Proof Research Carbon Fiber Barrels- Pre-Fit Savage Barrels

We have both crowned and threaded barrels in our inventory. If you have a preference please give us a call at 561-584-8500.


"PROOF has cracked the code with high-performance carbon-fiber barrels.” - Outdoor Life Magazine


Less than half the weight of comparably-sized steel barrels. (Finished weight under 3 lbs.)


PROOF Research is proving carbon fiber-wrapped barrels aren’t just a lightweight alternative to traditional steel barrels, but that they provide superior performance, including extreme accuracy, unprecedented durability and increased barrel life. By combining our unique manufacturing process with advanced technology composite materials and thermo-mechanical design principles, we’ve accomplished what others have failed to do in the past—match-grade carbon fiber barrels that weigh a fraction of traditional steel barrels while compromising nothing. They’re not just lighter—they’re better.


NOTE: The Proof Research Carbon Fiber "Sendero" actually measures very close to the standard M24 taper.


Your Pre-Fit Savage bolt-action barrel will arrive chambered and threaded in various calibers. We recommend a qualified gunsmith install the pre-fit barrel on your Savage. These barrels are made for the smaller thread size receivers. Feel free to call us to double check which one you have. You can also tell which thread size you have by measuring the barrel nut length. If it is 5/8" long you have the large thread and these barrels will not work but you can still use a bolt action blank and have it threaded and chambered by a gunsmith.  If your barrel nut measures 7/8" long then it would be the smaller thread and these barrels will work.

Description

Details

PROOF Research’s match-grade carbon fiber barrels are stronger, lighter, as accurate as the finest precision steel barrels and will maintain their performance in the harshest conditions. PROOF didn’t invent carbon fiber-wrapped barrels. They just perfected them.

  • Up to 64% lighter than traditional steel barrels
  • Match-grade accuracy
  • Improved heat dissipation for cooler and longer lasting barrels
  • No point-of-impact shift during high-volume fire
  • Reduced harmonic barrel vibration
  • Unprecedented durability

Your Pre-Fit Savage bolt-action barrel will arrive chambered and threaded in various calibers. We recommend a qualified gunsmith install the pre-fit barrel on your Savage. These barrels are made for the smaller thread size receivers. Feel free to call us to double check which one you have. You can also tell which thread size you have by measuring the barrel nut length.

Proof Barrels - Before & After

THE ONLY CARBON FIBER-WRAPPED BARREL APPROVED FOR USE BY THE U.S. MILITARY.

This patented manufacturing process begins with full-profile, match-grade 416R stainless steel barrel blanks that are made in our firearms division. These blanks are then turned down to a significantly reduced profile greatly reducing weight. This reduced contour barrel is then filament-wrapped with high-strength, aerospace-grade carbon fibers impregnated with a high-thermal conductivity matrix resin developed by our aerospace materials division.

Carbon Wrapping Of Proof Research Barrels

The aerospace-grade carbon fiber used is 10 times stronger than stainless steel and has a specific stiffness nearly 6 times greater than steel. But strength and stiffness are only part of the equation. Heat conductivity and thermal expansion are also of paramount importance when developing a match-grade, carbon fiber barrel. Our helical wrapping pattern favors the longitudinal thermal diffusivity of the carbon fibers (along the length of the barrel) allowing them to dissipate the heat emanating from the steel liner rather than insulate it. This is achieved through phonon transport in the direction of the continuous fibers and greatly reduces the mirage effect intrinsic in heavy steel barrels.

However, because our unique bonding agent contains a high-thermal pitch fiber—similar to those proven in Formula One and aerospace applications—our barrels also conduct heat very effectively through the wall (thickness) of the barrel, greatly increasing thermal conductivity and resulting in barrels that stay cooler and maintain accuracy over longer sessions of fire.

After wrapping, barrels are cured and consolidated then ground to their final contour. The end result is an aerospace-grade, high-fiber volume fraction composite barrel with less than 1% porosity suitable for the most extreme environments and capable of shot-after-shot accuracy that will impress the most veteran hunter or precision marksmen.

This barrel made my Savage portable again. This barrel was the essential part of shedding some weight off my Savage 10FP, I also switched to 6.5 Creedmoor, the fit/finish of the barrel is superb, installation was easy and shipping from Stocky's was super fast. Pricing was outstanding as well. Thanks for allowing me to turn my "bench-gun" back into a portable platform again. (Posted on 8/13/2017)
