Always happy with BA

BA makes some of the best AR barrels. I own several and they all shoot submoa and the look great too.

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We're glad we are satisfied with your purchase!

Quality Barrel

I have not yet shot nor finished my build however I’m very impressed with the quality and style of the barrel. If it shoots like it looks, it will be a winner! Thank you AT3 Tactical for a great product at a great price! It’s a pleasure to do business with you! Keep up the excellent work, it’s much appreciated!

great barrel, it was for a custom build

installed, it goes bang, seems to be very accurate up to 100 yards, which is plenty for a 16 inch carbine rifle, and that is as far a sI;ve shot it.

Thanks for sharing your feedback! We're glad you're satisfied with your purchase.

Nice overall design however long headspace

I like the fluted lightweight and stiff design of this barrel. However, as shipped, when tested with Forster 223 headspace guages, a brand new Lantac bolt (and another used bolt) with the extractor and ejector removed closes on both the go and nogo guages. It does not close on the field guage. Seems like for a Wylde chamber it'll be working the brass awful hard between reloads. BA apparently cuts Wylde chamber headspace real long as they said this was normal for them on a previous Wylde barrel of theirs.

Thanks for sharing your feedback! We're glad you're satisfied with your purchase.
