Anderson 16" 5.56×45 M4 Barrel Assembly w/FSB, RF85-Treated
For a traditional (non-free-float) build, this assembly will save you some time and hassle of installing the front sight. Front sight post is attached, pinned, and secured to the barrel, just like if you bought a complete rifle. No drilling necessary. Just add your own handguard, weld spring, delta ring, and snap ring.
Front sight is F-marked for flat top upper reciever; will also work with a A2-style (carry handle) receiver rear sights.
Anderson's RF85 finish is a proprietary technology that deposits calcium atoms into the metal surface, which reduces the friction by 85% (hence the name RF85). This makes cleanup a lot easier and roughly doubles the lifespan of the barrel.
Made in 'Merica by our good friends at Anderson machine.
