Can’t go wrong Review by Donovan
This barrel literally fixes everything wrong with most barrels on the market.. No more front heavy “mil spec” Cut for a M203 Grenade launcher and the pinned gas block gives you piece of mind ... the tapered barrel balances the weight perfectly. Matched up with a Nitride BCG and VG6 muzzle device... I have almost zero recoil and the logo on the BCG is nice. Even with cheap Black Friday special 55grain 223 ammo I’m getting 1” groups at a 100 yards. I am so confident in my rifle now that I passed on all my bolt action high power rifles that I never shoot, and harvested a 102lb doe this last season with my AR... I can’t say enough, I will only use BA barrels on my builds. (Posted on 2/11/2019)
Just what I was looking for.Review by James
This is my third BA barrel and again I'm impressed with the quality and attention to detail. Fast shipping and a great value with their special price point. (Posted on 9/4/2018)
Great, Reliable, Banlanced Review by Pat
Barrel is top of the line! The FailZero nickel boron coated extended M4 feed ramp pairs perfectly with my Aero Precision upper. The 1/7 twist, at least in my experience loved the 62 grain, shot great with 77grain as well. I like how the gas block is pinned and the finish if top notch. Ballistic advantage makes some high quality barrels! (Posted on 11/6/2017)
Outstanding.Review by James
This was my first BA build, I went all in and bought the BA NiB BCG as well.
1. This barrel is on a level of finish that I have not experienced in building ARs.
It is perfect from one end to the other. No tool marks and a flawless QPQ finish.
2. Its accurate beyond its stated guarantee. I am getting half MOA groups at 100 yards.
Mind that those results are on a rest but if you do your part you will be delighted with
the results.
3. The balance on the BA profile is really good weight is reduced as well my entire build
is under 7lbs.
Believe the Hype. BA is the genuine article.

Hanson Series Barrels

" BA Hanson Series Barrels provide a lightweight feel without lightweight limitations. Every barrel in the BA Hanson Series was designed specifically to its length and caliber to yield the best results with every aspect taken into consideration. It is truly ideal for how the AR was meant to perform. With the BA Hanson Profile, we found a more efficient way to harness a bullet's energy while limiting felt recoil considerably. The balanced feel and overall performance of a Hanson barrel will create a more organic relationship between you and your rifle. It will simply be an extension of you! "
