Quality Materials, Quality Control

Material selection matters in a barrel. We decided to craft the barrel out of 416R Stainless steel to ensure peak accuracy. The reason why was simple - Accuracy matters both at the range and in the real world. That said, this 416R stainless barrel can handle the most adverse environmental situations and still be used in high-precision situations. 

These barrels were made with stringent quality control and have one of the best Nitride finishes that you can find on a barrel. The finish provides superior corrosion resistance as well as a clean look. Finally, the barrels were then fluted to save weight, and dissipate some of the heat that can incur from aggressive courses of fire.  

Versatile and Dependable

We chose a 1:8 twist so that these barrels could be used with the majority of ammo grains. The bottom line is this, if you are looking for a highly reliable and accurate barrel, go with the Dirty Bird 16″ 5.56 NATO 1:8 Mid-length 416R Fluted Barrel.
