I was thinking of doing mine, but the flimsyness puts me off, and the fact that they don't come out of the factory floated, so there must be a reason for this.
Intresting point the wall thickness is a whole 1mm differnt to the thick steyr barrels,with regard to free floating the MK1,2 and 3 some of them where not brilliant and free floating them did improve consistency not accuracy but i have not seen a mk4 that is not spot on.
