Criterion AR-15 18" 224 Valkyrie Barrel
Designed by Federal Ammunition to increase the maximum effective range of the AR-15 rifle platform, the .224 Valkyrie offers superior ballistic performance when compared to the traditional .223 Rem/5.56 NATO cartridge.
Criterion Barrels Inc. is now offering select AR-15 barrels chambered in .224 Valkyrie. Hand lapped and manufactured from 416R Stainless Steel, these barrels are currently offered with a salt bath nitride finish in their standard Hybrid contour. The initial production batch of 1-7 twist barrels is scheduled for completion in Q1 of 2018. Faster twist options will be available later this year.
Chambers are finished, but barrels should be head-spaced and installed by a qualified gunsmith.
