WTS or Trade: 18.5" T/C Custom Shop 5.7 Contender w/ mount.

Post by Grantness » 25 May 2011, 09:24

Hey Guys :cya:

I'm looking to sell my T/C Custom Shop 18.5" 5.7x28 Contender Barrel + scope mount (already installed w loctite). Great shape, prob only a couple hundred rounds through it. The twist rate is 1in12" (good for lighter bullets but can handle the 55grainers just fine and prob heavier). This barrel can take much higher charges than a PS90 or AR57 as well as a wider range of powders. I've got test data posted for this barrel and some other stuff I haven't posted. Also have several hundred of T/C-only brass that I can negotiate for. They're from EA and have a lot more case volume...excellent for trying out slower powders.

The barrel alone cost ~$320 new and had to wait over 3 months for it to arrive. I'm asking $275 + shipping but am open to negotiations or trades. I'm looking for a cheap, complete 556 upper (bcg, etc) or an AR57 upper (new/used). Obviously, for an AR57 it wouldn't be a straight up trade so I'd work out a price on the side.

Paypal (so long as you're willing to be discreet about it. lol :D ), cash, check, or MO.

This is for the barrel and mount (not shown) only.

PM me if you're interested.

Bum Bum Bum BUMP! :D

$300 shipped

Wait time for this Custom barrel is over three months.... You can get it NOW. Virtually new. Less than 100 rounds through it.

If you've ever wanted to do pressure testing...this type of gun (and the simple piso sensors) is WAY (as in thousands of dollars) cheaper than a universal receiver. Twist rate is ideal for light SS190,2,5/S4M - type bullets. I've used heavy bullets up to 55gr and had no problems either....prob go even heavier but havent tested. OAL & charge can be made larger...and you can experiment safely with a much wider range of powders!

Remember, comes with the top T/C scope mount already installed!

I'll be putting this on Gunbroker shortly if no one's interested... So get it cheap now! I've got brass and load data to sweeten the deal as well...
