Barrel came in fine. Was loos in box, no padding, and threads were not covered. Once I obtain the rest for my build, I will see how the barrel functions. Shipping was fast

Stuart Stiles
Excellent set up

Barrel worked beautifully. No issues installing. After 600 rounds still punching awesome groups. Highly recommended.

We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us, Stuart. We work hard to meet expectations like yours, and we’re happy to hear we hit the mark for you. Cheers! - AB

Brian Blitch
Good barrel, slightly damaged

I received this barrel super fast and installed it without issue. It wasn't until I went to install my muzzle break that I found the threading at the tip of the barrel was bent at the end (almost as if some one dropped it at an angle on the tip, which would not be a manufacturer defect). I was anxious to get my build done, so I didnt bother trying to send it back; after a few minutes of careful banging with a screwdriver and hammer, the offending groove bent into shape well enough for me to install the break. Fired great once I got her sighted in. No other complaints and I would definitely order again. Debated leaving 5 stars since the damage isn't a reflection of the barrel, but I suppose we are eating the overall experience after all.

We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us, Brian. Sorry for the troubles in regards to the tip of the barrel. All of our products are backed up with AT3 forever warranty, please send us an email if you run into issues in the future. -AB
