Krieger Barrels: Precision Engineering for Elite Shooters

Krieger Barrels: SS, 6mm, K#17 Heavy Varmint, 8 Twist, 29'' Blank, 4 Groove

Krieger Barrels stands at the forefront of precision barrel manufacturing, catering to the world's elite target shooters and custom rifle builders with its extensive range of single-point cut-rifled barrels. From the meticulous selection of steel to the refined process of single-point cut-rifling, Krieger Barrels embodies the pinnacle of accuracy and performance.

The Importance of Steel

The foundation of a Krieger barrel's unmatched quality lies in its steel. Early in its history, Krieger Barrels established strict specifications for the steel used in their barrels, insisting on rigorous heat testing for each batch to ensure compliance. This ongoing process of testing and refinement ensures that all Krieger barrels, whether stainless steel or chrome moly, meet the highest standards of quality and performance.

Single-Point Cut-Rifling: A Tradition of Precision

Employing the traditional yet highly accurate method of single-point cut-rifling, Krieger Barrels achieves near-perfect concentricity and uniform twist rates. This labor-intensive process involves removing a mere .0001 inch of material at a time, ensuring that the finished barrel exhibits no internal stress and provides the shooter with the highest possible accuracy.

Commitment to Excellence

After rifling, each barrel is lapped to remove tool marks and then hand-lapped to achieve a finish that not only enhances accuracy but also eases cleaning and reduces fouling. This dedication to producing a superior barrel is reflected in the ultra-smooth finish of under 16 micro-inch, surpassing even the stringent requirements set for M-14 National Match barrels.
