The Stretch 15 Barrel is highly regarded by shooters around the state. The new 15 inch length is brand new and is one of the softest shooting barrels you will ever find of this length. This barrel, along with the stretch 16 was designed to have traits that collectively very few other barrels have. The 223 Wylde chamber maintains the accuracy of a 223 Remington chamber and the strength of a 5.56 NATO. You can shoot both 5.56 and 223 Remington ammo out of this barrel without issue. The Wylde is regarded as the most accurate chamber when choosing between the three. The 1/8 twist rate is inherently a superior twist rate when it comes down to stabilizing a wide variety of projectiles. The button rifled bore does not require a break in period, all lapping is taken care of by McGowen. The stretched gas system is one of the most notable traits of this barrel. The gas length is approximately 2" longer than a mid length system and 1.5" shorter than a rifle. The intermediate gas system does a great job of reducing pressure throughout your operating system. This barrel is cerakoted in Colorado, looks great, and will last for a long period of time. If you want the ideal barrel for competition, the Stretch has all the features that you will ever need.
