Best barrel I could possibly buy for under 35$?

My friend has a g&g and he plans on replacing the god awful aluminum inner and stuff, What has the bets balance between window size and potential accuracy?

Get a stock G&G brass 6.04 from a Top Tech. Most people are throwing them away but when they're polished up they work fantastic.

I vote SHS.
However, you can get a Prometheus for $45 on Evike. Just apply the coupon code, and it'll be $45-50.

You are so, so naive. Before you reject an offer, you should actually KNOW something about the topic.
PDI Raven is High Carbon Steel that has their fancy coating. It'll rub off and rust.
Prometheus barrels are stainless steel and won't.

Don't act so knowledgeable if you're coming to a forum and asking to help you with something you could research yourself lol.

For under 35 your best bet is to get one of the budget steel barrels, and then lap it if you're skilled enough.
Madbull Steel Bull
ZCI


Those would be my two options.

Also, we have no idea what length you need. There could be a $20 difference between a MP5A4 barrel and a GR25 barrel

The information we possess is a culmination of things we've read and our experiences over the years along with the occasional Google search before posting. Asking for proof of our experiences will most likely not result in documented experiments.

Throwing around statements such as

Not only are you naive, but you are stubborn.
If multiple, experienced or knowledgeable members tell you something, I'd say your best bet is to listen.

PDI Raven barrels are nothing "fancy." Its just a steel barrel with a black oxide treatment and oil. Hardly fancy.

Prometheus barrels are made from SS, unless you get a fake. Which is still a little bit of a problem if you order from sites overseas. The ones from the major retailers are the genuine deal.

PDI raven barrels are not all that good. I have one, its decent, for a mid grade part.

Correct.
The reason why I said "fancy" was because it's a coating that you don't see on most barrels, and to sort of point out that it's a bit of a gimmick.
Still though, I wasn't positive that Raven barrels were black oxide treated. Was about to put that in, but didn't in case I as wrong.
What if someone was to make a barrel with salt bath nitriding?

PDI offered a palsonite barrel at one point. It was only for pistols if I recall right.

I'll post up my results on a nitrided barrel, will be a few months though.

I think OP has been thoroughly embarrassed and has abandoned his pursuit lol.

Any sort of "fancy" coating could start chipping too, after lots of temperature, humidity changes, and cleaning.
