sota arms DOES have a web-site ........ will you folks check it out ? !

maybe they are a decent builder of parts . let me know what you all think ... !
I looked.

Meh. 1 in 9 twist, no specifics listed on the steel used, am not sure (doesn't say), but it looks like they don't necessarily even cut the gas port, which then makes me wonder if whoever DID do it did a decent job of it.

What I'm seeing on their site is low priced barrels of no real special or impressive nature (they might be great, but this is the first I've heard of them and the folks known for super high quality tend to dump specs on you, not just provide little more than an ordering page), maybe even aimed at those who OEM rifles requiring a few more steps than the common parts swapper.* That then makes me wonder who put the rifle together... if his/her skill level isn't a known and trusted quantity, that to me makes it worth even less.

*No offense intended to common parts swappers. I'm one. I can assemble pieces of ARs all day with a smile on my face and a song in my heart. But I don't drill gas ports or taper pin holes for a FSB. A man's got to know his limitations.
