Great barrel, reasonable price.

I have owned this barrel for a little while now and am extremely happy with it. Got it set up and pinned & welded a flash hider on it to keep the rifle from being an SBR. I've put plenty of rounds through it now and have been pleased with how well its performed. I can ring 6" steel gongs at 125 yds all day even with just the red dot I'm using on this rifle. I'm sure this barrel is not being used to it's full potential and would be better suited for a gun with a nicer optic. Would definitely recommend this barrel for anyone looking.

Good Barrel

I bought this barrel in January of 2020 and finally completed the upper in December. The barrel assembled well and the finish is good. I do wish they would dimple for the first gas block set screw to make assembly easier. My son has put about 200 rounds through it. It zeroed excellent and shot decent groups with a red dot sight out to 300 yards with bulk reload ammo 55gr.

Great Shooter Barrel

Bought this barrel a year ago. Finally built into a P/W legal 16 inch upper. The barrel assembled perfect. The barrel shot great at about 2MOA at 100 with cheap ammo and a RDS. Great barrel with a nice nitride finish!
