StrikeFighter Barrel 10.3" / 14.5" / 16"
The SI StrikeFighter is a premium, 100% U.S made, cold hammer forged barrel designed with serious use and performance in mind. Our proprietary “StrikeFighter” profile is engineered to reduce weight, while at the same time increase stiffness and mitigate barrel whip. The gradual transitions increase strength and reduce heat related differential expansion, allowing for greater shot to shot consistency like a heavier contour barrel, while still weighing less than an equivalent length government profile. Perfect balance facilitates ultra fast close in transitions, but has the weight and stiffness for fine accuracy shot after shot.
The .223 Wylde chamber offers the best of both worlds in ammunition compatibility. The chambering allows for fine accuracy with match grade .223 Rem ammunition, as well as safely and reliably handle higher pressure 5.56x45mm.
Traditional stainless steel barrels are highly accurate, but tend to wear out much faster than chromoly steels. We at Strike Industries don’t agree that there needs to be a compromise at all. By cold hammer forging 416 RS ordnance steel, ultra tough QPQ nitriding, and cryogenically treating the finished barrels, the life expectancy of SI barrels far exceed the typical stainless barrels currently commercially available.
