The 1/9 is only better if you shoot 55-62 grain bullets, or lighter. The 1/7 is what our military uses and it stabilizes the M855 rounds a whole lot better, which is a pretty long bullet. My Ar is a 1/9 but having a 1/7 wouldn't be a deal breaker. Just depends on what you're going to use it for and what bullet weights you will be shooting through it.

You want the barrel to be MPI and HPT tested along with the bolt being shot peened, high pressure tested and magnetic particle inspected.

Well I'm not going to pretend like I'm an expert. Spikes Tactical makes some really quality rifles/parts. Everything is mil-spec. The particular rifle I posted the link for has the midlength gas system which is more desirable than the more common carbine gas system. The midlength system is easier on the internals, your shoulder, "generally" more reliable for a 16" barrel, and its smoother shooting. It also has M4 feed ramps, comes with a Magpul Pmag, barrel and bolt are magnetic particle inspected and high pressure tested. The bolt is also shot peened for strength. For most people a Bushmaster, RRA or a DPMS will work just fine.

sorry. forgot to answer the question. no i have no intentions to hunt with this gun. it will be strictly for 2 legged varmit. still not nuts about mag partical testing. there is no paper trail, alot of room for error, and nothing to keep the reader honast about his results. as soon as the mag particals are off the mettal there is no way to varrify what was or was not there. diepenatrent, ultra sound, and xray are the best ways. then there is a paper trail.

I don't believe my DPMS is high pressure tested, MPI or shot peened. It does have M4 feed ramps though.

Milspec is way overated when it comes to ar 's.It means some parts are individually tested as oppossed to batch tested.Milspec recievers are cut to certain specs totally meaningless.A non milspec rra or bushmaster will do anything a milspec ar will.save money and buy quality magazines such as the magpul much more important.
