Quality takes time, and Columbia River Arms will never expedite production at the expense of perfection. All custom configured barrels, regardless of options, undergo a multitude of hand-crafted processes and rigorous quality assurance inspections throughout the manufacturing process, before shipping out to satisfied customers, resulting in a wide and varied range of production times.
You can be assured that the time you’ll wait for Columbia River Arms’ quality and performance will not only be worth it, but will soon pale in comparison to the extended lifespan of your new barrel, and the performance you will enjoy into the future.
Production Time Estimates – Black Hole Weaponry Barrels
Barrels with little to no customization (i.e. fluting, finish, etc.), and of most common calibers and profiles currently have a 2-3 month average production time.
Configured barrels with various customization (i.e. fluting, finish, etc.), and those of less common calibers currently have a 3-4 month production time.
In an effort to focus our energy on getting your barrels to you as quickly as possible, we have streamlined our production inquiry process. To receive an update on your order, please visit www.columbiariverarms.com/order-inquiry and submit your inquiry. All inquiries will be batched and answered on the first business day of the following week, so please allow sufficient time for a response.

Wildcat cartridges and specialty items
We manufacture barrels, and as such we will chamber the barrels to your requirements. The actual mechanical function of the firearm and alteration of the geometry for correct feeding is up to the end user. Gunsmithing may be required. The simple replacement of a barrel does not ensure that the entire firearm is mechanically correct for your intended purposes.
Bolt action, Single Shot Rifle, or Pistol actions
All installation is subject to proper inspection and installation to include head spacing and determination of the suitability of any action for your intended purpose. BHW/CRA will not make any determination as to the suitability or safety of your firearm’s action or your intended application. All responsibility is the end user’s and and/or purchaser’s.
Given the very nature of such firearms actions with the wide range of specifications, tolerances, and individual manufacturing methods, every barrel must be inspected and fitted to each action individually to establish things such as, but not limited to, headspace, the amount of unsupported cartridge, recesses, clearances, and general suitability for your desired purpose
Due to the countless manufacturers of rifle bolts and gauges, it is extremely difficult to make all barrels’ headspace uniformly with all gun bolts and actions. BHW/CRA uses go and no go gauges supplied by Pacific Tool and Gauge that are set to the industry standard. We also employ gauge standards for AR 15 and AR 308 bolts as measured from the base of the locking lugs (locking surface) to the bolt face. We have jig fixtures to measure bolts, gauges and use a solid one piece gauge that eliminates the need for the use of AR bolts during the manufacturing process.
We cannot alter our product to match your personal bolt. If we were to alter our product beyond our standards for your bolt. And the barrel bolt combination were ever to become separated for any reason. We would have an issue of having a barrel on the market that does not meet accepted factory standards.
All items purchased from BHW/CRA are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier.
It is our #1 priority to ensure customer satisfaction, and will do everything in our power to ensure that you are completely satisfied with the product(s) you purchase from Columbia River Arms, but we realize that in some cases the only alternative is a refund. However, no refund will be issued until we have had an opportunity to examine and test the product in our shop to determine manufacturing or tolerance issues. If we find some issue with our product, or decide for customer satisfaction to simply replace the product, we do so without admission of any fault. We retain the right to refuse to warranty products past 90 days from the original purchase, and a copy of the original receipt may be required. We retain the right to repair your original barrel, or manufacture and provide you with a new product, which we will ship to you postage free. Refunds for preauthorized returns will be issued only to the card that was used to complete the initial transaction, and we reserve the right to limit returns for products that are returned in new and unused condition within 10 days of purchase. Please do not return COD as CODs will not be accepted. Please contact Columbia River Arms to request assistance with returning the barrel, and if it is determined that it is likely a warranty issue, we will provide you with a postage paid shipping label.
Order changes after three business days of order placement may incur a fee of $25.00 up to a maximum of 25% of the total cost of the product, depending on where it is in the manufacturing process. If you barrel will need to be restarted to make the requested changes, you will be assessed the corresponding fee, and your order will be restarted and your manufacturing lead times will reset. (Estimated lead times are 8-16 weeks, depending on barrel type, features, and production schedules.)
