To top it off we spare no expense on the nitride process unlike our competitors to ensure our barrels undergo the best nitride process. We spend up to 5x extra to send our barrels out to the top black nitriding firm in the USA that handles nitriding for the Aerospace, Defense, and Airline Industry because it truly makes a difference we have found.

As Accurate As A VEPR

I actually have a precursor (different steel) to this 4150 Nitrided barrel, so I expect the new ones will be even better.
I used my barrel on a home built Polish AKM. The barrel was cut to 14.6", crowned, and a 1-1/2" muzzle brake was pinned on and welded.
On the second trip to the range, the barrel shot 3 MOA at 100 yards using a red dot. I suspect that this could be tightened to 2 MOA with some magnification and a little more break-in of the barrel. That's about what my VEPR shoots when I'm feeling good and the stars are aligned correctly.
Another thing worthy of note - these nitrided barrels are incredibly easy to clean - takes about 1/2 the time it does with a chrome lined barrel.
Highly recommended - you'll be pleased with the performance of this barrel.

I used this barrel to complete my hungarian underfolder and have been nothing but pleasantly surprised by this barrel. It is by far the most accurate ak I have shot! The finish is nearly impossible to scratch and still looks new after serveral accidental hammer blows. This barrel is accurate even out at 500 yards with tulammo. Don't hesitate to buy this awesome deal.

I would recommend this product over purchasing an original barrel for a build. The savings in cost alone is worth it. when testing, this barrel beat out a like new Romanian chrome lined military barrel obtaining much tighter groups at 100 yards.
I usually have gotten steel barrels because of the accuracy bump. This barrel was only marginally worse than my best shooting ak with groups just over 3/4 of an inch.
Barrel was built using one of the excellent condition Hungarian underfolder kits purchased from this site. component sizing was just fine for this build.
Thank you guys for stocking quality products.

The quality of this barrel is excellent. Barrel dimensions are slightly oversized in component areas so you can reduce size of barrel in these areas to have a precise, exact interference fit between the barrel and a component. This allows this barrel to fit a wide variety of components for the AKM platform of AK-47s. With it also having the extractor cut made, the gas port predrilled, handguard slots cut and a M14-1LH thread, this saves a lot of assembly time. The improved rifling is also a big plus, increasing the accuracy of the 7.62x39 bullet.
