    Is this availble in 556 and is it threaded

    • Tom Steffner

      Being chambered in .223 Wylde it is safe to shoot 5.56, sorry not threaded

    Gas block info appears to be incorrect. The .936 gas block is way too big. When I measure the barrel it reads 0.875. Haven’t shot it yet still putting it together Barrel does look nice and came well packaged

    Very nice barrel. Just completed a new build with this. After breaking in, I was able to put several moa groups and some sub moa on the first outing. Shoots great and the price can’t be beat. No malfunctions in the first 350 rounds.

    looks great .936 gas block size though not the .875 it says in the description. really sucks when you order parts at the same based off of product description and its wrong. first time anderson let me down though so you get a freebie.

    • Michael Johnson

      really
      We am sorry to hear that.
      We will have to look into that and see what needs to be changed.
      They are supposed to be .936

    I just ordered this too & when you say not threaded, do you mean l can’t put a compensator on there?

    Okay I see that there are many people saying .875 doesn’t fit and .936 gas block doesn’t fit I would like to know before I buy this barrel.

    • Tom Steffner

      The orginal barrels used a .936 they now use the .875 on this model

    What size gas tube is needed for this barrel?

    l asked before if a compensator could be put on the barrel, but after receiving it,
    it’s beautiful! it doesn’t need anything added to it!, l had already mounted a s.s. 20″ twist but this one is so nice, by
    going to a 24″ how big are the advantages/performance of the rifle?

    I had recently asked what size the gas block diameter was going to be after seeing mixed answers. They said .875 because the old ones were .936 I just received my gas block in .875 and it doesn’t fit. Very disappointed in Anderson’s knowledge on their own product. Barrel other than that is very nice.

    One of the answers to a review on here from Steffner says this barrel is 223 Wylde. I called Anderson and they said it’s .556. 223 Wylde is optimum for what I need. Which is it??

    Same as above. Anderson keeps saying.875 gas block. It is.936. Please change your website so others don’t order incompatible parts like several have. I’m sending my.875 back now.

    I just ordered this barrel from my local dealer, with an .875 gas block that your site says it needs. What size do I really need? I’m very uncomfortable with the thought that the manufacturer doesn’t know this, it really makes me rethink my purchase. Why don’t you sell it with the correct block? That would eliminate the problem.

    I bought this barrel, gas tube and gas block from a local dealer. I received it quickly enough, but wasn’t happy after I had time to look at my purchase closely. I paid the price, but didn’t feel I received first quality goods. I had to finish bending the gas tube to the correct configuration, the crown of the muzzle was damaged (it had been dropped), I noticed this after about a week, so I didn’t say anything. Having been a gunsmith, I recut the crown. The gas block wasn’t the right size, and had to be re-ordered, and still hasn’t come. I ordered one online, and installed it. The barrel really is beautiful, but there seems to be quality control issues. No customer should have so many issues with a single order. I hope they get it together, I would like to see them continue. The prices are great, and I’m sure the product will be a good shooter when it is completed. If the crown wasn’t damaged, it would have been five stars.

      Yes that is correct

    Looks great, shipped incredibly fast. Ordered Saturday afternoon and its on the gun Tuesday. Might be a dumb question, but why stamp 556 on the barrel if its a 223 wylde? Hoping to shoot it soon andsee what its capable of. Thanks alot

    The packaging for the barrel was horrible. It consisted of the barrel having a plastic mesh sleeve on it wrapped in a single layer of foam held by one piece of tape in the middle and placed in a 3 inch sqare box of adequate length. No foam blocks to prevent the barrel from moving around. When it was delivered the entire end of the box was torn open from the barrel bouncing around inside the box and the mesh sleeve and foam were halfway off. Leaving the muzzle and half of the barrel exposed and sticking halfway out of the box upon delivery. Luckily the crown was not damaged. In the description it states that the barrel is chambered in 223 wylde but it is clearly stamped 556 on the end. After installing the barrel and doing a break in it did produce 3/4 inch groups easily with 55gr Vmax bullets and I feel that will greatly improve with load development. Had the barrel been chambered correctly according to the description and better packaging it would have received 5 stars based on appearance and accuracy.

    • Michael Johnson

      please let us know if the barrel needs to be returned.
      Sorry about that
