discontinued and currently not available

Colt 10.3" SOCOM profile barrel, stripped - cut down version

The stripped thick profile barrel from Colt is a great way to build a Mk18 Mod1 clone, with the barrel under the rails.

This barrel is the 10.3" thick SOCOM profile (without M203 cuts).  This is a cut-down of the 11.5" FBI heavy profile barrel.

Factory Colt marked with CAGE code and date stamped.  Standard Colt chrome-lined, to last almost forever, and that includes throwing it in the mud.  Comes ready for a flash hider of your choosing, with standard 1/2-28 threading.  This is a stripped barrel, virgin, no FSB, and not drilled. There is a dimple, so ready for a solid installation of a low-profile gas block.

This barrel is an great upgrade for a Mk18 build, or for a custom short barreled rifle. yes, it will fit under M4 handguards or a RAS rail.  This is an ideal barrel for a Mk18 Mod1 build, to under your 9.5" rail, like the Daniel Defense RIS-II.

Our friends at Potomac Armory have cut the standard FBI 11.5" barrel down to 10.3," and inspected, and where needed, re-drilled the gas port to be the correct 0.070" port for the ultra-short gas system.  They have also pre-dimpled at 180 degrees from the gas port, for proper alignment of a low-profile gas block.

We take special care in bringing you the best in short barrels, and use the best artisans, both in-house, and in our extended supply chain, when something has to be engineered to a Colt production barrel.  Our collectors and cloners will want the 10.3" barrel for historical accuracy.  The Daniel Defense is a great option, as it is now being used by US Special Forces in limited numbers, and is readily available and affordable.  For more authenticity, choose a Colt 10.3" barrel. 

Shooters and law enforcement typically choose the 11.5" barrel, as it has better overall performance, especially in the heavy (SOCOM) profile. Our LE customers tell us that they will only use Colt barrels in 10.3" to 14.5" lengths.  Colt truly does dominate that market, while other barrel companies own the long-range and sniper market.
