When building a light weight AR, you want reliable function, you want high quality, long-lasting parts, and you definitely want a barrel that is tough and made to tight tolerances. The ODIN Works 16.1 416R Stainless Steel ULTRAlite Barrel comes standard with a .223 Wylde chamber so both .223 and 5.56 NATO ammo can feed, fire, extract, and eject without a problem. It comes with a Mid-Length gas system, 1/2×28 thread pattern at the muzzle to fit all standard AR muzzle devices, standard M4 feed ramps, a Button-Rifled 1:8 twist rate (meaning as the bullet travels down the barrel, it makes 1 complete rotation every 8 inches), and this barrel has one of the lightest cuts possible on a barrel. All these features in a hand-lapped 16.1 barrel that weighs in at just 1 pound 6.6 ounces! Plus, this ODIN Works barrel comes with a Stainless Steel Adjustable Gas Block that allows you to tune your AR for various types of shooting, and saves you some money on parts!

NOTE: The .223 Wylde is a mix of the 5.56×45 NATO external chamber measurements and lead angle, but also utilizes the tighter .224 free bore diameter of the .223 Remington cartridge for better accuracy potential. As we all know, you could not fire 556 NATO ammo in a .223 Rem chamber due to the pressure differential and slight chamber size differences. The .223 Wylde solves this issue and gives the shooter the best of both worlds.
NOTE: 416R is a Crucible brand steel and it was formulated specifically for barrels. Most types of steel, including normal 416SS are not designed to be used in freezing temperatures. But this steel was designed to operate in arctic temperatures, up to -40F. 416R also has greater accuracy potential than normal 416SS and 4150 steel due to its ability to take highly defined rifling and machining cuts.
