Tactical Match Series
AR-15 16" M4 Contour .223 Wylde 1:8 Twist Carbine Phosphate Barrel
XX-TREME Barrel Company prides itself on cryo-treating every barrel, giving the shooter shot after shot performance even when the barrel gets hot. Cryo Treatment eliminates the memory the steel has when the barrel gets hot. Made from premium ordinance-grade 4150 Steel Rockwell Hardness of 32-35 gives this barrel exceptional long life, surpassing most AR-15 barrels on the market. Each barrel is target crowned & threaded to 1/2x28 TPI to accept all muzzle devices available.
General Barrel Info: The barrel on an AR-15 originally operates under a 'gas impingement' system, by tapping gas off of the barrel and cycling it back through the gas system to assist the bolt carrier in unlocking and extracting the spent cartridge. AR-15 Barrels come in four different specifications for gas systems, Pistol, Carbine, Mid-Length, and Rifle. AR-15 Barrels vary between profiles as well from Government, to Heavy, and Slim. Thanks to the modularity of AR-15, you can choose different calibers starting with the barrel, each with its specific twist rates. Choosing your barrel for your next AR-15 build has never been easier.
About This Barrel: The Barrel is made by XX-Treme Barrel Co. it is 16" long, and is machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium and finished in a Manganese Phosphate appearance. Chambered for .223 Wylde, using a M4 profile design, this barrel will fit your next AR-15 build perfectly.
About the Profile: M4 - The M4 barrel profile is lightweight under the handguards, until just before the gas port. After the gas port, it gets heavier, out to the muzzle.
Barrel Classification: Rifle
Length: This Barrel is designated as rifle barrel with a overall 16" length.
Caliber: .223Wylde - This barrel is chambered to fire both .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO, the most commonly used round designed for the AR-15 platform. .223 Wylde is a commercial specification of 5.56 NATO and will still allow you to chamber and fire 5.56 NATO cartridges.
Material: 4150 CrMoV - Chrome-Moly Vanadium, or simply "CMV", is the official mil-spec gun steel developed by Colt Firearms for the military-issued M16 and M4. It contains the same elements as 4150 steel. It also contains Vanadium. Vanadium significantly increases the strength, hardness, and high-temperature stability of the steel.
Finish: Phosphate - Manganese Phosphate finishes are used on barrels to protect against corrosion and wear. Manganese Phosphate finished is considered for its toughness, and is used in multiple different applications such as aerospace, ordnance, and other firearms-related parts.
Thread Pitch: 1/2x28 - This threading is commonly found on barrels chambered in 5.56, .223, and .224. This will allow the installation of most muzzle devices such as flash hiders, blast cans, and compensators threaded to 1/2x28 threads.
