    Carbon fiber's excellent heat dissipation qualities allow for longer shooting sessions without the performance degradation that can be seen in steel barrels.


    Accuracy Improvements

    The rigidity of carbon fiber contributes to better accuracy, as it minimizes barrel flex during firing.


    Durability and Longevity

    The composite material withstands environmental stressors better, offering a longer service life.
    Steel vs Carbon Fiber

    Comparing Carbon Fiber to Traditional Steel Barrels

    When it comes to performance, carbon fiber barrels have several advantages over steel. They offer a superior balance of strength and weight, perform consistently across a broader range of temperatures, and maintain their precision over more shots. However, these benefits come at a cost, making it important to weigh the advantages against the investment.

    Carbon Fiber Types

    Types of Carbon Fiber Prefit Barrels

    From bolt action rifles to AR platforms, carbon fiber prefit barrels are available in various configurations to suit nearly any shooting discipline or preference. Each type is designed with specific applications in mind, whether for hunting, competitive shooting, or tactical purposes, ensuring that there's an optimal barrel for every shooter's needs. We offer 3 versions, original, nickle, and 50-50 wrapped.

    How Carbon Fiber Barrels Are Made
    The manufacturing process of these barrels is a testament to creativity and smarts of engineering, and involves the careful layering of carbon fiber around a precision-machined metal liner. We essentially wrap the material onto the barrel. This process not only ensures the barrel's strength, durability, and weight reduction - but also its unparalleled accuracy.

    Installation of Prefit Carbon Fiber Barrels

    One of the primary attractions of prefit barrels are the ease of installation and the versatility they offer. With minimal tools and some basic gunsmithing knowledge, shooters can upgrade their rifles at home. However, for those seeking the utmost precision when installing a prefit carbin barrel, professional fitting from a gunsmith is still the best route.
