Cobalt Kinetics AR-15 16" .223 Wylde, 1:8T, 5R Rifling, Mid Gas, Nitride, 4150 CrMoV Barrel
General Barrel Info: The barrel on an AR-15 originally operates under a 'gas impingement' system, by tapping gas off of the barrel and cycling it back through the gas system to assist the bolt carrier in unlocking and extracting the spent cartridge. AR-15 Barrels come in four different specifications for gas systems, Pistol, Carbine, Mid-Length, and Rifle. AR-15 Barrels vary between profiles as well from Government, to Heavy, and Slim. Thanks to the modularity of AR-15, you can choose different calibers starting with the barrel, each with its specific twist rates. Choosing your barrel for your next AR-15 build has never been easier.
About This Barrel: This barrel is 16-inches long and crafted from 4150 CMV to keep it strong and reliable. It is chambered in .223 Wylde and has a classic 1:8 twist rate. It operates on a mid gas system and has a deep black finish.
Barrel Classification: Rifle
Length: This Barrel is designated as rifle barrel with a overall 16" length.
Caliber: .223Wylde - This barrel is chambered to fire both .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO, the most commonly used round designed for the AR-15 platform. .223 Wylde is a commercial specification of 5.56 NATO and will still allow you to chamber and fire 5.56 NATO cartridges.
Material: Chrome-Moly Vanadium, or simply "CMV", is the official mil-spec gun steel developed by Colt Firearms for the military-issued M16 and M4. It contains the same elements as 4150 steel. It also contains Vanadium. Vanadium significantly increases the strength, hardness, and high-temperature stability of the steel.
Finish: Nitride - Nitriding is a process during manufacturing that diffuses nitrogen into the steel to make a case-hardened surface for improved resistance and strength. A Nitrided barrel typically has a gloss black texture.
