Black Hole Weaponry AR-15 Carbine 16" Bull Profile Stainless Steel 1:8 Polygonal Rifled Barrel 5.56 Chamber
Black Hole Weaponry Barrels employ the use of 416R, match grade stainless steel. BHW Barrels specialize in Polygonal rifling; The shape of the lands and grooves are based on a circle, so there are no sharp corners or edges for the bullet to conform into. This means there is a tight seal and thus less bullet deformation. This rifling form is unique in its ability to allow the bullet to be centered and fully supported by the barrel’s bore.This arc shaped rifling has long been held in very high regard for its accuracy, increased velocity, reduced gas cutting and ease of cleaning.

Love the look of this barrel just what I was looking for.
This is definitely a heavy barrel and can be a pain to hold standing but put it on a rest or a bipod and prepare to make a single ragged hole. I threw on a YHM compensator and the recoil is not much more than a .22lr, no kidding its that light.
I used a DPMS steel low profile gas block and a YHM specter length Diamond freefloat handguard and it looks great together. I have had a lot of comments and people wanting something just like it and my step daughter is begging me to build her one as well though would probably do HBAR rather than bull for her as she is 5'1" and 110 pounds and 25 years old.
