    This is a beautiful barrel, but like the description states it is heavy. Thanks Anderson for fine products and fast turn around. I cant wait to get it installed and put some rounds through it .

    Just tested my completed rifle with this barrel. Purchased stainless muzzle brake with spiral slots and stainless crush washer. It sure is a beautiful rifle, and everyone who sees it, love the look.

    I had an out of spec barrel shipped to me. I emailed Anderson and the response was prompt and made up for the issues with the barrel. The customer service for Anderson is outstanding.

  21. Rated 5 out of 5


    Just completed a build with this barrel. It looks amazing with the spiral slot stainless steel barrel device on the front. I wish anderson had a low profile stainless steel gas block. Ran some rounds through it for a test and it worked flawlessly.

    What is the expected life span of these barrels?

    • Michael Johnson

      most barrel rifling is shot out around 8000 rounds.

  27. Rated 5 out of 5


    Just tested this barrel on my new build and……..Holy Cow!!
    I’m liking this barrel. From now on; nothing in my builds but Wylde Chambered barrels.
    Fit and finish on this barrel is superb! Accuracy with 5.56 NATO (M855) and .223 REM (55 gr) is outstanding…sub MOA with either round.
    Love It!
    Let’s build another!

    Do o need to head space this barrel? Is it dimpled?

    • Michael Johnson

      No it is not dimpled.
      This is just the barrel so may need to be head spaced to the BCG you use.
      should be okay but we do not guarantee that.

    Question, is the RF85 treatment only for the standard barrels or can they be applied to the stainless steel barrel as well?

    • Tom Steffner


  36. Rated 5 out of 5


    This is my first time to build an AR15.
    What does it means Non-RF85 and RF85 treated or what is the difference and which one is better? Thanks

    • Tom Steffner

      The RF85 is the way to go

    Had my gun shop order me this barrel after viewing on the website, nice quality piece, haven’t stretched it out beyond 100yrds yet but a tack driver so far. was a little skeptical of the 223 Wilde chamber at first thinking tighter tolerances might be a bad thing in nasty weather conditions. One oiling day of assembly over 400 rounds down range, no problems what so ever. I highly recommend.

    I have a PSA upper rifle kit 16” M4 barrel carbine length, but would like to swap out the barrel for this one. My question is it going to be plug and play or would I need to purchase other parts for it to work?

    • Tom Steffner

      Not sure, the barrel can be changed out no problem, but do not know what the PSA upper looks like.

    I’ve had this barrel for about two years on my limited class race gun. It was built to run inside 200 yards which it has done well. I only have about 3500 rounds through it but most have been at 3-gun competition speeds. I get this barrel HOT! For the money I’ve been more than satisfied. Just went to a match that I wasn’t familiar with and found out they had several targets out at 300 to 450 yards (which I’ve never tried with this gun and would normally take a different one) and i got nervous. No problem. After a few shots to get my dope it was hitting 8 inch plates at 450 yards with a hot rifle without any issues. Great product. Stands up against much more expensive barrels and performs very well.
