However, this upper receiver assembly comes in a rifle configuration with a 16-inch barrel.
The barrel is made from Chrome Moly Vanadium steel, which offers better strength, corrosion resistance, and heat dissipation properties than normal stainless steel. The barrel is rifled with a 1:10 twist rifling profile and is threaded as well. It comes with an A2-style flash hider from the factory.
