I have no idea what the barrel life will be but I doubt I will ever shoot enough to wear a barrel out. I am a believer in floating the barrel. Have you looked at the rra barrels? I like their 20 ss predator barrels. If your looking for better accuracy out of a 16" barrel check out melonited barrels, they are harder to clean than chromed barrels but tend to hold tighter tolerances. Looks like you have a good start on your ar.
looks like we were posting at the same time, i ended up ordering one. didn't mean to come of like a dick about it just generally if it seems too good to be true it probably is. then i reminded myself that this isnt a comp gun or anything so i figured i would try it out.
