Best basic barrel ever...Review by IntelMerc
Overall 5 STAR
Full disclosure, I purchased this barrel from another authorized dealer for a great price. I mounted this barrel into an Aero Precision M4E1 upper, surrounded it with an AP 12" enhanced quad rail, and capped it off with a KAK flash can. I have a BA NiB BCG and a BMC medium charging handle. The complete upper looks sweeet! The muzzle just pokes out of the rail by a 1/2 inch. It's perfect! I mounted the upper on a closed ear Anderson lower with a SB3 brace, ALG A.C.T. trigger, and a Magpul K2 grip. AR pistols are great, but the typical 9" rail don't work for me. The 12" rail keeps my support arm straight, while my primary wrist is straight using that K2. A wise man once said that "straight lines are strong...". After getting on paper with a Primary Arms 1x Cyclops at 50 meters, the accuracy with this 10,5" 5.56 barrel was immediately evident with a 1 inch triangle group using my plinker 55gr handloads. 200 rounds later, I was tearing a ragged hole into a 3x5 card at the 50 and 100. What more do I need from an AR pistol?

Outstandingly satisfied!!! Fit and finish are extraordinary. I purchased the pinned FSB additionally. Everything arrived as expected and I am very satisfied. Configured everything into a pistol setup and my first few shots were surprising. Currently, ran 150 Wolf steel cased .223 cartridges, flawless operation. I expected some initial hiccups, but I did not encounter any such issues. Also, Ballistic Advantage's lightning fast shipping makes them a first rate, top tier firearms manufacturer and distributor. If you are on the fence about purchasing any of their line-up, don't delay. As soon as they are available, their barrels ship out fast.
