Just want to know what yalls thoughts are about putting a bull/target/precision barrel on a DR200 upper? I was thinking a good 20" chrome lined 1:7 twist heavy contor barrel could work great for some semi-long range fun with maybe a chance to try out some F-class shooting. Anyone know how much I should expect to pay to get something like that done? Is there anyone offering this service right now? And has anyone already tried this, is it worth it?

I don't know if this would change anything, but I would also want to have the barrel threaded for a hopeful suppressor down the road.

Thanks for the help!

moses here has some experience converting ar15 barrels for the daewoo. you want to get one that's stripped w/o the gas port hole drilled if possible. the only challenge i see with a different contour barrel is the front sight block. the barrel would need to be turned down to reuse it.

the factory config isn't really well suited for a long range bench shooter but with a stormwerkz rail and free float railed handguard, you can have a stable scope mount and a railed handguard to mount a bipod on. also being free floated will increase accuracy.

Thanks for the info! I'll PM moses if he doesn't post here in the next couple days. And I've already picked up a stormwerkz handguard, so now I just need to find a good bipod.
