If you are a 3-Gun enthusiast and looking to take your performance to the next level, have a look at the Ballistic Advantage 17.7" 5.56 Hanson Mid Barrel. This 17.7" 5.56 barrel is made specifically for competition but is equally at home on a varmint rifle. The 17.7-inch length, unusual in the AR world, is fast proving a favorite on competition grounds around the world. The Hanson Performance Series 17.7" barrel is further built to harness the full performance of the 5.56 NATO round and limit the felt recoil so you can get on target and stay there.
Machined from 4150 chrome-moly-vanadium, the Ballistic Advantage 17.7" Hanson barrel has a quench-polish-quench (QPQ) case hardening and a natural black finish. The 1.03" gas block seat accepts .750" low-profile gas blocks, so your choice of optics will fit no matter what. You can run a can because the Performance Series 5.56 Hanson mid-length barrel is threaded 1/2 x 28. Like all of the BA Performance Series barrels, this barrel features a FailZero nickel-boron-coated extended M4 feed-ramp extension.

"BA Hanson Series Barrels provide a lightweight feel without lightweight limitations. Every barrel in the BA Hanson Series was designed specifically to its length and caliber to yield the best results with every aspect taken into consideration. It is truly ideal for how the AR was meant to perform. With the BA Hanson Profile, we found a more efficient way to harness a bullets energy while limiting felt recoil considerably. The balanced feel and overall performance of a Hanson barrel will create a more organic relationship between you and your rifle. It will simply be an extension of you!" - Clint Hanson
