I'm not really aware on the mechanics of the gun, would simply changing out the barrel improve accuracy? Or are there other criteria?
Proper installation/prep makes a difference as well. Including, but not limited to, lapping the upper, proper torque on the barrel nut, and (of course) ammunition choice.

Not a "bargain" HBAR barrel barrel at $260-$300, but also not requiring expensive chambering and crowning like match grade barrel blank. These barrels are 416R SS, cryo-treated, hand lapped, air gauged, and chambered in .223 Wylde. Downside is weight. Legal in MD.

Check youtube.com for reviews and videos of these barrels. I have two RRA Varmint barrels, and they are both very accurate with minimal fouling.

The upper on my AR is RRA. They definitely take the "Heavy" in HBAR very seriously. Thing weighs a ton.

I've been looking at the uppers (minus bolt+CH) that are available, its a RIPOFF. For just 100 more I can get the full gun.
I'm afraid of some of these plastic budget AR's, I sh*t you not, I've seen the sear break (piece that engages chipped off), on one of them at the range... (it was just range use).

Looks like they got duped by a lobbying firm. Bearing arms followed up with this:
