.300 BLK 8.5" NTD barrel report.
I order two Northtech Defense (NTD) Stainless Steel 8.5" Ultra Rigid .300 Blackout- Twin Tower Fluting barrels. Upon reception, I was already amazed by their fit, finish and raw presence. As I tended I installed mine on a fitted set of upper/lower from who else but NTD, both custom cerakoted with the newest E-160 Concrete from their Elite Series.
I chose 8.5” because the resulting pistol is extremely well balanced. As the say “it turns on a dime…” It is also lightweight, exactly 7 lbs. with the optic and a heavier gas piston system.
While the pistol feels and handles like a lightweight, my .300 BLK NTD barrels optimizes the bullet energy with sub minute accuracy and very little recoil.
During the ordering process, NTD was moving to Southern Oregon. They kept in touch with me by phone and text message, keeping me informed at each step forwards.
I am very happy with my purchase. When our son returns from overseas, he will built his own set and hopefully also comment here.
