Gear Rainier Arms Introduces CHF Barrels Recoil Staff May 11, 2012 Join the Conversation Started by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, Rainier Arms has introduced their own line of AR-15 Cold Hammer Forged (CHF) barrels. These barrels are made from Chrome Moly Vanadium steel with chrome lining, heavy mil-spec phosphate exterior coating and are magnetic particle tested. All barrels are chambered in 5.56 NATO with a 1:7 twist, and are available in 14.5 or 16 inches in length. Each length is available in either government or lightweight profile. One nice touch from Rainier is that a pinned low profile gas block is included with their CHF Barrels.
