Good value

Update to my previous review. Still think it's a good quality barrel, but noticed after I started assembly that there is no provision to pin on a gas block. Not thrilled, but for the price it's still a reasonably good deal. Support your local gunsmith.

I have zero complaints about this barrel. The pice was great and the shipping was quick. If you are looking for a perfect looking barrel for your safe queen look elsewhere. If you want a good deal on a decent stainless fluted barrel that is plenty accurate and looks decent then this one's for you. To be honest, not picky, the edges of the flutes are a little sharp and rough although nothing I couldn't fix with some 1500 grit sandpaper. The barrel looks as though it wasn't handled like glass so there are a few tiny dings on it that are no big deal to me. I've shot about 500-600 rounds through it and it's as accurate at 50 yards using a Vortex
Strikefire red dot as any I own. I traded my scope with my long range AR15 and I'm trying to decide what to replace it with. I'll update my accuracy review after I get a new scope.
Great buy

Love this barrel, it was a Christmas present to myself. Was excellent customer service an instant shipping. Haven't shot it yet but it will be soon. The inside is beautiful an very shiny. I keep it clean in an out with qtips an Hoppies gun oil. The Fed ramps are perfect. The caliber markings are at the one O'clock upside down. But it's not even remotely a issue. I would definitely buy another. An more than likely will. Thanks Classic Firearms.
Excellent barrel, cant wait till they get more in.

First, Classic customer service is excellent! I had some questions about my order and the ladies there were on target! Let me know everything! Now for the barrel, Feed ramps were cut perfect. The finish is spectacular for the price! Only one thing, the cal markings are off center as another reviewer noted. But flutes were machined smoothly, and from what I can tell from the groups it has excellent potential with a competent shooter behind the trigger. (I am not the best) but I get 2" groups at 100 yds. Overall, if they had more I would be all over another. Thanks Classic for an awesome product!
nice!

extremely impressed with barrel and pricing. minor tooling marks, but very comparable to many VERY expensive ar15 I have seen. I would buy these and give them as presents. nice threading.
Great barrel for the money
Review by pat on 1/19/14

As common in other reviews, my barrel arrived with scratches and tooling marks. Not a big deal for me since this will be a shooter and the YHM quad rail covers most of the barrel. I am not a gunsmith or marksman, but barrel assembled well with aero precision upper and the muzzle threads were clean. I personally thought the identifying marks were in an odd location, being in the 1 o'clock position. I contacted the manufacture and received an immediate response. Tim said the new production line has markings at 12:00. This is my third order through Classicfirearms, first being a non- firearm. Shipping took about two weeks due to Black Friday madness. I am very happy with the product and will order through Classicfirearms agin!!

Exceptional value

I am quite pleased with this barrel, although not quite as refined as a Wilson barrel, but also doesn't cost an arm & leg either. The performance of the barrel is exceptional. I think this just might be a diamond in the rough.
Great bang for the Buck

Found this barrel while searching for pre-Black Friday bargains wasn't expecting too much for the price! I was really blown away when it came in it was a sturdy fluted s/s barrel that looked really great! After I got it all set up in my upper I couldn't wait to shoot! Very accurate barrel cleaned up great after a day of shooting and I have already ordered another for myself and now my brother wants one!
Great Service and Product

Ordered this barrel for an AR build that I am doing. This will make an excellent rifle when parred with my billet upper and lower.

Great bang for the buck

For the price I wasn't expecting much, but after unpacking I was impressed. Headspaces good, great looking rifling, muzzle threads are perfect, flutes are nice and even with crisp edges. Way better than what you should get for this price.
Decent Stainless Barrel
Review by TheGunShop&TradingPost on 12/15/13

Rifling looks great. Once on an upper the barrel looks even better (some black offsets the wall of shine). Specs are awesome and price is very good as well.

Downside is that the flutes are rough...machine marks in spots like something hit while fluting...if you are super picky on cosmetics, this isn't for you. If a couple minor marks isn't a big deal then it seems to be a great barrel for the price.
Not perfect, but good value
Review by Shughes53 on 12/13/13

I got this not really knowing what to expect. The barrel has nice rifling and sharp fluting. It was a little dirty, with something like soot on the threads and sides. Wiped off with no problem. However, the barrel also has a few dings in the side. It seemed to be packed well so maybe this was manufacturer thing. Either way, it shouldn't affect the performance much if any. Just be aware that if you're looking for a gorgeous stainless barrel to show off on your next build, don't expect perfection here. For the price, though, it seems good. Can't wait to build and test it out!
