    Recommended 6.5 Grendel Barrel Suppliers and wait times?

    Hi all,

    Are there only two approved barrel makers currently making 6.5 Grendel Products under license or at least to approved specs? Namely Satern and Alexander Arms? Are there others?

    What are the current wait times?

    Thanks,

    Paul

    Sounds like JP has them in-stock right now.

    Dang, they think a lot of them. I'm sure it's an outstanding barrel but I'd like to stay shorter (16") and less expensive is possible.

    SAOD has one in stock:

    While not a true Grendel chamber, several of us have complete uppers from them and have had excellent results. I would not hesitate to buy from them again.

    I didn't get to do a propper range report but this should suffice:

    Wait times are usually long. I am currently on my fourth week since placing my order with Precision Firearms. You may want to check with J&T Distributing.

    I spoke with J&T yesterday and they said they were out of bull barrels and bolts. I didn't ask about the other contour 6.5 barrels.

    Unless you order an instock barrel its pretty safe to expect a 6+ month wait one thing to ask your self is what sort of accuracy your looking for if you want under half a minute I would go for a custom cut rifling barrel like satern if will be happy with 1-1.5 moa than just about any barrel will due most of them will shoot sub minute with good ammo if I was building a short-mid range carbine I would probably just order one of the ar stoner barrels from midway I have heard several good reports on them and the apparently have grendel chambers and come with a matched bolt I think they run about 300 with no wait if you order instock if I wasn't towards the end of my wait with satern I would probably just get one of those and call it a day

    I like that one much better than the JP. 4" shorter and $100 less. Is it a true Grendel chamber?

    Anyone know how to get in touch with Precision Firearms ? I have tried to contact them by email thru their web site and by phone with no results. Emails get returned un-deliverable and voicemail will not work. Les Baer is the only company out of the four that has replied, but their lead time is four to six months.

    Pricision had a power issue from Sandy, and then had computer issues. They are up and running again, but still very busy, so keep trying. They build great stuff.

    Thanks, I'll try them again tomorrow. Bartlein recommended them to me, I'm really wanting one of their barrels. I have a 30 AR, 223, 300 aac, and I want a Grendel to finish my collection......who am I kidding, collections are never finished. Thanks again.

    I am not sure why you can get through except we too have had issues with EMails not going out properly. Hearsay has it that Sandy is still affecting servers and Main Internet Hubs. Depending on when you tried it could have been issues with Phone Service too. Try this email too. pf15@pf15.com

    I have a grendel 24" barrel by Krieger, that is a true grendel chamber. It's pretty much perfect.

    I also have a cheaper Liberty barrel, which was marketed through Satern (I think). At the time I bought it, they were pretty easy to come by.

    Not sure if they're still making either.
