Those barrels were in the very early 601 rifles. Usually made by Winchester. They are big money now.
Not that far back, I think M-16s I shot had 1 in 12 twist, only ammo I saw was the M193 ball (55 grain).
They had the newer bird cage flash suppressors, not the old three prong style.
Ok. The old three prong was prone to hang up on vines and limbs as I understand.
I have heard of issues with 7.62x39 bolts breaking and wearing quicker, so I would go with 223 Wilde or 5.56 chamber. I have millspec, JP, and Geissele triggers in my ARs all function and it’s just a matter of preference. I want to try one of the larue triggers because they are supposed to be comparable to the geisseles at a cheaper price point. Invest in a front pivot pin installation tool, they are cheap and it will save you a headache. Be careful on the trigger guard pin, the ears can snap easily when installing if not supported. Definitely go with a M16 bolt carrier group. Check out School of the American Rifle on YouTube, there is a lot of good information on that channel. I would recommend buying a complete upper if this is going to be a one and done for your venture into ARs. There are a lot more specialty tools needed to assemble an upper receiver.
Use this “special” tool for the front pivot pin.
I lost mine after 10 plus years, and had to replace it. Think I may be out a buck and a half total.
We called those the wait-a-minute-device because they caught on everything when you were snoopin and poopin.

While I greatly prefer adjustable stocks, theres just something about an A2 buttstock. Its classy, and its there to get things done.
Did the A2 kit come with a buffer?
