Good stuff! Review by Desert Dog

Purchased this barrel in early Apr 2019 for a new upper build-out for my AR-47. The melonite finish is deep and even and it is just a notch under a satin finish
more like egghsell low luster. BTW the 1:91/2 twist rate is the correct one for Russian ammo like Wolf (123 grain). Some manufactiurers use 1:8 and that's more of 75 gr 223 or 6.5 cal twist rate. Others offer 1:10 and that is acutally a standard tiwst for the .308 round. But like some of the other reviews state, it would be
nice of KAK would use a 7.62x39 feed ramp since it is an AK barrel. The M4 feed ramps however are steep and well ramped all you have to do is make sure
your lower receiver is also channeled out so that your rounds don't nose-dive! Also, this is not a pencil or light weight barrel - it is more like a Socom profile like
my M&P 15T so it's more like a medium weight. So for you all at KAK if you want ot make a good barrel great: feed ramps & twist etc. stamped closer to the muzzle end. (Posted on 4/15/19)

Great value Review by David

I was looking for a melonite, 16”, lightweight barrel and this checked every box. So far out of 200 rounds of different types and quality of ammo (most of it surplus and Tula) I have only had 3 failure to feed, and I’m pretty sure it was the ammo’s fault.

I paired this with a KAK BCG and C Products magazines.

The only change I would like to see is the caliber markings moved to the muzzle end of the barrel. They are completely covered up at the extension end by any hand guard that is used.

Offer this in a 14.5” and I’ll buy one for my SBR. If not I might just buy another and have it cut down. (Posted on 12/25/18)

I'm a Melonite believer! Review by Harold from Free America (Northern Nevada)

I've been building AR's for 30 years and this is my first Melonite barrel. I chronograph everything I shoot so for my first outing I used a bunch of old soviet krapola that I purchased in the mid 1990's. As expected, this steel ammo had a huge extreme velocity spread but my average was 2560 fps for this copper-washed/steel jacketed 123 gr. bullet. That's about 100 fps faster than I was expecting. I also brought along my nearly out-of-the-box Russian SKS made in 1953. When I got home I cleaned both guns thoroughly. There wasn't a speck of copper fouling from the new 7.62x39 barrel. Incredibly, this 16" barrel was a tad over 100 fps faster than my 20.5" SKS. On day two, I again took both rifles to the boonies to test one of my favorite handloads and to workup a new load with my new 7.62x39 melonite barrel. The same velocity disparity occurred such that my 16" 7.62 barrel was faster than my 20.5" SKS. I fired a lot of rounds with my 7.62x39 that day . . . with no copper fouling! It also cleaned up as fast as my chrome-lined SKS. Let's see . . . faster, cleaner, and (supposedly) more corrosion protection. I'm sold on Melonite!!! So much so that I'm buying more. This KAK barrel is a premium barrel regardless of the "Value Line" moniker. (Posted on 4/18/18)

I wanted to 30 caliber AR to hunt wild hogs did not want to go the .308 route because the cost of ammo so 7.62x39 was a option but all the nightmares i see other ppl had with this round out of the AR i was doubtful it would work i had a strippes upper and lower so i took the plunge and started the buikd after i got everything together i started researching barrels i was headed to purchase a Faxon barrel but rememberes that Kak Industries had barrelsl and i had purchased 2 barrels from them in the past so started looking and found them and got one from Kak Industries best decison i ever mase this barrel runs like a champ and i am getting 1.5 moa at 100 yards if you are thinking about getting this barrel dont hesitate i am building a 7.62x39 upper for my sbr and this is where i will be getting my barrel from They make Fantantic products and i will be a customer for life Mike Out...

Excellent Barrel Review by Clinton

I bought the barrel and the BCG from KAK. I cleaned the barrel before installing, just a habit of mine with all new barrels. The fit with my upper receiver was super snug (good thing). I used a standard AR barrel nut and Delta ring. I took it out last night for a quick function test. I buzzed through a 10 round mag of Winchester white box, 7.62x39 brass case ammo. No failures to feed or function, bolt locked back on last round. It was very cold out so I didn't accuracy test yet but I was aiming at patch of remnant snow on a field and all shots dug into one hole at 50 yards. This is going to be a fun little carbine.

Good Economy Lightweight Barrel Review by michael

After waiting just a couple of weeks for this barrel to come back in stock, I placed my order. Shipping was quick. I like the lightweight profile, and was willing to pay just a few bucks more for this lighter profile barrel than other companies cheaper HBAR's. It is light! The whole rifle is lighter than my 16" M4 Frankenrifle; so much so that I keep looking in my rifle to make sure my BCG is in there. Gas port is larger than standard, although the feed ramps look standard to me. However, loading about 5 rounds of 7.62x39 in my old 6.5 Grendel mags (have no dedicated mags yet), I have not had ANY feeding or extraction issues. Rifles in this caliber seem to be hit or miss with reliability. Mine is a hit. Accuracy is not the greatest. With a Tru-Glo dot sight and varying weights of Wolf, Tula, and Bear ammo, at 50yds I was averaging about 2-2.5" groups from a supported sitting position. It works for me though. Didn't build it to be a tack driver. Overall I am completely satisfied with KAK and their barrel. Would definitely look at them again if I plan to build any more rifles. (Posted on 9/21/16)
Looks nice Review by nah

Just got it in today. Looks great, threads look to be a little on the short side. (around 1/2" when most are 3/4").

Here are specs that were not listed on site:
weight: 1.625 lbs. (I was hoping a little lighter profile based on the picture).
gas port size: 0.122 (this seems very large. based on the other 7.62 barrels I have that run perfect (.105 mid gas and .070 pistol gas) I am wanting to run it with an adams arms piston though so hopefully it runs well in this configuration. (Posted on 8/12/16)
