12.5 barrel with pinned gas blockI just received this barrel today and I have to say I love it. The fit to a Colt upper receiver is awesome. From now on all my barrels are going to be pinned gas blocks from DD.
Excellent barrelI have tested 2 hand loads with this barrel: 77 TMK and 69 SMK, this barrel is SUB MOA all day long!! I get very little copper out of this barrel unlike other brands chrome lined barrels. Without a doubt one of the best barrels I own.
Barrel lifeI have a 12.5" CHF DD Barrel with over 12,000 rds going thru it and is still as great as day one. Wished DD would swap and give me a new one and put this in their museum.
