We are the future of carbon fiber gun barrel manufacturing! BSF Barrels has a wealth of knowledge and experience in everything related to the manufacturing of carbon fiber products. We are a fast growing business that has now set a new industry standard that will be unmatched. The industry is constantly changing, so it’s important that keep up with the latest advancements. All of our barrels are made in the USA at our locally owned shop. We have spent years developing this barrel to be the most cost efficient, accurate and versatile barrel on the market. Through various testing and opinions of fellow experts, our end result is truly an amazing outcome.
BUILDING THE BARRELS
BSF Barrels uses Carbon Fiber in a way the we feel is most effective. After turning down the barrel, we jacket a 416R Stainless steel match barrel in a roll-wrapped carbon fiber sleeve and load it under tension. 95% of the carbon fiber does not touch the stainless steel creating air gaps and allowing air to foil around the steel and cool the barrel faster. We use this jacketing method 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 machine openings into the carbon fiber allowing air to move around the barrel and vent heat quicker without any delamination issues. This also allows the barrel to stay mostly free from being in contact with the rifling itself. We have achieved a vibration dampening effect meaning the carbon absorbs the shock and vibration allowing a more consistent shot and groups. Using the Carbon Fiber this way keeps the rifling straighter the warmer the barrel gets because it's under tension. This allows us to maintain superior stiffness and strength while keeping the barrel extremely lightweight. These barrels have been in development and testing for years and are patented (Patent No.: US 10,365,061 B1). We have been holding SUB MOA along all of our barrel lines.
