    Frank said they have refined their chrome lining process to the point that there is no difference in accuracy between their previous nitrided barrels and their current improved chrome lined units so nitriding has gone the way of the dodo at Daniel Defense.

    Thanks, Coal Dragger
    Did they happen to say if they would make other 5.56 barrels in S2W profile that are not currently listed on their website? Doesn’t make much sense to not do so, particularly if they are properly gased, they will sell many.

    Ive wondered about this too.

    They listed a 16 S2W for awhile in 5.56 but dont anymore.

    Id love to see a 14.5, and 16 S2W like profile offered. Maybe a smidge lighter for the 14.5 and 16, more akin to what a mid length gas M4A1 SOCOM profile might look like. Maybe offer two different gas ports, so a customer can decide if they want it ported for a steady diet of 5.56 or .223.

    Same, I have a 16" S2W and it shoots great. A side data point is that I only get half the POI shift when mounting a can on it. (Surefire SOCOM.) Half a mil shift vs 1 mil shift, which is what all my other 5.56 rifles get with a can mounted.

    Well the beefier your barrel the more rigid it will be, no mystery to this. Pretty cool that you can quantify the actual difference though.

    I had one and sold it, I've regretted it ever since. Would love to pick another one up.

    Maybe if there’s enough demand Monty would do another run of them, I’d love to have one in 14.5”.
