Barrel Work

The barrel work below is completed in the up most professional manner. Having a Sunnen Honing machine here, allows us to remove light pitting and scratches from shotgun bores. It also allows chokes that have been opened to remain straight with the bore.

Forcing cones are lengthened using a Clymer reamer (industry standard), and then polished bright, with no reamer marks.

Chambers are sleeved to correct oversize and headspace. This process is done on precision Bridgeport milling machines. Most sleeves are only installed about one inch deep. To attempt going any further or doing a complete chamber, can sometimes weaken the integrity of the barrel in the mono-block. At this time, we can only hone 12ga & 28ga bores.
