FNH USA provides Cold Hammer Forged AR-15 barrels to many manufacturers throughout the industry but until now, they haven’t offered barrels directly to the public. FN says these barrels are available at dealers now and their MSRP will be $349-379.00. They are chrome lined and MP tested.
“FN barrels are among the best in the world,” said Mark Cherpes, FN America President and CEO. “Our parent company, FN Herstal, has spent decades perfecting the art of making cold hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrels. This knowledge has transitioned and is the same process we use today in South Carolina. Top-quality materials, state-of-the-art equipment and rigorous quality testing produce the most precise, long-lasting barrels money can buy.”
“With the addition of this new AR-15 commercial barrel line, FN customers now have the option of upgrading their standard AR-15 barrel to an FN,” said Ken Pfau, Senior Vice President of Commercial and Law Enforcement Sales. “This will allow shooters to customize their AR-15 platforms with top-notch components that give them a great return on investment both on and off the range.”
FN America produces more than 20,000 barrels each month for a variety of military and commercial products sold in the U.S., including the FN 15™, M4/M4A1 carbines, M16 rifles, M249 SAWs, MK 48, MK 46, M240, M240C, M240E1, M240B and M240L machine guns, and the FNX™ and FNS™ pistol lines. Each is made from the highest quality steel available and is processed by more than $10 million in state-of-the-art equipment. All barrels undergo rigorous automated and manual quality testing to ensure they are free of micro-stresses and cracks that could affect performance. Any product that scores less than 100 percent is rejected.
