This week Strike Industries added to their extensive rifle lineup with the addition of the Fluted Strike Fighter barrel. The Strike Fighter barrel is a premium cold forged hammer barrel built with reliability and performance in mind by Strike. 

Strike uses a proprietary “Strike Fighter” profile that was engineered to reduce weight, while simultaneously increasing stiffness and reducing muzzle flip. Strike explains what benefits of the Strike Fighter barrel: “The gradual transitions increase strength and reduce heat related differential expansion, allowing for greater shot to shot consistency like a heavier contour barrel, while still weighing less than an equivalent length government profile. Perfect balance facilitates ultra fast close in transitions, but has the weight and stiffness for fine accuracy shot after shot.” 

The new Strike Fighter barrel is made from 416 RS ordnance steel, QPQ nitride finish, a mid length gas system, 1/8 rifle twist, and chambered in .223 Wylde. Below is the complete spec and feature list.
