Cold Hammer Forging of barrels has been known for decades to produce the most accurate, longest lasting rifle barrels obtainable. The Cold Hammer Forging of barrels is accomplished through intense hydraulic pressure applied at opposing angles by carbide steel hammers. During the hammering process, a mandrel is inserted into the bore while the carbide steel hammers shape the barrel around the mandrel creating the chamber, the lands, and the grooves. In addition to the aforementioned benefits, the Cold Hammer Forging process creates a defect free bore and the most consistent chamber possible.

Stripped Barrel  1.28lbs 
Barrel w/ LPG 1.36lbs 
Barrel w/ FSB  1.59lbs

  2. Excellent Barrel for my Kubota carry, Ranch work and will hit consistently as good as my hold and eyes will do.
    Had my first chance to use the Stripped barrel yesterday on a build finally finished. Using a Vortex Razor AGM UH-1, 17 mph cross wind with gust to 22 mph we zeroed at 36 yard on 10" plate. Barrel did excellent with 1/4 to 1/2" groups. At 180 yards its groups spread out but That was due to the wind and poor eyesight from two men wearing glasses. Excellent product, very pleased with it at this time.
