncman-

    These uppers have been out of stock at Palmetto for some time given high demand, but it looks like they still have a valid link to the 20" barrel version of my upper. I pasted a link below. It's a 1 in 7 twist. The package does not include a BCG. It includes the Midwest Industries drop in rail (Midwest Industries: Gen2 Two Piece Drop-In Handguard) along with the charging handle, genuine LMT back up rear sight and 2 full length KAC rail panels (I can likely dig up a few more too).

    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 rifle-length gas system.** The A2 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.
