The .223 Wylde hybrid chamber was designed by Bill Wylde of Greenup, IL to exploit the accuracy advantages of the .223 Remington commercial chambering without pressure problems or compromising the functional reliability when using the high velocity 5.56x45mm NATO militaryammunition. It is used by many rifle manufacturers who sell "National Match" configuration AR-15rifles, barrels, and upper receivers. The .223 Wylde achieves better accuracy by having a chamber throat that is tighter than 5.56x45mm but will still function reliably with military 5.56 ammunition as the case dimensions are the same. In short, it will give you the accuracy of a real SAAMI when using the good ammo, but also allow you to use cheap surplus ball ammo safely. Please Google .223 Wylde if you are unfamiliar with this chamber. It is truly the best of both .223 and 5.56 chambers.

16" .223 WYLDE 1x8 M4 CONTOUR STAINLESS BARREL January 8, 2018
: Patrick W  
I bought this for both worlds. Mars and the moon. It's a gravity thing. Barrel arrived well boxed, well wrapped. Removed packing and found some minor scratches in the barrel. I don't dare what the outside looks like, just the inside and it all looked nice and shiny with well cut rifling. Very nice fit into my receiver, no looseness felt. I like the Wylde chamber especially as 5.56 is cheaper than .223. I purchased this for my first build So far I am happy. I will update after the range because all that really matters is how well it groups with the various ammo types out there.

Well made 223 Wylde SS June 14, 2016
: Lennon C  
I am very pleased on the prompt delivery of this barrel. I was very weary about ordering AR-15 or anything online. However, MASDEFENCE delivered and I thank you for that. The barrel is well made, andof good quality. There are no burrs, gas port misalignment, nor fitting issues. I am happy with delivery and materiel. Though, I am still concern on the way ratings work in this website. Everything is 5 stars and the webmaster wouldn't post less than 5 stars?

16" SS Wylde Barrel .223 June 16, 2015
: Scott H  
First of all shipping was unbelievable fast. The barrel looks even better in person. Fit and finish was great. Bought this to spruce up an old DPMS with a pencil barrel. I've got 3 builds to go and it doesn't take a brain surgeon to guess where I'll be buying my parts. Last but not least I contacted Mas Defense twice and they were very prompt and knowledgeable.
