Anderson 16" 5.56×45 M4 Barrel (RF85 Finish)
Made in 'Merica by our good friends at Anderson machine.
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.

These barrels should be broken in. Doing so will help your barrel perform consistently over its lifespan. To break it in, simply
- Shoot 25-40 rounds
- Clean the bore
- Inspect the gas block to ensure it is still attached securely. Inspect the Bolt for unusual signs of wear.
- Repeat the above steps four more times.
