End caps round or triangle?Review by Sil
First of all, the barrel I order is outstanding (just the best). I ordered a 16" Wylde Stainless steel Midlength .750 "F" FSB with Handguard End Cap, and Ring Assembly. I feel that in the order form there should be a choice of the style of end cap that one requires; round or triangle. It is very difficult to find a good or cheap handguard or handrail with a Triangle End Cap. I think that the customer should be given a choice. Now I am going go out an buy a round end cap to replace the triangle one that came with my barrel. Give us a listed choice! Again, I think you work is outstanding and I would buy again even if I wasn't given a choice, and I had to replace it myself. 5 STARS TO YOU (Posted on 2/28/2019)
AccurateReview by Cope
I've owned this barrel for close to a year now and I have been thrilled with how it shoots. Black Hills 75gr. OTM groups under .6" along with Federal Sierra Matchking 69gr. BTHP grouping at .4" consistently. These are 5 shot groups at 100yds. with Leopold 4×12 using Harris Bipod and bags under stock, built on Aero receiver using Geissele G2S with cool to warm barrel, never hot. I will definitely be buying the fluted version next time though because it's 5oz. lighter. (Posted on 2/19/2018)
Amazing BarrelReview by C-diddy
I have several of these barrels and they are hands down the best. I would put my money on saying that they beat out the top barrels on the market. (Posted on 1/26/2018)
Great BarrelReview by Chris
I bought this barrel a month or so ago and finally had the time to finish my "SPR" build. This was the first time I ordered or used anything from BA and first off they shipped quick and the barrel was well packed. Secondly the fit and finish is excellent. The pinned lo-pro gas block went together well and it functions flawlessly. I fired it tonight for the first time with regular M193 and M855 and was surprised to see it grouping under 1 MOA. I can't wait to try some Black Hills to see what it can do as long as I do my part. Excellent buy, and I will be ordering barrels from BA in the future.. (Posted on 3/26/2017)
Top Notch!*Review by Hans
First off, I purchased and received this barrel, but did not remove it from its sealed, clear plastic packaging. I have not shot it, but from my visual observations alone the finish is impeccable and the care in packaging superb. I ordered this barrel after buying an AR Stoner 16" mid-gas fluted stainless barrel from MidwayUSA, and being really turned off by how poorly it was packaged and at the crud that was down the barrel when it arrived. (MidwayUSA is a top-notch company, and they accepted it for a full refund.) The only reason I have not used my Ballistic Advantage barrel yet is because of my personal choice to exchange it for the 18", rifle-gas version. Given how pristinely the 16" arrived, I have every expectation that the 18" will be a top notch performer! I will post a review of it once it arrives and I've put it through its paces.
