GREAT BARRELS Review by Billy
This is my 3rd barrel from Ballistic Advantage. They are great and i will not buy from anyone else. (Posted on 1/21/2019)
Great barrelReview by Timothy
I installed this barrel in a BA upper and mated to a BA lower with Luth-AR MBA-1 rifle stock. At 100 yards you can cover 5 shots with a dime, and sub MOA at 300 yards. At 500 yards the group opened up but this is due more to shooter than rifle, 10'' X 18'' targets get small at 500 yards when using a 1 to 8X scope with 53 year old eyes that wear progressive bifocals. Beautifully finished barrel, extremely accurate, and I would highly recommend. (Posted on 12/31/2018)
Couldn't be happierReview by Michael
Took my New AR out for another range session this time shooting some Hornady 75 grain hollow point match ammo and it shot incredibly well. I couldn't be happier with this barrel (Posted on 11/27/2017)
MOA all day. Very Happy!Review by Patrick
BA upholds their MOA guarantee, and their customer service was excellent! Installed this barrel and was able to shoot under an inch @100 with cheap American Eagle FMJ ammo. Don't know how you could ask for much more... (Posted on 11/22/2017)
Best price for a Fantastic Match Grade BarrelReview by Rich

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! "
