I have already written about what a great value SIONICS Weapon Systems barrels are. Now they are introducing a new 11.5″ barrel and I have no doubt it will be excellent.
The new 11.5″ barrels will be made from 4150 CMV Steel with a proper 5.56 chamber. The barrel extension has M4 feed ramps. Unlike their current 16″ barrel which has a 1 in 8″ twist rate, this new 11.5″ barrel will have a 1 in 7″ twist. It goes through all the same quality checks that you have come to expect from SIONICS including individual X-ray and MP testing. These barrels weigh in at 1 lb, 6 oz.
They will be offered with your choice of chrome lining or Melonite processing and your choice of gas block options including a fixed FSB, low profile gas block, and no gas block. The stripped barrels will start at $189.95.
They are already in hand at SIONICS and will be available on their site next week.
Stay tuned for details on their upcoming lightweight profile (pencil) barrel in the coming days!
