Will this work in both 5.56 and .223 or just 5.56?
James M on May 25, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Both, it's a 5.56 which will take 223. If it was a .223 then it would only be able to accept .223 due to the higher pressures from the 5.56.

Worth the money.PSA AR-15 16" Mid-length Stainless Steel 5.56 NATO 1/7 Barrel with "5.56 NATO 1/7
To my surprise I made a dime size 3 round group at 100 yards with Sierra 53G match bullets. It does not look as nice as my WOA barrel when viewed with a camera bore scope but a dime size group is good enough for most and a great price. Accurate!!

Good barrel
Good barrel not the high-end quality but for a plinker it serves. Know if you want a barrel that has a gas block dimple pre-drilled buy somewhere else. Taxes and shipping are the main negatives when dealing with psa! This barrel was ok decent groups quality of barrel was good some machining marks on ramps and chamber

Happy overall
Barrel is not dimpled for the gas block which was an irritation! Accuracy was excellent

Great value
When I bought this barrel I wasn't sure what to expect. Before I installed it I used some left over Dura Coat and painted it flat black. After instalation and checking the head space I took it to the range and tried 55gr .223 Remington ammunition 55gr and 62 great 5.56 NATO ammunition and 77gr 5.56 NATO ammunition at 25 and 100 yards. I am very satisfied with this barrel. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to build an accurate budget build AR.

Gets the job done!
This barrel is excellent. Finished my upper and this barrel is one criteria that tops the cake. Shot about 100 rounds (62g) at 100 yds. Had 3 flyers but all in a 2.5 inch group. A peep hole. I'm prior millitary and certified US Army Armorer. I use my weapons and don't care for looks. I care about performance. This barrel looks good if you want to know for those weekend warriors.

Sent me the wrong item
I ordered this barrel but received what I believe may be a melonited barrel. Not the end of the world but a little annoying that they would send the wrong barrel. The barrel that was sent has large burs inside the barrel where the gas port was drilled. Im honestly on the fence about even trying to shoot it out. I have tried to call PSA but none of their numbers are working. I emailed them and have still not heard back. Not feeling so great about this order.

Good barrel
I bought 2 when on sale tested one of 2 for grouping yesterday. 4 shot group less that 1 in. 27 yard range. Not a solid rest (had a wasp issues too)
