Brutus' Description

This is a premium grade 18" Parkerized AR-15 Heavy Barrel from a highly respected U.S. contractor / barrel manufacturer.
These premium barrels are renowned for their deep, crisp, and consistant rifling and extreme accuracy.
When it comes to AR-15 barrels these stainless beauties are the granddaddy of them all.

1 in 8 twist, gas port drilled and set up for mid length gas system
and threaded for any standard AR-15 compensator. .750 gas block size, .085 gas port diameter

Barrel Extension in rear with feed ramps ready to install into any standard AR receiver.

Barrel is chambered as .223 Wylde therefore properly chambering either commercial .223 Remington or 5.56 Nato rounds.

1 in 8 twist rate performs well with both  heavy and light grain bullets

What a deal.......

Each parkerized barrel starts with 4140 Gun Barrel quality steel. Heat Treated and Stress Relieved to a hardness of Rockwell C 28-32.
Or we use the 416 Gun Quality Stainless Steel for our Stainless Steel Barrels.

All barrels are manufactured on modern CNC equipment to completely machine the barrel. We drill, ream, rifle, turn, chamber ream, pin the Barrel Extension, drill the gas hole, and mill the flutes, all on late model CNC Equipment.  The Barrels are manufactured under the ISO 9002 Quality System, and eachbarrel goes through a Final Inspection before shipping.

Review by Scott on 8/4/14

I decided to take a gamble on this budget-priced barrel for a 3 Gun rifle project. Being an 18" barrel with a mid-length gas port location, I put a Syrac Ordinance Gen II adjustable gas block on it under a 15" Midwest Industries free float handguard. It definitely shoots how I want it, and no issue with accuracy; completely offhand at 25 yards I could keep it in 3 inch groups pretty centered in the target with a red dot sight. I shot both M193 and M855 ammo with no issues.
very accurate

Nice barrel fit and finish is pretty good, shoots 1 inch groups with Wolf ammo at 75 yards. Bought 2 of them.
Perfect

I could not be happier than with this barrel.
I wanted a little more distance and this gave me that and more. I am also getting my 7.5" barrel from Classic..
Quality at a bargain price

Bought this and received it very quickly. Finished my build and ran about 150 rounds through it. Lake city 5.56 55 and 62 grain cycled fine and could detect no difference in accuracy at 100 meters between the two bullet weights. I was able to shoot 4 inch groups at 100 meters with open UTG sights. This is significantly better than my performance using a 16 inch barrel on a Surplus Arms AR with a 1 in 9 twist barrel using the same ammo. I also shot some steel cased 223 Tula ammo and had no problems but accuracy at 100 meters was not as good, but still shot 6" groups. Remains to be seen how it will hold up over the long haul but I suspect it will be fine. This barrel performs well and is inexpensive to boot. I highly recommend it if you are looking for an affordable option for your build.. I am going to use the rifle I built for three gun and I don't anticipate suffering because of my choice in barrels. I know who makes these barrels and I think AR snobs have given them a bad rap because they think inexpensive equals poor quality. That is not the case here.
