    does this barrel properly mate with the AR15-A3-UPPER-RF85 part without any special modification?

    • Michael Johnson

      yes this will work with that upper receiver.

    Just walked a fresh build out to 400 yards in six shots with this barrel. Naked eye bore sighted at 100 yards, tightened the group in three shots, then hit 10 inch steel plates at 200, 300 and 400 in three consecutive shots. I’m always impressed with Anderson products, they always perform as expected. Anderson customer for life.

    What is the life span of this barrel with the RF85 treatment?

    • Michael Johnson

      you should be able to get 14-15k rounds through a barrel that is treated before you see some wear

    Is this RF85 barrel MPI and HP tested? That’s the deal breaker

    • Tom Steffner

      MPI no, HP yes

    Why don’t you make a heavy Wylde barrel with RF85? I thought that the heavy barrel would be better than the lightweight??

    • Michael Johnson

      we are working on making all the barrels we have RF85

    Excellent barrel. I used this on a lightweight AR build with a anderson upper and lower. Great quality. No problems putting my build together and the final product shoots smooth as could be and is very accurate. Highly recommend.

    Is there any way you could drill holes for a front sight base? Does the Gov’t style barrel come with these?

    • Michael Johnson

      at this time we are not drilling this barrel for the front sight base.
