AR-15 16" 5.56 1/8 Twist SOCOM Barrel

Colt Competition Style


This is a once-in-a-lifetime deal! 

The markings on the barrel are the caliber and the twist rate roll stamped in that is the only markings on this barrel.

 

We get these barrels from the same company Colt does and they feature a very special contour that is designed to be lighter than a conventional SOCOM barrel to give you that extra edge when shooting 3-gun competitions.

The barrel also features a special twist 1-8 TPI that is mainly used in competition rifles that allows the shooter to use both 52 and 68 grain match bullets, the most popular bullet weights in competition. 

 

SBN Nitride finish is one of the best barrel finishes on the planet. It has a Rockwell hardness of 90 (Reg barrels are around 35 Rockwell) the finish is in and out so it eliminates the need for chrome lining. The Nitride finish is corrosion resistant and it does not rust even with the use of corrosive ammo and extends the barrel life longer than conventional chrome lining both inside and outside the barrel.

Very nice barrel, crown is clean and finished correctly, threads and rifling nicely cut. Extension and M4 feed ramps correctly machined. Excellent finish. Not a superlight pencil barrel but certainly light enough for patrol rifle use. Shipped quickly and was well packaged. Have not yet shot it but am confident this is a fine barrel. Will update review if I have any problems, but looks good to go. Thanks Delta, De Oppresso Liber.

beautiful
I have built many many ar 15 variants and have 1st hand extension knowledge of many brands and variations and I must say this barrel is fantastic. Awesome groups beautifully machined and very high quality finish. I have ordered several. And although they are not roll stamped "Colt" resale is simple. Keep your receipt. Shipping is a pain here sometimes but for the price I'll wait a little longer.

Great barrel for the money
Overall quality it's really good. Couldn't find any problems or defects. Shoots good groups at 100 yards. I was pleasantly surprised by the weight. It wasn't too heavy nor a pencil barrel so no complaints there. Couldn't find any "colt" Markings or anything but that didn't really matter as long as it works well.
