Ballistic Advantage Modern Series 5.56 Barrel Gov. Carbine - 10.5"
Chambered in 5.56 NATO, this Ballistic Advantage 10.5” barrel is an excellent option for building a short barrel rifle or even a pistol. This modern series barrel features all the qualities you would want for a short carbine style build. It features a carbine length gas system for optimal reliability with a 1:7 twist rate. The barrel is made from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium and has a salt bath Nitride finished inside and out for long-term durability. The government profile is thin behind the gas block shelf to reduce weight but then gets larger to accommodate .750” gas blocks. Threaded 1/2x28, you can easily attach your favorite .223/5.56 muzzle device, whether it is a flash hider or muzzle brake. If you are building a high-quality AR-15, you can’t go wrong with the Ballistic Advantage Modern Series 5.56 barrel.

BA is always good to go.

This is build #3!
<br>Ballistic Advantage is my absolute goto barrel. BA is all about quality, accuracy, and at reasonable price. Zero marketing hype.
<br>I mounted this barrel in an Aero Precision M4E1 upper, surrounded by their 12 inch enhanced quad rail, and capped off with a 3 inch KAK flash can. This setup brings the muzzle exactly 1/2 inch past the rail. PERFECT.
<br>I averaging 1 inch groups at 50 meters with my 55gr plinking handloads sighted through a Primary Arms 1x Cyclops. The barrel is more accurate than I am.
<br>Chambering and extraction are flawless after a 200 round breakin.
<br>What more do I need?

Can't go wrong with a B.A barrel
by KRIS -
I have several B.A barrels from 7.5-18". So as soon as I seen P.A had them in stock and on sale. You can just take my $$$.
Awesome quality and fast shipping
by C. Smith
My new Ruger 556 pistol barrel had bad threads so I just bought a better quality barrel rather than deal with the hassle of sending my firearm back hoping for a replacement. I'm in TX and PA shipped this sweet barrel asap and it arrived in 2 days. I had no idea PA was TX based. I will be ordering parts from you guys from now on!!!! Plus this barrel was on sale!
First BA barrel, not my last.

This barrel is gassed excellently. Ejection is perfect with h2 buffer, cycles and locks back on both steel + brass ammo, even in very cold (0 F). I will update once suppressor is out of jail! I have not done definitive accuracy test, but with Sierra 77g, it is near moa.
<br>I ordered a BA 8" 300 blk based on my positive experience so far, both barrels show the same QC, waiting for their 308 next. I would like to see them pre-dimpled for gas blocks, but I know not everyone does.
