10k rounds, looks newPurchased one of these barrels approx. August 2011. Since then (8 yrs) it's been 3-gunned, tac carbine coursed, rapid fired, fed a buffet of junk ammo, submerged, and transplanted to different uppers twice. After cleaning yesterday, the barrel still inspects to literally "like new" condition. Scoping the bore I find no indication of wear or irregularity in the chrome lining anywhere. Phosphate coating is unscratched. Shoots 1 MOA with bulk 55gr PMC bronze ammo. I'm now quite certain this barrel will last longer than I will.
outstandingAmazing accuracy even after 11k rounds on a government profile 14.5" carbine gas. I'm here today to purchase a 16" midlength.
Great productVery happy with my purchase. Accurate and flawless
Most accurate & durable AR barrel for any priceBest combination of accuracy, durability, reliability, and cost. I've had 5 Daniel Defense 16" 1:7 twist Govt and LW barrels and compared them to premium stainless barrels from BCM, Larue, Colt, and even Daniel Defense's Mk12 barrel. The Govt Profile, chrome lined 1:7 twist that you make are the most consistently accurate AR barrels I have ever owned at any price point.
