A little pricey for my taste. Would love to have one if I could afford it.

Their prices say "match bolt"...
What the heck does that mean? Are they including a headspaced bolt, or do you need to send in your bolt to headspace the chamber?

Then that's a reasonable price for a match-grade barrel.
There was a similar conversation about a 6.5 Grendel barrel not long ago.
When it comes to AR barrels, makes a $ difference if it comes with a headspaced bolt, or not, when evaluating prices.

I haven't owned one of their barrels- but have read nothing but good reviews.
If fact, I just watch Jerry Miculek (tv) use a M&P .22lr with a Walther barrel shoot 2" groups at 200 yards...
