The barrel is one of the few components that directly affect the accuracy and weight of your build.  This barrel has a nitride finish for increased strength and durability. While featuring a special contour that is designed to be lighter than a conventual SOCOM barrel giving you that extra edge when shooting 3-gun competitions. This barrel offers a 1:8 twist rate, suitable for both heavy and light ammunition.  It is corrosion resistant resulting in an extended barrel life that is longer than conventional chrome lining. Thus, being the perfect barrel for long distance shooting, competitions, hunting and practically any shooting application you’ll subject your AR-15 too.

Chambered in 5.56 NATO for full compatibility with surplus MIL-SPEC ammunition or commercial .223 Remington. Constructed of 4150 chrome moly steel and finished in nitride for excellent surface protection. The 1:8 twist rate is great for stabilizing most bullet weights from 55 grains up to 77 grains and the carbine-length gas system is optimal for reliability and reduced recoil.

  1. Timn Caldwell

    I bought two of these for father and son matching rifles. We have both shot hundreds of rounds through them with excellent results! Thanks CBC!

  2. Larry

    I have bought barrels and complete uppers from CBC and all have been high quality products. This barrel is no exception. Fit and finish is very good and the barrel is darn accurate for a 16″.

  3. Peter

    Purchased this on sale after a friend recommended it to me. For the money, thus barrel is a great deal. It has great fit and finish, and is very accurate.

  4. JG

    Shot groups of three with PPU 223 ammo, all under 1 inch at 100 yards!

  5. Justin

    I bought this on blackfriday for a great price. Finally finished my build the other day and got to shoot it. I only have a limited amount of rounds through it but performed great, fit and finish is good. I dimpled it for a gas block and it was harder than wood pecker lips.
