High Value 5.56 Barrel for the Working American

Low cost and high value components can be hard to come by – luckily, Diamondback Firearms delivers with their barrels.  This midlength barrel features a corrosion resistant black nitride finish inside and out, ensuring longevity and protection from the elements.  The midlength gas system offers a more mild recoil impulse than standard carbine length barrels as well, making for a more comfortable shooting experience overall.  Plus, the 1-8 twist ensures compatibility with a wide variety of ammo, from standard full metal jacket rounds for practice, to heavier match-grade loads where higher accuracy is key.  All in all, solid specs on a barrel for your next do-it-all AR15 build.

Great product for the price

I needed to quickly build a 16in and choose the diamondback because of the great price point but still quality material. Everything came as it should very quickly, install went great and after my first test fire and zero. It was running super smooth, hitting my 8inch gong at 100yards on iron sights.
