Barrel Specifications:

PREMIUM HERITAGE SWAMP BARREL


Each barrel is selected from straight bar stock prior to being stress relieved in an electric furnace.

A carbide bore sizing die is pulled through the bore to insure bore dimension continuity. This procedure also will eliminate any tight or loose spots inside the bore. It leaves the top of the lands smooth and polished, equalling the traditional lead lapping procedure.

Installed breech plug: Each plug is hand fit and timed @ .500 deep. This ensures that the shoulder of the plug and the inside breech shoulder mate at precisely the same time to seal the breech 100%.

Each barrel blank is selected from straight bar stock prior to being stress relieved in an electric furnace.

Non-stressed relieved straightened barrels will develop a memory. This puts the barrel at risk of having a wandering zero. Stress relieving realigns the molecular structure giving stability and shoot-ability to the barrel.

Each barrel will be lapped to a mirror finish.

Straight barrels are crowned and threaded for breech plug.Breech threads will be bottomed against a square shoulder. The muzzle will be indicated in a 4-jaw lathe and the crown cut and polished at 60 degrees.

Breech plugs: optional - 3" straight tang supplied and fitted for an additional charge.
