I'm slowly building an AR. Got a bunch of stuff on sale, and am going to do a 100% myself build.
I can't find the barrel I think I want. I want an 18" barrel with a rifle length gas system, and would like it to be a heavy profile. Would prefer nitride, but am open to chrome lined or stainless, and would like it to be a reputable manufacturer.
For those who will ask, I just want something I've put together myself, and I like the idea of a very soft shooting rifle, and this seems to be the way to go. Probably mostly paper punching, but also something I can eventually use to teach my girls on.
Thanks for the help.
Here is a barrel with your exact specs.
What's your budget?
Where have you looked already?
What's your preference for chamber and twist rate?
Same barrel, with a coupon for 25% off.
...that I will support
I'm confused. Literally anyone I would buy a barrel from has this on a quick internet check. I didn't check availability so maybe it's that issue? Who did you look at that didn't have it as that might give some idea of your price point. Any top tier vendor has this.

Thanks to all who have responded.
Rln_21, that is a pretty solid option, and one I think I will probably go with. And RobLew, thanks for the heads up about Monmouth. They are good people there, ordered from them before.
Thanks for responding fritz. Budget is ideally up to 250. I'm not that spectacular of a shooter, so realistically any barrel will be more accurate and precise than I am. I have looked at Palmetto, Primary Arms, and DSG. Nothing there really jumped out at me they just seemed too cheap or not what I was looking for. Chamber is either 5.56 NATO or .223 Wylde, I like the interchangeability of ammo. Twist is up for grabs.
hrcjon, as this is not a project to which I am accustomed, I do not know the usual sources and what 'top tier vendors' have, hence the query.
I've switched most of my AR barrels out to AR15 Performance. Accuracy with 69 gr (or similar weigth) bullets is around .5 MOA. His bolts are the best out there. If purchased with a barrel, he'll make sure it's headspaced. He's got 18" mid weight rifle gas barrel that is melonite treated with 5/8 threads. I got the same barrel for my 3 Gun AR:

Fulton Armory is a good source, but they're out of 18" barrels right now.
From a quick google search, during a morning glass of OJ. Barrel options are out there.
