View Full Version : AR-15 Hbar, Target, Accurized ?

On Colt's website, descriptions are the same for all three.
OK, I assume the accurized version is the most accurate.
But what's the difference between HBar and Target Hbar?
What does Hbar stand for?

Hbar stands for heavy barrel. Unlike the military barrels, which are skinnier than the rest of the barrel under the handguards, the Hbar almost fills out the handguards.

Heavy Barrel, ie: the diameter of the barrel doesn't taper down under the handguards like a regular barrel.
