LaRue Tactical 5.56 Stealth Barrel - 16" Mid-length

Proven accuracy in a soft mid-length gas system.

LaRue's products have a long tradition of exceeding expectations, and the Stealth barrel is a consistent sub-MOA shooter. Mid-length gas system barrels are becoming more popular in 14.5" to 16" barrels, where they have a reputation for easy soft shooting. Adding a Stealth barrel to your AR-15 or to your new build assures greater accuracy. Now, with Charlie's, the price of accuracy has never been better. You would expect to pay much more for a match grade barrel, but LaRue has been making barrels in-house and churning out accurate rifles for a decade. Now, you can have Mark's legendary barrel without the traditional long wait times.

The barrel is the most important part of the AR-15 platform. Some barrels are made for utility and some for extreme accuracy. At 16", this match grade barrel is compact enough for general shooting, and accurate enough for precision target shooting, varmint shooting, hunting or solid recreation with friends.

Many Stealth Upper owners boast of shot groups smaller than ½ MOA. Stealth Uppers are considered by some to be a great improvement that can be made to a stock AR-15 Rifle. The Stealth barrel is chambered in .223 Wylde, 1-in-8 twist rifling in medium-weight contour. You can watch Mark LaRue on Instagram personally testing barrels and achieving very impressive results. Charlie is picky about barrels, and we have never heard a bad word about the Stealth barrels from LaRue Technology.

Yes, you can buy this direct from LaRue. Why not? Well, Charlie's takes pride in finding the best products at the best price, so you can add other components while you are here. Many times buying from a manufacturer, you never know if your barrel is in stock, and many great barrels take weeks to make.

All chambers will have XTRAXN Technology™, providing proprietary chamber release properties, giving longer life to the extractor components, and making the entire operating system run smoother.

The 1:8" twist will work with a wide range of 5.56 and .223 ammo, from 55 grain to 77 grain, giving the shooter the maximum flexibility. The 0.750" gas journal gives you the best variety of gas block choices. This barrel has standard 1/2X28 threads, so you can pick the muzzle device of your choice.
