Carbon fiber has long been hailed across many industries—aerospace, cycling, alternative energy—as a wonder material making everything lighter and stronger. When employed in a rifle barrel the benefits extend beyond reducing weight and increasing strength. Our patented manufacturing process begins with full-profile, match-grade 416R stainless steel barrel blanks that are made in our firearms division. These blanks are then turned down to a significantly reduced profile greatly reducing weight. This reduced contour barrel is then wrapped with high-strength, aerospace-grade carbon fiber impregnated with a proprietary matrix resin developed by our advanced composites division, PROOF Research ACD. The carbon fibers we use have a unique ability to diffuse heat along the length of the barrel (much like fiber optics transmit light). Carbon fiber also moves heat very effectively through the wall (thickness) of the barrel greatly increasing heat transport resulting in barrels that cool faster, maintain accuracy over longer sessions of fire, and live longer. The end result is an aerospace-grade, high-fiber content composite barrel that is stronger, lighter, as accurate as the finest precision steel barrel, and durable to perform in the most demanding environments. They’re not just lighter—they’re better.

Up to 64% lighter than traditional steel barrels of similar contour

Match-grade accuracy

Improved heat dissipation for cooler and longer lasting barrels

No point-of-impact shift during high-volume fire

Reduced harmonic barrel vibration

Unprecedented durability

By designing a bolt action barrel blank, we have opened up countless options for chambering in your favorite caliber and having the ability to fit a large variety of actions. Our bolt-action barrels are available in a variety of calibers, lengths, contours and twist rates. Your bolt-action barrel will arrive ready for thread and chamber by your gunsmith.

*Wildcat Disclaimer
PROOF Research’s barrel blanks may be finished with a wide variety of custom chambers for standardized or wildcat cartridges per the gunsmith’s and end user’s preferences. As such, there is no guarantee of performance in terms of accuracy, muzzle velocity or bullet stability.

This is especially true for wildcat cartridges that have no standardized chamber, cartridge design or pressure limits. PROOF Research’s barrels have been designed for safe operation with the vast majority of known cartridges and within SAAMI and CIP pressure limits.
