What is BA Hanson?
The BA Hanson Series exemplifies the quality and accuracy you have come to expect from Ballistic Advantage. BA Hanson Profile barrels feature a shoulder-less design, symmetrically limiting barrel “whip” and allowing the barrel too quickly return to its home position. This is extremely beneficial for follow up shots at a high rate of fire or full auto fire. Lightweight feel without the lightweight limitations, it is truly ideal for how an AR-15 is designed to perform.
Very Impressed Review by Erick
Overall 5 STAR
I had heard about the BA barrels, but had yet to use one in any of my builds. My first thought was "how can it be awesome for that price?" Well, when I received my fluted 16" SPR barrel I was amazed right out of the gate. The finish was impeccable and it felt solid. The fluting was perfect, and to be honest it looked like a work of art. I bought this for my new Mega Arms build, and it looks sweet sitting under a 15" handguard. This is definitely a class act all the way.... Thanks BA!
