The Perfect Blend Of Craftsmanship, Elegance & Weight Reduction
Fluting is the precision milling of steel from the exterior of a barrel, with a primary purpose of removing weight, and to a lesser extent, to create rigidity and increase surface area for a given weight, resulting in a higher overheating tolerance. Weight reduction is dependent upon the length and profile of the barrel, with a direct relationship between the length and weight of the barrel, and the amount of steel that can be safely removed.
In addition to weight reduction, increased rigidity and heat tolerance, fluting provides a unique way to personalize your rifle while making a bold statement at the range, or in the field. Aesthetics are taken into consideration by our fluting technicians when engineering fluting depths, as they balance the practical benefits with elegant design and precision craftsmanship to create your perfect barrel.
THE FOLLOWING FLUTING OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE TO ORDER BY PHONE – AND WILL BE ADDED TO OUR SITE SHORTLY:
Straight fluting is the classic style
Honeycomb removes the maximum amount of material that can be eliminated without compromising the safety and integrity of your barrel
Hurricane fluting is a helical twist on tradition. It is the traditional straight fluting, but wrapped around your barrel
Average lead times for all barrels are 8-16 weeks depending on configuration. The 224 Valkyrie is now on the website under AR 15. Dismiss
