Hanson Profile Barrels are the Best Of Both Worlds

Ballistic Advantage’s Hanson Profile Barrels are designed to perform with the best, yet they’re easy handling so your weapon feels like part of you, not a detached tool you struggle to manage. Each caliber of Hanson barrel is redesigned so that it handles and performs better than the competition. These barrels are lighter weight than many other barrels but don’t suffer from problems with inaccuracy like other lightweight barrels frequently do. They’re designed to maintain accuracy, provide a quality handling experience and help manage felt recoil. That’s a complete package, not just a fashionable profile.

Ballistic Advantage Performance Series Barrels: Materials and Features

Ballistic Advantage Performance series barrels are manufactured from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium and feature a QPQ surface for a long corrosion-resistant service life. QPQ finishes don’t peel, crack or prematurely wear. The velvety black finish blends well with Mil-Spec blacks and won’t attract unwanted attention as raw stainless finishes sometimes can. Performance series barrels feature extended feed ramps treated with the FailZero Nickel Boron finish for smooth, reliable feeds cycle after cycle. The pre-threaded muzzle of Performance Series barrels features a recessed target crown, assuring accuracy with every shot. When you choose a Ballistic Advantage Performance Series Barrel from Wing Tactical you choose to give yourself an edge on the competition.
