    Even though they told me they were in stock, it turns out the Rainer Arms SS barrels for AR pistol builds are not available.

    After looking for a replacement I found these. They are Red X Arms SS barrels for an AR pistol. I can find very little info about them on the web. The few reviews I have found seem positive. For this price I am willing to give it a go.

    Does anyone have any opinions on these or experience with Red X Arms products?

    Just built one with their 9" 300 blackout SS barrel. Took it out today and it worked great. no problems at all.

    My 10.5" AR upper is a Red X Arms upper. I haven't shot it yet but the quality and build is very nice IMO.

    This is what they say on their website about my RXA15 upper.
    BARREL - 10.5" 4150 CMV STEEL HBAR/HEAVY CONTOUR BARREL. HARDENED TO 26-32 RC AND STRESS RELEIVED. CHAMBERED IN 5.56 NATO (ALSO ACCEPTS .223 ROUNDS). 1-7 RH TWIST 6 GROOVE BUTTON RIFLED. .750 UNDER GAS BLOCK. MICOR INDUSTRIES FLASH HIDER AND CRUSH WASHER. M4 FEEDRAMPS. NITRIDE COATED.

    Those look like some nice uppers but I am not understanding why they would do a heavy contour on a short barrel?

    I didn't have a choice in barrels, that's how the upper came. I don't mind the weight of a heavy barrel.
