Ratings & Reviews
Wow! Best AR pistol barrel yet.
By L. Taylor
I had been searching for a different barrel for a few "premium" builds. I have several others from many of the popular brands in both budget and premium ranges. I have purchased some Zev accessories (The "Wedge-lock" handguard is FANTASTIC!) and decided to give the new Zev barrels a look. Admittedly, I was a little apprehensive as it is the most expensive pistol length barrel I have bought yet. When the barrel arrived, I was VERY pleased! Worth every penny. I pulled out all of my other "premium" barrels in this length and caliber and there is no comparison. This thing makes my other "expensive" barrels look like "budget" barrels. The fit and finish is perfect. Clearly, this is a labor of love for the people at Zev and it shows. I'm glad I decided to give the Zev barrel a try. I only wish I didn't have to cover it up with a handguard, barrel nut and gas block. (Although the Wedge-Lock 7 1/4" handguard and Zev Muzzle Device are pretty nice looking as well!)
