The Ballistic Advantage Performance Series of barrels offer a ton of improvements over standard offerings. This 11.3” AR-15 barrel is chambered in 5.56 NATO and features the lightweight Hanson profile. It is made from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel with a durable and slick QPQ salt bath Nitride finish for long term corrosion resistance while the barrel extension features a Nickel Boron coating. The M4 feed ramps are a high wear point and the harder Nickel Boron will stand up to thousands of rounds pressing against it. The carbine length low profile gas block comes from the factory pre-installed and pinned for a rock solid and reliable setup. The 1:7 twist rate helps to stabilize heavier rounds especially out of a barrel this short. Threaded 1/2x28 for all your favorite muzzle brakes, so you can launch fireballs down range. High pressure tested, and magnetic particle inspected, this Ballistic Advantage 5.56 barrel is great for building your next carbine.

Ba barrels in all my rifles now

by -

Awesome barrel. The quality from ba is next level. It is perfectly gassed and is 10000% better shooting than a 10.5 thanks to the smaller gas port and close to 40% more dwell time.

Crazy Accurate


Don’t know where to start !!!! Lol all jokes aside this is absolutely amazing ( stupid accurate ) you could easily shoot this and are out of targets with Hornady Frontier M193 55grain BUT it gets BETTER !!!!!! 1/2 or less with 62grain/75grain Hornady Frontier ...... shot more than one 1/4 5 shot group with the 75 grain...this barrel really likes the 75grain. All done with an Aimpoint pro Ectoch Magnifier Larue tactical 2 stage trigger ( BEST TRIGGER MADE ) cannot say enough about that trigger....Outperforms my “G” band triggers lol seriously all jokes aside you will be hard-pressed to find a better barrel, They also make this barrel in stainless steel

BA Hanson for the win.

Mated this barrel with an Aero Upper, and a Midwest 10.5 combat rail. I used a heavy Sprinco Blue spring, and an Expo H3 buffer. I shot about 200 rounds the first time out. Shot very tight groups, and every round chamber/ejected without any issues. The gas block was easy to install; I went ahead and dimpled the barrel, in addition to the pin, just for good measure. For the cost it’s hard to beat this barrel!
