Precision is an experienced barrel manufacturer. All barrels are manufactured with time tested accuracy and functionality. All A.P.I. standards are closely adhered to from material selection to our in-house honing and threading operations to quality control.
Barrels are offered in the following materials:
Nitro Steel Hardened
For use in mild abrasion and corrosion. The ID of the barrel is heat treated to provide a hardness of Rc 65-70.
Made from 304SS to withstand severe corrosion and medium abrasion.
May be added to plain steel and brass barrels where severe corrosion is an issue. Harness up to Rc 72 with an applied thickness of 0.006″ after honing.
Useful for severe abrasive and corrosive wells. Made by introducing silicone carbide particles into a nickel matrix and applying to carbon steel or brass. The hardness yield exceeds all other specified A.P.I. hardness levels.
