Robust, AccurateHot barrels loose consistancy... These cold hammer forged barrels are more resilient to this affliction. With decent ammo easily moa. My hand loads shoot 1/4 moa for the first 20 rounds or so and open up to an inch when hot and dirty. (16 inch gov contour) will be purchasing another soon.
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.
