Product Description

Purebred – 16″ .223 Wylde Barrel: This Rosco 16″ .223 Wylde Barrel is the perfect addition to your next DMR (or SPR) build featuring great balance, and properly sized gas ports in order to optimize performance while reduce premature wear and tear (from over gassing). This barrel is perfectly suited for SPR rifles which will have a suppressor most of the time. The overall size of the platform will be comfortable for the shooter to haul around without sacrificing accuracy.

Rosco Manufacturing’s “Purebred” series is a testament to precision and quality manufacturing. We took a step back to see how we could create a barrel line that would be a culmination of all the lessons learned through years of making barrels for several OEM’s. The result is a barrel that will produce results out of the box for any shooter that is looking to take their skills above and beyond. All of our Purebred barrels are made from scratch in our Rhode Island facility and start life as a blank piece of 416R stainless steel.

Aside from making our own barrel blanks, and barrel extensions, we also hold ourselves to the most stringent quality standards. This is the only way that we can make sure that we are producing a product that will perform time after time under the demanding of situations. We are setting out to re-define the rules and we plan on letting our work do the talking…

Solid barrel

Put this barrel in a gun I built, I am very satisfied with the accuracy. Milspec retail ships super quick.
