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.
