Have you ever wanted to build an AR pistol in 556/223? Most AR shooters do, most shooters of any firearm do, and even I want to build one. Since the introduction of AR-15 Pistol Receiver Extensions and Arm Braces, Pistol AR builds have exploded in popularity. ODIN Works is one of the best companies building barrels for this specific type of firearm. The ODIN Works .223 Wylde Medium Profile 7.5″ 416R Stainless Steel Barrel takes advantage of the popularity of AR Pistol platforms. It comes in the well-known .223 Wylde chamber to run .223 Rem or 5.56 NATO training ammo, hollow points, and custom loads. The 1:8″ twist rate is cut with button type rifling (meaning the 5.56×45 bullet makes one full rotation every 8″ inches), it has the normal 1/2×28 thread pattern to fit most standard AR muzzle devices, and the Medium Profile of the barrel keeps it rigid and helps with accuracy. Start your next AR Pistol build today with an ODIN Works 7.5″ 223 Wylde Pistol Length Medium Profile Stainless Steel with a FREE Adjustable Gas Block.

*NOTE: The .223 Wylde is a mix of the 5.56×45 NATO external chamber measurements and lead angle, but also utilizes the tighter .224″ free bore diameter of the .223 Remington cartridge for better accuracy potential. As we all know, you could not fire 556 NATO ammo in a .223 Rem chamber due to the pressure differential and slight chamber size differences. The .223 Wylde solves this issue and gives the shooter the best of both worlds.
*NOTE: 416R is a Crucible brand steel and it was formulated specifically for barrels. Most types of steel, including normal 416SS are not designed to be used in freezing temperatures. But this steel was designed to operate in arctic temperatures, up to -40F. 416R also has greater accuracy potential than normal 416SS and 4150 steel due to its ability to take highly defined rifling and machining cuts.
