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.

Perfect barrel to center around a build.My first build. Trying to see how far I can shoot with an AR-15 platform and also use it for deer hunting. Extremely accurate at short distances (haven't found a long range yet). Unsure of the exact moa due to me shivering and and having a improperly mounted scope. Once it warms up I will get the opportunity to scretch it out and put it through the paces. Love the DD parts I used and the barrel specifically. Let's all pray the Army adopts the 6.8 so it becomes the new 5.56.
Sweet 6.8This is the third DD barrel that I have built on. Two 5.56 and then this 6.8, cant say enough good things about this product. Chambers are tight and accuracy is superb
Good stuff and will buy againThis is the third barrel from you guys. Two 5.56, and this 6.8. I love your barrels, accurate, well priced and shipping is quick. Keep up the good work !!
