With an AR, there's no reason you can't have both though. How long does it take to swap a match trigger in and out of a lower?
Or drop in a mil-spec trigger?

I have an Army "buddy" (He's an EOF, too!) who wants a "replica of a RVN-era M-16". - While I have access to a parts kit for a 1960s Colt rifle, I'll need a 20" barrel to do-up his rifle.

Do any of you know where an "20 inch pencil barrel" can be found at a REASONABLE price????
(I'm NOT going to pay "scalper's prices".)

yours, sw

Define "reasonable". There's a slew of barrel makers today. I know some of them offer pencil barrels. Don't know if any offer a 20" pencil barrel. Check Daniel Defense off the top of my head, or the selection at Brownells (includes DD). I haven't looked at any Olympic Arms material for decades, they might do one.

If you're looking for vintage, that's gonna be tough in usable condition.
