I have a spare 16" 1-9 5.56/223 mid length gas barrel that came off my M&P15T I would sell it to ya for cheap if they can't get that one worked out. I would like to get $50.00 plus shipping. It has probably around 2000 rounds thru it there was nonthng wrong with it I just replaced it with a 300 AAC BLK barrel.

Thanks for the offer Palmetto-Pride. My favorite LGS fixed my issue for me albeit in a rather round-about way.

They called me while I was at work and asked if it was ok for them to just put a new barrel on the gun (at no additional cost) because their gunsmith had lost focus for just the slightest bit and managed to irreparably damage my barrel while he was reaming it out. Of course I said yes. Now we're just waiting on a new 20" heavy profile barrel (which they didn't have in stock) and then its all going to be in working order. This is why this LGS is my favorite.

I'll have a range report when I get the complete upper mounted with optics and put on a lower.
This is who we are, what we do.

I guess that worked out pretty good at the end.
Good luck

Did you get a screaming bargain for this upper?

The fact that there was no kind of brand/manufacturer marking on the receiver and barrel is very sketchy. That is a huuuuge red flag. Even a wrong chamber or barrel could easily injure you if you fired the wrong cartridge.

Sorry to hear but I hope it works out. Probably not your fault what happend. Do you have the contact info of the gunshow seller by any chance? Every time I buy anything at a gun show I always get the sellers business card just in case.
