Proof Research 22 WMR Zermatt Arms Pre-Fit Carbon Fiber Barrel
Proof Research 22 WMR Zermatt Arms Pre-Fit Carbon Fiber Barrel was designed for Zermatt Arms TL3 and SR3 Origin and RimX actions making it easy to upgrade your rifle or change calibers. The pre-fit Zermatt Arms shouldered barrels are easy to install. Simply thread it on, torque it down, double check headspace and head for the range.
Why Carbon Fiber?
Carbon fiber has long been hailed across many industries such as aerospace, cycling, alternative energy. It is recognized as a wonder material that makes everything lighter and stronger. When employed in a rifle barrel the benefits extend beyond reducing weight and increasing strength. The Proof Research patented manufacturing process begins with full profile, match grade 416R stainless steel barrel blanks that are made in their firearms division. These blanks are then turned down to a significantly reduced profile greatly reducing weight. This reduced contour barrel is then wrapped with high strength, aerospace grade carbon fiber impregnated with a proprietary matrix resin. This Resin is developed by Proof Research’s advanced composites division, PROOF Research ACD.
The carbon fibers that Proof Research use have a unique ability to diffuse heat along the length of the barrel, much like fiber optics transmit light. Carbon fiber also moves heat very effectively through the wall of the barrel increasing heat transport resulting in barrels that cool faster, maintain accuracy over longer sessions of fire, and live longer. The end result is an a high fiber content composite barrel that is stronger, lighter, as accurate as the finest precision steel barrel, and durable to perform in the most demanding environments. They’re not just lighter, they’re better.
Proof Research 22 WMR Zermatt Arms Pre-Fit Carbon Fiber Barrel Features
Up to 64% lighter than traditional steel barrels of similar contour.
Extreme Temperature Resistance
Improved heat dissipation for cooler and longer lasting barrels.
Wrapped with high strength, aerospace grade carbon fiber impregnated with a proprietary matrix resin.
All shouldered pre-fit barrels are guaranteed for headspacing.
Due to variance in actions we do not guarantee the timing and alignment of the barrel engraving to your stock line.
Barrels are specific to the action type/length and are not interchangeable.
