Ballistic Advantage is committed to providing products that meet, or exceed, the expectations of the most discerning customers. They stand behind that commitment. From the moment you unwrap one of their barrels, as you configure it with your receivers and handguards, and as you fire it on the range or in the field, they want you to experience the unique elegance and uncompromising quality crafted into every barrel.

BA also stands behind their commitment to performance. All Ballistic Advantage barrels are guaranteed to give sub Minute of Angle (MOA) accuracy with match grade ammunition.1

If you are not completely satisfied with the form, fit, and finish of any of their barrels, please first consult the Troubleshooting Guide on their website. If you find that your BA barrel is not performing at the high standard of sub MOA accuracy, visit Contact  to discuss your concerns. Usually, their armorers are able to resolve any issues over the phone. If the issues are not resolved they ask that the barrel be sent to them for inspection.2 They will either correct the problem, replace the barrel, or reimburse the purchase price of the barrel.

1 BA defines sub MOA as a group size of 1 inch or under at 100 yards with a 3 shot magazine fed group, or 5 shot single loaded group.

2 The customer is responsible for the initial return shipping costs of the barrel. If any defects are found, BA will reimburse the shipping costs and either replace or refund the original purchase price of the barrel.
