Battle Arms 16" Ultramatch LIGHTRIGID 416R SS .223 Wylde Fluted Lightweight Barrel 1:8 Twist
Battle Arms Development 16" Ultramatch LIGHTRIGID™ 416R Stainless Steel .223 Wylde Fluted Lightweight Barrel. The LIGHTRIGID (TM) Barrels are made "in-house" as an exclusive collaboration between Northtech Defense and Battle Arms Development. We do not use barrel blanks from 3rd parties.The barrels are gun drilled from certified gun barrel grade 416R stainless steel bars under extreme high pressure with specially made tooling (over 1000 psi of pressure that would blow up many traditional tools) that reduced the re-cuts to almost none. The fluid flow rate or GPM is also much higher to flush out the re-cuts and to cool the barrel so not to damage the barrel. All BAD INC LIGHTRIGID (TM) barrels are made with our own buttons, reamers, ultra tight tolerance specifications, proprietary barrel contour, etc. Each barrel is cryogenically treated and double heat treat / stress relieved for extended barrel life, cold bore shot consistency, minimal thermal drift and ultimate accuracy. Part of the secret is the proprietary method of button rifling that provides ultra tight concentricity and consistent bore diameter.
Similar quality level match fluted barrels run in the $700 range. Battle Arms is still relatively new and the best kept secret to the high-end barrel market. They never make a single product that isn't meant to be best in its category or set a new class of its own. If you're not happy with their barrels, they will take it back for full refund. If you're not happy, we're not happy. When only the best barrel will do for your AR15 build! ***ALSO AVAILABLE IN BLACK CONTRAST FINISH** 416R STAINLESS STEEL AR-15 MATCH BARREL LIGHTRIGID™ PROPRIETARY BARREL CONTOUR & FLUTING 1:8 TWIST .625" GAS BLOCK DIA.
