Accuracy is not compromised by the reduced weight.
In most lightweight AR builds, the barrel is usually thinned down to a “pencil” diameter in order to reduce weight.
The barrel we are using is a custom 16″ TiN coated 223 Wylde chambering – sub MOA, match grade .416 twice stress relieved steel, 5R rifling – button pulled with 1-8 twist.
We are able to achieve a relatively light weight design by utilizing top quality, 7075 components and and specifically light weight designed rails and accessories.
Our build is not the lightest out there, but we aimed to strike a balance between weight and durability.
Only the Highest Quality
We did not cheap out on ANY component of this upper receiver. All the parts are of the highest quality.
This was designed so that most people would not want to replace any part of this upper with something else (of course you can do whatever you want or buy the “Naked” version).
