Workmanship and presentation is excellent. I hated to mount it because I would be dirtying it up once I take it to the range. I’m a recreational shooter and not a great shot by any means. With that said, I shot 2 inch full mag groups at 100 yards from bench with bulk ammo; that’s 30 rounds. It did that with Federal .223, 55 gr from Wal-Mart and PMC X-TAC NATO 55 and 62 grain bullets. So, guaranteed sub MOA with match ammo is believable. It shoots better than I can. I’m hoping to do better once I replace the crap mil-spec trigger with a Geissle, which is on the way.
Last note: I found Tom’s Tactical by accident looking for MFT minimalist stocks. They were the only site that had them in stock and at the best price. Fast shipping too. I’ve directed my shooting friends to look here first if they are building a new gun. Five STARS for Tom’s.


I have no doubt I bought one of the best barrels in the market, I received the barrel in its original package, I inspected it throughly and could not find any flaw, I was able to sight in at 50 yards using a scope and put ten rounds whithin half an inch. I installed it in a aeroprecision upper receiver with a very thig fit, I could not be more satisfied.


I like it- only a couple hundred though it so still breaking it in really, but there is definitely some potential. 3rd handload recipe of 69 gr smk produced a beautiful 5 shot, almost 1 hole group. Mine seems to like LC 55gr m193 also, but spit 62 gr out like birdshot. Go figure. For the price you can't beat this.


I will update once the weather warms up and have a chance to break it in. I can saw this barrel is flawless looking inside and out. It is a sturdy profile without all the extra weight. The gas block comes with pins and set screws. The stainless has a great looking bead blast finish. Again will update once I have some time on it.


This barrell is both gorgeous and amazing. It works wonderfully and allowed for scope sighting in almost immediately. Love is the only word to describe how my dad and I feel
