  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I have had exceptional results with the standard 16″HBAR, & 20″ HBAR so I ordered a couple of these. Again, I am very pleased to say the least. I assembled 2 rifles with these bbls, and found great accuracy, I just ordered 6 more of these! Like always, I have been pleased with the price, and the service from Anderson Mfg! I’ll be trying the diamond fluted bbls next!

    I’ve owned several m4 5.56 rifles over the years. I currently own ten of them. I have a lot of experience shooting and competing. I’ve also deployed overseas in Iraq as a marine and currently serve as a firearms instructor and instruct multiple police departments. I shoot roughly ten thousand rifle rounds a year and ten thousand handgun rounds a year. Not crazy high but a lot more than most. My point. The industry has become so main streamed with a lot of junk products that don’t work. There are a lot of you tube celebrities trying to convince people they need to buy a 5,0000$ rifle to get a good buy. I just ordered an Anderson rifle (the 16 inch fluted barrel.) it came fast and I took it out to the range today. The barrel cost me $88 at the time. I currently own a couple of Daniel defense rifles which come with their barrels. Their barrels are priced at $300 easy out of the gate. This barrel from Anderson manufacturing performed flawlessly. I shot several hundred rounds through it today and held noting less 1/4 inch groups at 50 yards the entire time with an optic. I had 1/2 inch groups at 100 yards when we moved out. You won’t go wrong buying a barrel from them. I plan on buying the rf85 treated rifle as well. Thanks Anderson for making an amazing product I didn’t have to auction a child off to purchase. Oh yeah. Buy a mucilek comp to go with it. Again you won’t be sorry. Well under 200 bucks for Everything I just mentioned and will hold better groups than Daniel defense, large tactical, etc. don’t buy all the hype bullshit out there right now from the Chris costa’s. Thanks again Anderson.

    I plan to attempt a dissipator build. Is this barrel .750 from the gas port/hole to the muzzle? I’m gonna need to put a dummy gas block at the rifle length location.

      8k rounds you should see some issue with the rifling.

  14. Rated 5 out of 5


    Got to shoot this for the first time today. I only had 25 meters to play with but 9/10 rounds were touching in about 1/4 a 1/2 inch, the 1 round out was me not the barrel. Great barrel at a great cost.

    Just received. I had a question about the product. If I mate this barrel to the rf85 complete upper, will I still need to check head spacing?

    • Tom Steffner

      yes sir

    Are these hammer forged? Cut rifling? What is the stress relieving process?
