This barrel features a match grade chamber and hand lapped bore, which makes it very easy to clean and care for. The strict manufacturing process that this barrel goes through holds tolerances to no more than plus or minus .0001" from breech to muzzle, and each barrel is digitally measured to ensure exact tolerances. Two additional features on this barrel include snake flutes which provide unsurpassed rigidity and longitudinal stiffness as well as increase the ability for quicker barrel cooling, and a forward blow compensator which directs noise and gases away from the shooter. Conveniently drilled and tapped to accept the Volquartsen barrel mounted scope mount, throw on an optic and you are ready to go. Barrel weight is 3 lbs 6 oz and is 20" in length.
"We cut our barrel shanks oversized by .0025" to give us a very tight fit into the factory receiver. This tight fit prevents the barrel from canting downward as the locking block is installed."
