PROOF Research Rifles
At PROOF Research we meld our unique manufacturing process with next-generation aerospace materials and thermo-mechanical design principles to create a truly innovative product—match-grade carbon fiber barrels that weigh a fraction of traditional steel barrels while compromising nothing.
Our patented manufacturing process begins with 416R stainless steel barrel blanks manufactured in-house. These blanks are then turned to a significantly reduced profile to greatly reduce 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 end result is an aerospace-grade, high-fiber content composite barrel that is stronger, lighter, as accurate as the finest precision steel barrel, and maintains its accuracy in the most demanding environments.
It’s carbon fiber perfected.
