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.

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.
