A 16” lightweight contour barrel chambered in 5.56 precision machined from 416R stainless steel with a Nitride Finish. 1 in 8 twist with a 1/2×28 muzzle thread. Mid-length gas system with a .750” gas block diameter. An excellent choice for 3-gun competition. Lightweight, accurate, and low recoil. Made in the USA with a lifetime warranty.

This 5.56 barrel is capable of delivering sub-moa accuracy with long-term durability.  The 416R stainless steel material used to make this barrel is known for producting greater accuracy and the nitride/QPQ finish will extend the life of this barrel to be accurate shot after shot.  This material and finish combined with a mid-length gas system that reduces felt recoil would be ideal for a 3-gun competition setup where accuracy, duability, and handling are paramount.
