The Expo Arms Combat Series AR-15 Barrels are designed to give you a premium barrel at an affordable cost. This AR barrel is made from Mil-Spec 11595E certified 4150 steel and features a chrome lined bore to withstand high temperatures for a long barrel life. This 11.5” model features a SOCOM profile with a carbine gas system and .070” port diameter for reliable function. Additionally, the .750 gas seat diameter is dimpled for securely attaching set screw gas blocks. The 1:7 twist rate is optimal for heavier 62 grain ammunition and the muzzle is threaded 1/2x28 for your favorite 5.56 muzzle device. The entire 5.56 Barrel is Phosphate coated for corrosion resistance and oil absorption. If you are looking for a combat ready barrel that provides exceptional accuracy and reliability, you can’t go wrong with an Expo Arms M4 barrel.

If you're on the fence about it, G E T I T


Honestly one of the best barrels i've ever had. Took 20 or so rounds to break this bad boy in but after that it was smooth as butter. After a 36 yard zero i rang steel out to 200 yards no issue.

Awesome barrel for the money

Awesome barrel for the money In my opinion! Made a pistol build for home defense and used this barrel! Ran some federal 556 55gr, PPU 223 75gr match bthp, and frontier 556 75gr match bthp with no problems! Limited range at the time 17yds! Barrel took about 15 rounds to break in and seemed to like the frontier the best but the brands were good with no malfunctions! First time using the bear creek arsenal bcg too seemed to work fine! Need to get out to 25-50 yds!
