Criterion SAK NM profile barrels can be purchased from LRB. They may be out. Criterion will produce more late this year. I have 3 on order.

You might want to look into Jon Wolfe medium weight barrels as an option.

I have to agree with Cook. I have done four of the WMMW barrels that Jon puts out, and their accuracy is superb. One barrel that Geeck has is getting better it seems, with each round fired. My stainless is getting enough rounds down the tube now and is showing some phenominal accuracy. Criterion makes these for him also.

When Kreiger sells a short chambered barrel, they say it will be .010 short, but I have found that some are actually not short at all, or if they are, they are like .007 short, and less. Only one has shown a full .010 short in my building experience. Wolfe's seem to hold tolerance in this area much nicer. This is important when building a commercial receiver that may need extra room for headspace to hit. If it isn't a full .010, then you chance not being able to hit it with reaming and may be longer than desired for finish headspace.

I think I may have gotten on of the last of those 2 weeks back. They had to check for me and found one.. I don't think there are any plans for ordering more of them.

I did pick up one of LRB's chrome lined, standard weight 18 1/2" barrel yesterday... That's going on an NOS LRB receiver I picked up on arfcom for $800...
