Manufactured 100% in-house from gun-barrel-quality bar stock, the Match Series AR-15 Barrel starts with premium 416R stainless and proven 5R rifling. 5R rifling reduces projectile deformation, keeping the bullet more uniform—and thus more accurate—once it has left the muzzle. 5R rifling also makes the barrel much easier to clean.

The Barrel is chambered in .223 Wylde, a hybrid chambering that the 5R rifling takes full advantage of. The .223 Wylde chamber can safely fire 5.56 NATO and .223 Remington projectiles with no compromises in performance. The Gunner profile combines the best features of both the government profile and pencil profile to create a barrel that's versatile and light up-front, while still being robust and resistant to heat at the rear.

Each Barrel is fully and individually MPI-tested for your safety. After rigorous testing, the barrels are nitride-treated inside and out, locking in the bore, improving barrel life, and keeping the elements at bay.
