Cold Hammer Forging of barrels has been known for decades to produce the most accurate, longest lasting rifle barrels obtainable. The Cold Hammer Forging of barrels is accomplished through intense hydraulic pressure applied at opposing angles by carbide steel hammers. During the hammering process, a mandrel is inserted into the bore while the carbide steel hammers shape the barrel around the mandrel creating the chamber, the lands, and the grooves. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, the Cold Hammer Forging process creates a defect free bore and the most consistent chamber possible.

Best barrel on the market hands down.I have this barrel along with a DD BCG and the reliability is outstanding. For a short lightweight barrel it has exceeded my expectations for accuracy. I bought this barrel knowing that I was going to put many many rounds of steel cased ammo through it and it was going to take a beating. Thousands of rounds later and it’s still shooting amazing.
14.5 Middy LWI've had this barrel since early 2013 with an estimated round count of a little over 4,000 rounds. Mostly been used for rifle/carbine training courses with no issues. I was worried that the lightweight profile would affect accuracy but the cold hammer forged barrel is very accurate and I feel it's going to last a long time.
14.5 equals carbine gasThis barrel is 2ounces heavier than the carbine gas. I have the carbine gas, cause 7” til the muzzle is within the design parameter and has been FULLY vetted by the US military.
Great BBL.Great barrel! Feather light, super quality. Excellent accuracy.
Worth the money.I'm used to $450 cut-rifled match barrels on my NM Ar's. I never expected a chrome lined, hammer forged barrel to shoot this good. Barrel far exceeded my expectations with respect to accuracy. An absolute tack driver. I put this on my wifes M4 and she loves the light weight. This would be excellent on a patrol rifle, or LE DMR type rifle.
14.5 LW barrelLove these barrels. Quality and performance, doesn't get much better than that. I have used these barrels in the past and they are really all I want. The 14.5 LW is the way to go. I have yet to find another barrel to match the weight in this profile and length.
