KAK Industry has started compiling all of their over run stuff into one place on the website and they are calling it their Value Line. They have a wide selection of 5.56, 300BLK and 7.62×39 melonite barrels available that are all priced ridiculously low. I have a few of their Value Line barrels and they run awesome. If you’re looking to build a great running AR on a budget, you might want to check out all of the KAK Industry Value Line barrels first.

ODIN Works just announced they will be doing something pretty cool for those looking to build a 6.5 Grendel AR. Now when you purchase one of their 6.5 Grendel Barrels you will automatically get a free Nitride BCG and a Gas Block. This eliminates one of the headaches with building alternate caliber ARs which is finding a good BCG and Bolt to go with that caliber.

NEW!! Faxon Firearms 14.5″ 5.56, M4 PROFILE QPQ Barrel

Posted on October 19th, 2015 by ar15news

If you’ve been looking for a new barrel but haven’t been looking at one from Faxon Firearms, odds are you’ve missed exactly what you were looking for. Over the past few years, Faxon Firearms took their knowledge from creating barrels for their ARAK-21 uppers and applied that to making barrels for standard AR-15 uppers and have created a huge list of different profiles, lengths and calibers that they offer. They just introduced a new 14.5″ 5.56, M4 PROFILE, CARBINE GAS, 4150 STEEL QPQ barrel which, like all other Faxon Firearms barrels comes in at a great price point. At just $165, this should be a no-brainer. If this isn’t the profile, length or caliber you are looking for, chances are you can find it on their website. Check it out at

All 9mm AR Barrels Are Back In-Stock at Quarter Circle 10

Posted on October 16th, 2015 by ar15news

Many of you guys have been following along with my new 9mm AR build and noticed that their 9mm barrels were out of stock for a bit. Good news for those looking to start their 9mm build, they are officially fully restocked. They currently have 3.5″, 5.5″, 7.5″, 10.5″, 14.5″ and 16″ barrels ready to go. Most guys go for the shorter barrels because “Its a pistol caliber” but I’ve seen 100 yard groupings on paper with a 16″ 9mm QC10 barrel that were 1MOA which is pretty impressive. If you’re looking to start that next 9mm build, head on over and snag a barrel or two from QC10.

Criterion Barrels is well known as a supplier of DPMS pattern .308 AR barrels for a wide variety of premium rifle manufacturers.

Designed to accommodate a wide spectrum of rifle build configurations, barrels range in length from 16 to 22 inches.

KAK Industry Contract Overrun Barrel Blowout

Posted on August 26th, 2015 by ar15news

Have you ever wondered what happens when a manufacturer makes a bunch of product for an OEM client, only to have them not pay their bill? Well, when it happens to KAK they make sure that you the customer get a hookup! This is exactly what happened to our friends at KAK Industry recently and they made sure to let us know so we can tell you.

All of the barrels listed below are 41V50 steel with a Melonite finish for superior durability and corrosion resistance. Typically you would pay $250+ for these barrels but since you get to cut out the middle man and buy directly from the manufacturer, they are blowing them out at $100-110 each. These are NOT BLEM barrels! You can choose from 8.5″, 10.5″ and 16″ 300BLK with 1:8 Twist or a 16″ 5.56 with 1:7 Twist. The 16″ 300BLK with pistol length gas is a cool one for those looking to build a 16″ 300BLK that cycles subs without a can and the 16″ length helps it not be as loud as a shorter barrel.

11.0 5.56 NATO CARBINE 1:9  –  $100
16.0 5.56 NATO CARBINE 1:7  –  $110

I personally have used quite a few KAK Industry barrels over the past few years and they are an extremely good value. Being able to get them for just $100 is a steal! I seriously would recommend picking up a few for future builds.
