ELD Performance "Gashkin" AR-15 8" OAL, .45 ACP, 4150 CrMoV, 1-16T, .578x28 Nitride Barrel
General Barrel Info: The barrel on a .45ACP AR-15 barrel operates under 'direct blowback' there is no gas system directly connected to a 9mm AR-15 barrel for the system to cycle. By design .45ACP AR-15 barrels are affordable and come in many sizes, rifle, and pistol. This includes many of the familiar barrel profiles found on standard/common AR-15 platforms. Building an AR-15 chambered in .45ACP is a great choice for training and for your next Pistol Caliber Carbine build.
