Gauntlet Arms "Skiff" AR-15 16" .458 SOCOM 1-24T, .936 Gas, Engraved HBAR Barrel
General Barrel Info: The barrel on an AR-15 originally operates under a 'gas impingement' system, by tapping gas off of the barrel and cycling it back through the gas system to assist the bolt carrier in unlocking and extracting the spent cartridge. AR-15 Barrels come in four different specifications for gas systems, Pistol, Carbine, Mid-Length, and Rifle. AR-15 Barrels vary between profiles as well from Government, to Heavy, and Slim. Thanks to the modularity of AR-15, you can choose different calibers starting with the barrel, each with its specific twist rates. Choosing your barrel for your next AR-15 build has never been easier.
About This Barrel: The "Skiff" Barrel is made by Gauntlet Arms it is 16" long, and is machined from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium and finished in a Nitride appearance. Chambered for .458 SOCOM, using a SOCOM profile design, this barrel will fit your next AR-15 build perfectly.
About the Profile: SOCOM - SOCOM Profile barrels are made to withstand more use than their M4 counterparts, being slightly heavier near the end, allowing for increased rigidity and reliability under rapid or sustained fire situations.
Barrel Classification: Rifle
Length: This Barrel is designated as a rifle barrel with an overall 16" length.
Caliber: .458SOCOM - This barrel is chambered in .458 SOCOM, a big-bore cartridge originally developed from .50 Action Express. .458 SOCOM was designed to be used on the AR-15 Platform to deliver more ballistic energy on impact at supersonic speeds. .458 SOCOM can be used with a standard buffer, buffer spring, & STANAG magazines.
Material: 4150 CrMoV - Chrome-Moly Vanadium, or simply "CMV", is the official mil-spec gun steel developed by Colt Firearms for the military-issued M16 and M4. It contains the same elements as 4150 steel. It also contains Vanadium. Vanadium significantly increases the strength, hardness, and high-temperature stability of the steel.
Finish: Nitride - Nitriding is a process during manufacturing that diffuses nitrogen into the steel to make a case-hardened surface for improved resistance and strength. A Nitrided barrel typically has a gloss black texture.
Thread Pitch: 5/8x32 - Common on .450 Bushmaster and .458SOCOM barrels these threads will allow the addition of blast cans, flash hiders, compensators, and other muzzle devices.
