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.

Light in weight, but heavy in qualityAfter 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.
Great product, flawless, indestructibleTop of the line awesome barrel, everything about it top notch
Great product! Outstanding customer service.Awesome barrel. No break in required, long lasting and shoots MOA with cheap green tip ammo! No point in running any other barrel.

best barrel you could ever have. accuracy+manueverability+toughness in one.Two thumbs up for this one!!! Meets all my expectations!!!
Excellent 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.
A barrel you can count on!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.
Best Barrel Currently Available.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.)
