    After much research I installed the DDLW 16" barrel on my custom LW AR15 build. The quality is superb and it is very accurate. I've owned it now for almost 2 years and I am happy with my decision.

    Awesome barrel. No break in required, long lasting and shoots MOA with cheap green tip ammo! No point in running any other barrel.

    I have been running this barrel on my AR build for 3 years now shooting off and on. I recently got into 3 gun and this is why I chose this barrel for my build. Light weight, and accurate.

    Great barrel! Have put about 5k rounds thru my DD M4 v7 and this barrel shoots around an inch at 100yds with most ammo. 1in7 twist stabilizes the 77gr loads great. Rifle has never failed to feed or fire and I have utmost confidence in this rifle.

    This is the perfect barrel - perfect weight and perfect profile. It wastes no weight anywhere, but doesn't sacrifice durability. Between the Gas Block and the Muzzle it is the same diameter as between the chamber and the gas block, unlike standard gov't profile barrels, which waste 6oz or so and provide no additional longevity. The .750 gas block seat is perfect for dimpling/pinning the barrel to secure your low-profile gas block for maximum reliability and provides the widest array of parts options.

    The real selling point is Daniel Defense's Cold Hammer Forging. It provides outstanding durability, precision, and quality. I can't recommend this strongly enough.

    (No, in case you're wondering, I don't get paid by DD. I have searched everywhere for the perfect barrel and this is it.)
