Purchased my barrel in March 2015, arrived to my house 5 days later, superfast shipping. Torqued it on to my upper and never looked back, so far i’ve put over 500 rounds and it still cleans up nice and shiny, no issues with threads up front or gas key hole. Nice barrel for the price. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
I purchased this expecting horrible grouping, like reviews I’ve read about 7.5″ barrels. I was wrong. Just with a cheap $35 sightmark red dot sight, I was getting less than 2″ grouping at 50 yards. Is it going to get a tight group at 200 yards? Probably not. But this SBR isn’t the tool for that job, it’s 100 yard or less gun and it’s a blast to shoot. The finish on the barrel is good quality, and I have not had any head spacing issues. Would I buy this barrel again on another SBR or pistol build? In a moment’s notice. Shipping was timely and no issues with billing. One suggestion would be that you use a muzzle device similar to a Noveske KX3 or KX5 flaming pig. I assure you, you can’t imagine how close the blast is to you till you shoulder and fire it for the first time. The Flaming Pigs throw all the blast forward, making this a much more pleasant gun to shoot. Hope y’all have some good shooting.
I purchased this barrel for an AR pistol build. Love it! Fit and finish is outstanding for the price. Would purchase again.
this is the second CBC barrel i have used in a build and have no complaints…looks nice, performs, threads and gas port alignment are solid … good stuff. wont be the last barrel i buy from CBC
I was very happy and impressed when I first put some rounds through this little ass stubby shorty pistol barrel….. There is no compromising of accuracy when building a pistol, they are still very much on point, very little recoil, and a hell of a lot of noise! Just how I like it. This is the third barrel I have purchased from CBC and I intend on purchasing many more because you can not beat the price and quality that they deliver. Thank you CBC…
I purchased a total of 5 of these barrels. ?The quality is superb and par with the barrels twice the price. Perfect for a pistol or SBR project.

Living in SC I’m proud to support a local company. Heard the rumors about 7.5″ barrels, but had to give it a shot for myself. Less than .75″ groups at 25 yards with a red dot! Can not believe how accurate this barrel is! Will be doing more business with CBC!
