Want more barrel rigidity without added weight?

A Hardened Arms 16" socom profile upper delivers the same ballistics as a 16" M4 without the lost rigidity of grenade launch cut in the barrel. Rigidity in a barrel has HUGE effects on harmonics of your rifle barrel. Ever notice that a bull barrel outperforms a pencil barrel shot to shot? The socom is a modified military barrel that is lightened under the handguard like an M4 barrel with a .750" diameter from the gas block all the way forward. We highly recommend a socom barrel of a M4 unless you plan on carrying a grenade launcher? If you are lucky enough to have a grenade launcher barrel harmonics go out the window as your launch canisters of freedom down range at those that oppose you. Built with the same machine gun rated 4150CMV barrel steel and QPQ coating that out performs military interior chrome coating specifications it will last most shooters a lifetime. Chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 1/7 twist these barrels will eat 55gr-80gr ammunition with more projectile rotational stability towards the heavier pills. Steel case 5.56 is fun to plink with but load up some match grade 75 grain ammo and see this upper really shine.

Whats your rifle built for?

If you looking for that edge in accuracy over the shooters that refuse to progress past a M4 this setup is for you. Full length picatinny rails on all four sides means your vertical foregrip, back up iron sights, mounted flashlight and tactical kitchen sink will be right in any position. The handguard is mounted to a large aluminum barrel nut via 8x button head hex screws for secure mounting and easy future maintenance. A 16 inch barreled upper will allow you the ballistic velocity for accurate hits out to 600yds while being light enough to carry all day long.

Worry free operating.

4150CMV Barrel Steel
Whether starting with our 4150CMV machine gun barrel steel or highly refined 416R stainless steel our barrels are a cut above the rest. Engineered for accuracy and durability they are double nitrogen stress relieved and sodium nitrate coated/melonited (raw stainless steel is polished with melonited extensions). Index pins that lock into the upper receiver are pinned into the barrel through the extension on melonited barrels meaning the extension will never come loose. Machined in house on state of the art CNC equipment we deliver a barrel with every spec carefully controlled for peak performance.
 
Rail Lock Free Float Handguard
Machining our handguards in house provides us the opportunity to integrate features not found on most rails in the industry. Our rail lock feature, is designed to dovetail around your upper reciever insexing to insure a perfectly aligned rail that extends over the end of the upper reciever enough to do away with the unsightly gap found on lesser quality rail to receiver match ups. Combined with 6061-T6 aluminum with class II type III, hard coat anodized finish to match our uppers, fit and finish are top notch. Hardened Arms has many rail styles to choose from that are both stylish and functional. Our handguard offerings include quad rails, reduced weight rails, ergonomic smooth rails, skinny competition rails and our innovative patented Lumashark(R) illuminated rail with high lumen lights built in. Hardened Arms rails come in a variety of lengths and choices to meet your mission specific needs. .
 
Attention to detail.
It's the attention to detail that sets Hardened Arms apart. Items such as our machined in house 'Jam Nut' ensure ease of changing muzzle devices and indexing flash hiders while being fully re-useable. Crush washers are a thing of the past as they are single use and can induce stress and cause problems if used improperly. Bull barrels use shims to time your muzzle device without adding to the diameter of the already rigid barrel.

Alignment dimples are also machined into your barrel at the same time the gas port is drilled to provide 100% accurate positioning of your gas block and to keep it securely in place in spite of recoil. We machine our gas blocks and adjustable gas blocks right here from 4150 US barrel steel to give you the strongest and most durable product possible..
Hardened Arms uppers are high end, accurate, head spaced, inspected and test fired prior to shipping. They are built using stringent specs, top quality parts and procedures to ensure maximum reliability and performance.

Dealer programs are available on our website. Two year warranty against manufacturer defects. Finishes will wear with use, no warranties apply to finish wear. Fits any mil-spec AR15 lower receiver.
