The SBN finish is terrible on this thing. Even the muzzle brake has brown runs in it. The barrel fades in and out from runs. Contacting PA to see about swapping.
FYI, this is melonited stainless steel not sbn 4150

An answer to a questions you might have buying this package. Yes, the gas block and muzzle device can be hand loosened so that they can be removed easily prior to installing the barrel on an upper receiver. I was worried myself, but had the tools if needed so I gave it a try.
<br>All in all a nice looking barrel, though the specifications need to be updated for this product. This is a stainless steel barrel with an exterior melonite finish including the threads and at the feed ramps and throat of the barrel. Still a good deal in my book. I'll update the review once I've been able to put some rounds through it.
