    I think the Hammer forged barrel is worth the price premium. Its a better barrel made by none other than Fabrique Nacionale. (FN)

    I'm having trouble pulling up those links, tried hours ago and same now. Anyway, assuming the only difference is hammer forged vs. button forged and $50, I'd pay the extra for HF. Probably not terribly important but I think the process results in a stronger and better machined barrel. Accuracy can be better too but I haven't noticed that comparing my HF AR (lightweight) vs. my button barrel AR (HBAR).

    Since the LW barrel is much thinner than average I felt better going for hammer forging (in my Daniel Defense barrel).
