All Ballistic Advantage 5.45×39 AR Barrels On Sale

Posted on July 25th, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends at Ballistic Advantage make some pretty sweet AR Barrels. I just noticed that all of their 5.45×39 barrels are on sale through the end of the month. 5.45×39 is a round used in Russian weapons such as the AK74 but recently gained popularity in the AR market due to its inexpensive prices. Unfortunately the least expensive version of 5.45×39 ammunition, 7N6, was banned from import but you can still find standard 5.45×39 ammunition for just over $.20 per round. Ballistic Advantage offers 16 different 5.45×39 barrels including 7.5″, 10.5″, 14.5″, 16″, 18″ SPR, 20″ DMR and more of different barrel contours. All barrels have a QPQ corrosion resistant coating and include a Wolf Extra Power Hammer Spring. This is one of, if not the largest selection of 5.45×39 barrels I’ve seen and they are ALL on sale right now for just $150 each. If you’re like me and stocked up on 5.45×39 ammo before the ban happened or just want to build something a bit different, now is a great time to do it at www.BallisticAdvantage.com.

Had a nice time sighting in / function testing a couple of my newer AR’s at the range the other day. I typically shoot on private land but bench shooting is a good way to get your guns out, put some rounds through them and make sure they are running good. For the most part there were no issues but any AR builder will tell you it only takes one small issue to throw a monkey wrench in there.

620 CIV Tactical SPR AERO Precision AR Pistol Vortex opticsClick to enlarge

The rifle has an upper built by CIV Tactical using receivers are from Tactical Firearms Solutions. CIV Tactical used their excellent 18″ SPR barrel and Matched Bolt that are known for getting some extremely low sub-MOA results. I used an older Bolt Carrier with the supplied bolt and figured everything would be fine. When the rifle wouldn’t eject a single round I knew there was something going on. Instead of just giving up and using the other AR I brought I decided to try to figure out was the issue was. After trying 2 different lowers, 4 different mags and 2 different types of ammo I decided to try a different BCG. Swapped it out and it ran like a Sewing Machine. I know the Matched Bolt is good as it was test fired with that exact Bolt so it’s pretty obvious I can narrow it down to the Bolt Carrier such as a leaky Gas Key. Looks like I threw in my own monkey wrench.  LoL  

The point is if you think logically through your failures and start eliminating possible issues, you can quite often move past the issues with the rifle and still get in some good trigger time. Oh, and bring some tools and small parts with you when test firing a rifle for the first time.  :)

The rail on the SPR is a Parallax Tactical FFSSR rail. It also has an ATLAS Bipod with ADM mouth and the Stock is the LUTH-AR MBA-1 that you can buy from www.MidwestPX.com. The AR Pistol is all AERO Precision with an Odin Works 10.5″ Barrel, Primary Weapons CQB comp and a KAK Industry Super Sig Tube. Both guns have Vortex Optics…optics.

Faxon Firearms is definitely most well known for their amazing ARAK-21 Piston Upper that includes a proprietary quick change barrel system. They’ve proven they know how to produce a quality upper and barrels and have recently started making standard AR-15 barrels as well. Because they are making these barrels in-house, they are able to offer a quality product at an amazing price point. They have a great selection of barrels and different lengths but their two newest barrel offerings are the 7.5″ Pistol Length Gas barrel and a 10.5″ Carbine Length Gas barrel. I’ve listed the details below. Check out the full line of AR-15 barrels at www.FaxonFirearms.com.
