Krieger Barrels: Precision Crafted for Superior Performance

Krieger Barrel - SS, 5.56mm, K#7 Light Target, 8 Twist, 29'' Blank, 4 Groove

Introducing the Krieger Barrel in 5.56mm, a testament to precision and quality. As a leader in manufacturing single-point cut-rifled barrels, Krieger Barrels has been meeting the needs of top target shooters and custom rifle builders since 1982. Our barrels, crafted for a range of applications from competition rifles to high-power service rifle competitions, are renowned for their unparalleled accuracy and performance.

Commitment to Quality Steel

The foundation of a Krieger Barrel's excellence lies in the quality of steel used. Our meticulous approach involves specific steel formulation, heat testing each lot to assure strict compliance with our high standards. Over three decades, we have perfected the steel composition and heat treatment process to deliver consistent excellence in every barrel, whether stainless steel or chrome moly.

The Art of Single-Point Cut-Rifling

Our commitment to accuracy is exemplified in our single-point cut-rifling process. This time-honored, precise method ensures perfect concentricity, uniform twist rates, and eliminates stress on the steel. Our state-of-the-art machines take hundreds of passes to rifle a barrel, removing only .0001 inch per pass, resulting in a product of unmatched accuracy.

Exacting Lapping Process

Post-reaming and rifling, our barrels undergo a rigorous lapping process. Hand-lapped to remove tool marks and then finish lapped, our barrels achieve a smoothness that enhances bullet travel and reduces fouling. This meticulous process results in finishes under 16 micro-inch in the direction of the bullet travel, surpassing even the stringent requirements of the M-14 National Match barrels.
