BERGARA MAKES PRECISION BARRELS FOR PRECISION RIFLES
Bergara has quickly become one of the most respected barrel makers in the world. Our barrels are manufactured in Bergara, Spain, and being used by numerous top-tier gun manufacturers in both Europe and the United States.
A HISTORY OF PRECISION
Manufactured in Bergara, Spain, a region known to produce some of the finest guns in the world, Bergara has combined the most technically-advanced barrel manufacturing equipment with an unwavering commitment to quality and value. This superior technology combined with decades of barrel making experience delivers a production barrel that performs like it was custom made.
Our barrels are used by both, gunsmiths and most advanced gun manufacturers in the world.
We standardized the product portfolio in order to deliver barrel blanks to any gun makes within few days. Additionally, we included the B14 HMR and BMP barrels contours for the shooters who want to switch the barrel to their B14 rifle.
Step 1 Face Turning
The solid bar is face turned in order to assure straight deep hole drilling.
Step 2 Deep Hole Drilling
Once the steel bar is straightened, it moves on to a four-spindle deep hole drilling machine where a specialized bit drills a perfect hole through the entire length of the bar.
Step 3 Turning
Turning the barrel before honing helps get a better bore finish.
Step 4 Honing
Most other barrel manufacturers move from deep hole drilling to reaming, a process that leaves tool marks in the bore. Instead of reaming, Bergara uses three separate honing spindles that utilize diamond tipped bits that polish the interior surface of the barrel to a mirror-like finish that is almost completely free of tool marks. This time-consuming step lends Bergara a level of accuracy on par with barrels costing much more.
Step 5 Button Rifling
A carbide rifling button is drawn through the barrel to produce the rifling grooves at the appropriate twist rate for each caliber. This produces a groove diameter deviation of less than 2/10,000 (or .0002”) of an inch. It’s the same result that many gunsmiths accomplish by hand lapping.
Step 6 Stress relieving
Finally, a high temperature heating process realigns the steel molecules ensuring that the barrel is free from any stress after the button rifling process. Doing so the barrel will be more reliable and will last more rounds.
