Battle Arms 18" BC .750 Ultramatch RIGID Wylde Fluted Stainless Steel AR15 Barrel
Battle Arms Development 18" Ultramatch RIGID™ 416R Stainless Steel .223 Wylde Fluted Barrel. The RIGID (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. When only the best barrel will do for your AR15 build!

To date we have 7 of these barrels on builds that we have for our summer youth camp and I can say without reservation these are by far the very best Barrels I have ever used in any of my builds over the past 25 years. We go through roughly 5,000 rounds per barrel every year and to date those kids have put over 20,000 rounds through each of the builds. These barrel are unbelievable. They are extremely accurate and still show very little signs of wear. Given we do take exceptionally good care of our equipment but still that's a lot of lead down range for any Barrel. Over the years I have used more than my share of Barrels and brands than I care to remember and these are by far the absolute best hands down. Great job Battle Arms. Because of your attention to detail and quality these Barrels put smiles on hundreds of childrens faces every year. Thank you.
