Prefits are really taking off!
We offer prefit barrels in 2 styles.
The first and most prevalent is the barrel nut prefit. This is a prefit barrel that utilizes a barrel nut system to tighten the barrel onto the action. The benefit of this style of barrel is that it’s easily fit up by anyone at home with a proper wrench and go/no go gauges. 5 minutes is all you need to swap from one caliber to another, so you can easily run one action, one chassis and one scope while switching just the barrel from .308 to 6 Creedmoor! We make barrel nuts and wrenches for Savage Small Shank, Remington 700 (Remage) and Tikka T3. These barrels will come with a shank diameter of the same size as the action threads but can taper to a number of muzzle diameters. They also come with 5/8-24 muzzle threads unless otherwise requested
The second type is a shouldered prefit. Many high quality actions are on the market with tolerances so tight that we can spin you a shouldered barrel that will marry up to your action and be perfectly headspaced. Some examples of these would be AI, Bighorn, Impact and many others. If you don’t see it on the list shoot us a message and I’m sure we can make it work for you. If you are planning on truing whatever action you are needing a barrel for please let us know before ordering. Trued actions generally require us to fit the barrel to the action in house so a shouldered prefit may not be viable for you.
All our prefits get the same treatment that all our other barrels receive. They are all honed, hand lapped and double stress relieved.
