All versions of this stainless steel AR-type barrel are chambered with a PTG semi-auto match reamer. They are rifled with an 11″ twist 3-groove configuration in .308 Winchester and an 8″ twist 3-groove in .260 Remington. These barrels are also hand-lapped to our internal finish standards. The section forward of the gas block section is engraved: “Lilja AR .260 Rem. 8T”. The barrel extensions are a DPMS type and these barrels will headspace properly with DPMS type bolts. The gas block and gas port hole are positioned for standard rifle length gas tubes.
