Direct from Lothar-Walther are these first rate 16in stainless Match Grade LiFe HD® barrels with mid-lengh gas systems. We had them drill & rifle the bore, and contour and thread the barrel prior to the LiFe HD® treatment. However, the barrel extensions were left off of the barrels during the process. This is because the threads need to be cleaned after treatment, and also due to the fact there are different expansion/contraction rates between the barrel and the extension. After treatment, the extensions were torqued and the gas ports drilled. This is the correct way to do any heat treatment. All procedures were done by Lothar-Walther and we receive them as a completely finished product. Read about the LiFe HD® process here.
Lothar-Walther has been a leader in the production of match grade gun barrels for over 80 years. These barrels we offer here are made from their proprietary stainless steel – LW50. This stainless steel was developed in 1994-95 as a safe alternative to 416R and to solve durability problems associated with 416R. No other company can offer this material in their barrels.
These barrels offer the best in every aspect of performance. The stainless steel allows for seamless machining with a nearly perfect bore and chamber, the polygonal rifling offers less bullet deformation and increased velocity, and the Melonite process greatly increases barrel life, durability and corrosion protection. We feel these features together offer the best balance of accuracy and longevity in any AR barrel on the market today, as well as better options compared to any “match grade” barrel without the extremely high cost.
