The advantage of this rifling -- known as Single Edge Polygonal (SEP) -- is a significant reduction in the engraving on the bullet as it travels down the bore. This reduction in deformation means the projectile retains a more symmetrical shape, allowing for increased accuracy. The reduced engraving on the bullet has the added benefit of reducing the loss of gas pressures, which helps with retaining velocity.
Bottom line: You can get sub-MOA accuracy with match grade ammunition in the TRACK 2.0 barrel.
Shoot longer without having to worry as much about cleaning your barrel. TRIARC Systems TRACK 2.0 barrels include a low friction NP3 finish on the barrel extension. You know the TEFLON that makes your frying pan non-stick? The same compound, known as polytetrafluoroethylene, is combined with electroless nickel to create the NP3 finish.
Not only is this finish more corrosion resistant, but it also increases the lifespan of your barrel by reducing friction. Cleaning it is a snap. Sometimes you can do it with just a soft cloth.
If you’re looking to build a high-quality 5.56 pistol, this 11.5 inch barrel is an excellent choice.
When you buy a TRIARC Systems barrel, you're supporting a veteran owned business.

Purchased the non-suppressed model, but it is still far too undergassed to work reliably, even with standard carbine buffer and spring. Ammo used was Black Hills 69gr 5.56, and 77gr.. as well tried Fiocchi 223 62gr and some IMI 5.56 55gr. Each had random problems with short-stroking and not being able to pickup the second round. I tried two BCG, a Toolcraft and an Aero. Neither made any difference. If I could return this, I would.
<br>PA reply : We are sorry that you had this issue with this item. We appreciate the opportunity to make it right, keep an eye out for the return label and thank you for choosing Primary Arms.

Plugged it into a BCM blem upper with a centurion C4 rail and a lower running the Vltor A5 buffer system. Runs great on A5H2 buffer, soft shooting with everything from cheap 55gr FMJ to 77gr OTMs so far. Went shooting with a friend and tried out his suppressor (SF RC2), gun still cycles fine but clearly overgassed, throwing brass at 1-2 O'clock compared to normal 3:30 unsupressed. If I planned to shoot suppressed more often I'd probably use an A5H3. Only downside is cost, but that's everything these days.

A well constructed and sturdy barrel. The only issue I have with it is the misaligned gas-block dimpling. Had to change out my setscrew gas-block for a clamp style one because the dimpling alignment was so off-centered the gas ports wouldn't line up. Works perfectly otherwise.
