Most definitely not AR-15 barrels, at least not in the picture you posted of the rack of barrels. AR-15 do not have notches cut around the exterior of the chamber wall. Only barrels that feature that design are browning type machine guns with adjustable headspace.

he can and has turned them into AR barrels, but yes they are browning barrels. He has another rack opposite that rack that is full of AR barrels of different lengths
