Rosco Manufacturing Bloodline 5.56 Barrel Government Carbine - 12.5"
The AR-15 is by far the most dominant carbine on the market. To stand out, simply building 'good enough' components doesn't cut it.

Rosco Manufacturing takes their barrels seriously. Rather than entrust someone else's blanks or machining, they produce every barrel from scratch, controlling every step of the manufacturing process. The Bloodline series is cut from high-strength 41V50 Chrome Moly Vanadium steel, the same stuff chosen for the rifles used by our military for its exceptional durability. Improving on the military-grade barrels, the Bloodline-series are finished with a highly corrosion resistant, low friction salt bath nitride treatment, making cleaning easier than ever. By producing these barrels entirely in house, they've also been able to tune each barrel by selecting the optimal twist rates, gas port diameters, dwell times, and materials according to the needs of each barrel.
This 12.5" barrel is machined to a balanced Government contour, offering a solid balance between rigidity and weight. The reliable carbine-length gas system ensures your rifle gets the right amount of gas to cycle even in adverse conditions. The 5.56 NATO chamber is fully compatible with .223 Remington ammunition, with a 1:7 twist rate that is perfect for heavier, precision-oriented cartridges, but is thoroughly functional with popular and less expensive bullet weights.
Rosco Manufacturing got their start producing high quality, hard-use precision rifle barrels. They have since expanded, offering their own line of serious use parts and accessories so you can assemble a rifle that doesn't just shoot good and look good, but will handle hard use as well. To top it off, they're production facility is in Central Falls, Rhode Island so you know that every component is 100% made in America, by Americans.

Barrel installed easy came in great condition and quality seems fantastic. Best part is **Barrel is dimpled from factory! I always dimple my barrels so the gas block has a lower chance of walking off or rotating - this made my life so much easier!
