Hi, long time lurker, first time poster.  Just wanted to point out something I spotted on the DT web store...

https://deserttech.com/accessories.php?item=2434
Note that it's not a custom barrel in and of itself, it's a gas valve and whatever other adapters needed to convert a barrel for the MDR.

This is kind of an interesting prospect, to have a gas block to take to barrel blank machinists.  Any thoughts from y'all about it?  It seems like it could be a bit risky, depending on how versatile your favorite barrel maker is.

ES Tactical is the best aftermarket company to make custom barrels for Desert Tech rifles. I would trust them.

You know, I'd been following es-tactical since last year and got a bit concerned when the dedicated MDR barrels got removed from the site.  Good point about having the experience with making barrels for the MDR, though!

Also, I ought to go and inquire about whether or not these valves are for the new two-port MDRX gas blocks.

(side note: anyone looking for a 20" creed barrel?)

I'm thrilled to see this!  I don't know if I'd ever take advantage of it, but I love seeing the aftermarket/DIY support for the platform.
