Modern Outfitters recently began offering their beautiful Spiral Fluted .223 Wylde barrels for individual purchase instead of just in a complete upper/rifle. These barrels are made from 4150 CMV steel, have a Melonite finish, 1:8 Twist, chambered in the awesome .223 Wylde (it’s a hybrid chamber that shoots both .223 and 5.56 but shoots 5.56 more accurately than a 5.56 barrel) and an 11 degree target crown. Currently you can choose between 14.7″ or 18″ barrel but I’ve heard there may be a 16″ version coming along shortly as well.

3 New 5R Rifled .308 Barrels from Faxon Firearms

Posted on March 7th, 2016 by ar15news

If you remember back to the beginning of 2015 we predicted that the .308 AR market was going to explode and it absolutely did. The increase in demand for the AR-10 has brought great new products at amazing prices from many companies and that definitely includes Faxon Firearms. Faxon just added 3 more barrels to their line of .308 barrels bringing the total to 12 different models. These new barrels all feature 5R rifling vs the traditional rifling of the other .308 barrels Faxon offers and are available in 3 different models, all with a QPQ (Nitride, Melonite, same thing) finish.

The three new models are: 
16″ .308 – 4150 – Medium Taper – Mid Gas – QPQ 
18″ .308 – 4150 – Medium Taper – Mid Gas – QPQ 
18″ .308 – 416-R – Heavy Fluted – Mid Gas – QPQ

These new barrels range in price from $269 to $329 and are available right now for both customers and dealers at www.FaxonFirearms.com

NEW!! Rainier Arms 22″ Fluted Varmint Barrel – .223RVC

Posted on February 26th, 2016 by ar15news

Many of us AR owners love to use our ARs for more than just shooting paper. We like to hunt with them, we practice self defense with them, teach our family and friends how to safely handle firearms and we also like to use them for Varmint control. Most Varmint style ammunition uses a light weight polymer tip and usually comes in much lighter grain projectiles than your standard .223/5.56 ammo. The issue is lighter ammo like that typically needs a different twist rate than most AR barrels to stabilize the bullet and shoot accurate. With Varmints usually being smaller, fast moving animals, accuracy (or lack thereof) can be an issue. Rainier Arms recognized a need for this type of barrel and has introduced their new barrels with .223RVC (Rainier Varmint Chamber) that is specifically designed to shoot the lighter Varmint rounds with Sub-MOA accuracy guaranteed with match ammo. 

Rainier Arms RVC 223 Varmint Barrel 1

These new barrels start out as Rock Creek stainless steel match grade blanks and then machined to Rainier Arms strict specifications. The barrels are 22″ long with 1:12 Twist, have M4 feed ramps and a .936 Gas Block Seat.

Rainier Arms RVC 223 Varmint Barrel 1

The only thing you need to decide is if you want a barrel finished with a Target Crown or threaded 1/2×28 for standard AR-15 muzzle devices.

Rainier Arms RVC 223 Varmint Barrel 1

These are some pretty great looking barrels and would definitely be the perfect start to your next varmint rifle build. I’m picturing these under a nice free floated 15″ tube of some sort taking out varmints like nobodies business. You can take a look at these two barrels and get more information on them at www.RainierArms.com.

Faxon Firearms is quickly becoming known for more than their ARAK-21 upper. They started offering AR-15 barrels a few years ago and it has grown into a massive selection of barrels in many calibers and many lengths. Their most popular barrel is a 16″ Mid Gas Gov’t Profile Nitride barrel. At the request of their customers, Faxon Firearms has just introduced a 14.5″ version of this barrel. I’ve not personally used a Faxon barrel but know quite a few people who have and do and they’re all very happy with them. At $165 its a hard deal to pass up!

KAK Industry Adds 3 New 9mm Barrels To Their Value Line

Posted on February 6th, 2016 by ar15news

KAK Industry does a ton of OEM work for other companies, especially a lot of barrels. Since they’re already machining tons of barrels they decided to start offering a value line of barrels last year which has grown into a very large selection of available barrels. These barrels all have a Melonite finish inside and out are very well made. These are the type of barrels you would see on shelves for $175-200 all day long but because KAK Industry makes these themselves the price is usually closer to $100 and some times less. With the growing popularity of Pistol Caliber ARs, specifically 9mm, it was only a matter of time that KAK added 9mm barrels to the list. 

KAK Industry 9mm Value Line Barrels copy

KAK Industry just released 3 new 9mm barrels. These barrels are a 4″, 8″ and 16″. All have a Melonite finish, 1/2×36 threads and 1:10 Twist. As with pretty much all 9mm AR barrels, these are all Straight Blowback which means they do not require a Gas Block or Gas Tube. One of the most impressive points is that they start at just $80. Links and pics below.
