Bear Creek Arsenal 16" .223 Wylde Heavy Contour 1:8 Carbine Length 416R Barrel - Black Wolf Straight Fluted - Black Nitride
This 16", 1:8 twist, heavy contour barrel is machined from 416R stainless steel then heat treated to RC 28-32 hardness and properly stress relieved. After being treated with a highly corrosion resistant salt bath nitride finish, inside and out, the barrel is lightened with eye catching "Black Wolf" straight fluting.
Bear Creek Arsenal's barrels, 16 inches or longer, will hold 1 MOA at 100 yards with appropriate ammo and shooting techniques.

Practical And Pretty Too
by ReconViper1 -
I'm more into function than form but this barrel shoots well and looks good too. An easy swap as all dimensions were as they should be but I would have liked to see Allen screw dimples under the gas block. I believe the fluting makes for a stiffer barrel that is a bit lighter and has more surface area for better cooling. My carbine is no gunsafe queen but she looks great and runs hard without fail. This is a good option.
