We Wanted Better Barrels for Our Guns
We didn't start out looking to build a business; we just wanted better performance from our AR rifles. Shooting began as a hobby for us, and it didn't take long to get obsessed with distance and accuracy. However, some of the earliest barrel upgrades that we purchased were disappointing, to say the least. We ran into problems with chamber sizing; some were too shallow, some were too deep. We received barrels that had gas ports that were the wrong size, and one where the gas port was in the wrong location. The final straw, though, was when we couldn't get any tighter than a 5-inch grouping at 100 yards with a barrel from one of the bigger names in firearms manufacturing. We had had enough.
So We Made Our Own Barrels
We found a supplier who could provide consistently accurate blanks and did the rest of the machine work ourselves. We customized the profiles the way we wanted them. We reamed the chambers, did the threading, and drilled the gas ports: all to tolerances tighter than MIL-SPEC. The pursuit of our hobby down this particular rabbit hole had left us with some of the best barrels we'd ever put lead through. Not only were we impressed with them, but so were our fellow enthusiasts out on the firing range. It didn't take long for the questions to start rolling in: "Can you make one of those for me?" That got us thinking.
And Then We Started Our Own Company
Now we make rifle and pistol-length barrels for fellow enthusiasts, law enforcement officers, and anyone else who's looking for a better barrel. We take pride in our barrels, and put as much care and attention to detail into each one as if we were making them for ourselves.
