Over gassed

Nice fit and finish, head space was good. Decent feed ramps (very sharp ramp edges had to clean them up just a hair) only real problem was the Gass ports too big. Didn't notice this until I test fired it and it threw brass about 1:30. Running a Anderson m16 cut bolt carrier. Bcm buffer spring and a spikes 4 ounce buffer. So yeah the barrel is over gassed. But with the saving buy a adjustable gas block. Very accurate barrel though

Great barrel

Don't let the price fool you. I have four of these. One test I conducted on a rifle with a free floated forend from a prone position. I fired four loads. 55 grain fmj, 75 grain OTM, 55 ballistic tip red, and 55 ballistic tip black. All were fired back to back with 2MOA red dot. Total group was the size of your fist 4" aprox. at 100 yds. I would say, once my rifle is dialed in, I can pick up any magazine, and be within "minute of man" for self defense purposes, no matter what the ammo. That is good enough for me. Buy them up, and make more rifles.

Excellent Barrel

This is an excellent barrel for someone on a budget like I am. Fit and finish is quality. Bore looks great. Accuracy is consistent. I ran several different types of 55gr ammunition (different brands, ballistic tip, hollow point, fmj) through it after sighting it in and they all stacked within the size of a half dollar coin. It's probably not the best barrel for a competitive shooter but I'm sure it would do the job fine. I'll be using it to hunt.**Keep in mind you will have to purchase an aftermarket gas block since it is NOT drilled for the taper pins for a stock style gas block sight. I was told over Brownell's Live Chat function that it WAS drilled for the standard gas block, but fortunately I took a minute to read the reviews and realized I would need to order an aftermarket gas block. No biggie, just wish the Brownell's staff member I spoke to would've been more knowledgeable.

Great barrel!

Purchased two of these barrels. Both were flawless in the finish. Completed two ar's without any issue. Both seem to be accurate with the few rounds that have been fired. I would recommend this barrel to anyone.

Great Buy!

This barrel is very accurate. The 1x8 twist is in my opinion the best for the 223 / 5,56 and will handle all bullet weights from 53 gr. to and including 80 gr. The finish is perfect. No problems with feeding or chambering. I used a Anderson lower receiver, a Aero upper receiver and parts from various other manufacturers to complete this build. Keep in mind, this barrel is not drilled for the front sight tower taper pins.

Looks fantastic, no flaws in machining.

I have read some of these barrels have machining issues with the feed ramps not matching up. No such trouble with mine. Finish had no flaws or extraneous marks. Fit perfectly into my Anderson upper receiver (big surprise right?). Easy break in period. Will definitely be purchasing for future builds.
