CMC AR15 barrels are made from 4150 Chrome Moly Vanadium, coated in H&M Blacknitride+™ for increased wear resistance, chambered in 5.56 NATO ammo.

CMC incorporated input received from military, law enforcement and civilian shooters into the engineering of their AR15 barrels to accommodate modern-day shooting requirements. Every barrel is precision, instrument-inspected for absolute straightness and air gauged for maximum uniformity, yielding the highest accuracy possible. Land and groove tolerance from breech to muzzle can vary only .0001″ for the best concentricity.

When using factory loaded, SAAMI approved, Match Grade ammunition you can expect 1 MOA level accuracy (or better) out of CMC barrels at 100 yards. Keep in mind that headspace, component selection, assembly methods, external variables such as the shooter, environmental conditions and ammunition will all have an impact on group sizes. CMC only recommends that you use factory new SAAMI approved ammunition in CMC barrels. CMC stands behind their barrels performing 1 MOA (or better) when Match Grade ammo is used.

CMC AR15 barrels are then coated in H&M Blacknitride+™ or Ferritic Nitrocarburizing, resulting in significantly improved surface properties on ferrous metal parts while maintaining dimensional and shape stability. H&M Blacknitride+™ yields increased wear resistance, improved fatigue strength, better corrosion resistance, improved lubricity, and enhanced cosmetic appeal.
