Make your rifle standout as much as you do. This Grey and Black Jacketed barrel is as stunning as it is precise with the match grade precision 5R button rifling. After turning down the barrel, the 416R Stainless steel match barrel is wrapped in a roll-wrapped carbon fiber sleeve and load it under tension. This jacketing method is used rather than wrapping the barrel in carbon fiber because this method of wrapping has been proven to trap heat and cause delamination. The carbon fiber we use is specially designed to move at the same expansion rate as 416R stainless steel. We drill holes into the carbon fiber allowing air to move around the barrel and vent heat quicker without any delamination issues. Using the Carbon Fiber this way keeps the rifling straighter the warmer the barrel gets because it's under tension. This allows superior stiffness and strength while keeping the barrel extremely lightweight.
