So I read the couple discussions about the differences, a guy messaged me trying to sell me a “virtus” barrel, but judging by the gas block positions I am highly confident this is a legacy barrel. Also seems thinner than the virtus which leads me to believe it’s a legacy. Anyone care to chime in?

11.5" 556 Virtus barrels you can tell because the gas block is way out front. This looks like a legacy to me.

Here's my legacy 11.5

Like Mig said, gas block is farther forward with the new plug with the longer wings. You are correct about the profile being thicker on the virtus. Lugs are tapered/ rounded on the virtus extension as well.
