I accidentally came across the Airborne Arms website and looked at their barrels.  I noticed that there are stamped lines for gas block alignments and two indents for gas block set screws.  I have not seen barrels like this, if anything just one dimple for the set screw.  I really like this idea especially for novice builders...then if gas blocks had stamped lines for alignment??  That might make it too easy...

That is a nice touch.  Reminds me of the warning on coffee cups nowadays "Caution, Contents Hot!".  Well no sh*t, better be.

Good idea for the set screw flats and marking. Other than that, although I hate to rain on the parade, their barrels are not cheap for a 16" parked barrel. Other sources have similar melonite barrels for about half that.

Yeah, but a Claymore actually needs it...an AR barrel, well it just smacks of consumer protection.

My eldest brother had one of those signs. I think I'd like to leave the American sector at the rate things are going...
