Hanson Series Barrels
" BA Hanson Series Barrels provide a lightweight feel without lightweight limitations. Every barrel in the BA Hanson Series was designed specifically to its length and caliber to yield the best results with every aspect taken into consideration. It is truly ideal for how the AR was meant to perform. With the BA Hanson Profile, we found a more efficient way to harness a bullet's energy while limiting felt recoil considerably. The balanced feel and overall performance of a Hanson barrel will create a more organic relationship between you and your rifle. It will simply be an extension of you! "

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.
Can’t go wrong Review by Donovan
Overall 5 STAR
This barrel literally fixes everything wrong with most barrels on the market.. No more front heavy “mil spec” Cut for a M203 Grenade launcher and the pinned gas block gives you piece of mind ... the tapered barrel balances the weight perfectly. Matched up with a Nitride BCG and VG6 muzzle device... I have almost zero recoil and the logo on the BCG is nice. Even with cheap Black Friday special 55grain 223 ammo I’m getting 1” groups at a 100 yards. I am so confident in my rifle now that I passed on all my bolt action high power rifles that I never shoot, and harvested a 102lb doe this last season with my AR... I can’t say enough, I will only use BA barrels on my builds.
Just what I was looking for Review by James

This is my third BA barrel and again I'm impressed with the quality and attention to detail. Fast shipping and a great value with their special price point.
Great, Reliable, Banlanced Review by Pat
Overall 5 STAR
Barrel is top of the line! The FailZero nickel boron coated extended M4 feed ramp pairs perfectly with my Aero Precision upper. The 1/7 twist, at least in my experience loved the 62 grain, shot great with 77grain as well. I like how the gas block is pinned and the finish if top notch. Ballistic advantage makes some high quality barrels!
