All the great attributes and accuracy of our original STRETCH 16 Precision Barrels, but with fluting and the added benefit of Melonite surface conversion for longevity! STRETCH 16 Precision AR15 Barrels are considered to be among the best precision AR15 barrels on the market. This is a Hand Lapped, precision AR15 barrel and it happens to be the barrel of choice for many competitive shooters and law enforcement agencies due to its guaranteed accuracy and soft shooting appeal. The STRETCH 16 is a custom made barrel from start to finish. The foundation of every barrel begins with a barrel blank which is the reason why STRETCH Precision only uses McGowen Premium Barrel Blanks. These blanks are shaped into 16" medium profiled tack drivers chambered in .223 Wylde with a button rifled 1/8 Twist Rate. The .223 Wylde is regarded as the most accurate chamber for both 5.56 NATO and .223 Remington. The benefit of the .223 Wylde Chamber is that it provides the strength of a 5.56 NATO chamber while maintaining the accuracy of a .223 Remington chamber. The large majority of precision barrels are now .223 Wylde with 1/8 Twist Rate. One full bullet rotation in every 8" of barrel length means accuracy can be maintained with multiple bullet grains/weights. What really sets the STRETCH 16 Precision AR15 Barrel apart is its "stretched" or intermediate length gas system. Typically, AR type rifles come in Carbine Length, Mid Length and Rifle Length gas systems. The STRETCH 16's Intermediate Length gas system is approximately 2" longer than the Mid Length gas system and approximately 1.5" shorter than Rifle Length gas systems. The longer the gas system, the softer shooting the rifle is. The afore mentioned features make the STRETCH 16 Precision AR15 Barrel one of the softest shooting and most versatile AR15 barrels on the market. Complete Barrel Assembly includes a black oxided 17-4 PH Stainless Steel clamp on style .750" Low Profile Gas Block in addition to an intermediate length Gas Tube.
