Product Description

The ultralight contour barrel is a lightweight option for those who require a hard-use barrel without any added weight. This is an excellent and well-balanced option if you are looking for a handy and versatile rifle configuration.

Headspace (the bolt-to-barrel fitment), must be checked for optimal performance and reliability. Proper headspace produces consistent chamber pressures and seating depths which results in increased accuracy and reliability, while reducing wear and tear on internal parts and components. Add a headspace bolt to your order, and we will pair a bolt to your barrel for optimal performance.


  • Chrome-lined internally for superior barrel life and corrosion resistance. Criterion’s chrome-lining process is the most refined in the industry and will not degrade accuracy.
  • .223 Wylde chamber that is designed to safely and effectively fire both .223 Remington and 5.56 NATO ammunition.
  • Honed and hand-lapped rifling for bore uniformity and a pristine internal finish – aids in barrel cleaning and paramount for accuracy.
