GUNSMITHING SERVICES: Barrel Fluting
Weight reduction. Probably the single most asked question regarding fluting a barrel. We recognize the need for lighter weight guns where every ounce counts. Use our online fluting calculator above to give an approximate estimate of the amount of weight reduction you can expect from having your barrel "wrinkled up".
LongRifles, Inc. offers a broad range of barrel fluting options. Straight, helical, diamond, and interrupted or "skip" fluting is available. Our cutter geometry delivers a unique "industrial appearance" while avoiding the the razor sharp edges common to deeply fluted barrels. The use of CNC machining centers, modern insert cutter geometry, and rock solid work holding allow us to deliver inclusion free surface finishes for an exceptional presentation when left "in the white" or coated with Cerakote.
We have a new pattern/style available. "Wrought Iron" is our newest "twist" on barrel fluting.
We also have this pattern available for bolt fluting. When matched it's a nice way to complete a rifle
We've performed this service to hundreds of barrels using both the single point and button rifling methods of manufacturing. It's been demonstrated over and over again that our process has zero effect on accuracy.
Barrel fluting is largely cosmetic. Because of this we prefer our clients to allow us some "artistic freedom" with the flute count and depth. Because of the cutter design, sometimes it's beneficial to increase or reduce the number of flutes so that the finished appearance is symmetrical. This is one of the rare cases in machine work where "if it looks right, it is right."
