    Cutrifled

    Cut-rifled barrels have become very popular in centerfire rifles. Does the cut rifled barrel compete well in 22 rimfire ?

    Thanks.

    Very rarely, it is quite a controversial topic.
    Bartein does make them and Even will do gain twist. Kreiger offers them. There is some discussion of another top flight cut maker giving it serious consideration.

    Thanks.
    The $64000(almost) question is why or why not.

    Well a certain midwest blowhard has his opinions and unfortunately this is a monkey see monkey do type sport.
    Frank G has told me he has been shooting a couple gain twists, 16”-161/4” I believe, and frankly, I think
    I’d like to try one.
    The above mentioned maker has stated there is zero reason a topflight cut barrel won’t do well. That said, lots of apprehension about putting them out with said blowhard fully expected to fill the airwaves.......look at the pure BS Jerry Stiller has had to endeur.

    From a Kreiger

    The shown target was shot (indoors) with a .22 rimfire Kreiger.
    The Kreiger barrels have no taper.
    And I believe Kevin Nevius uses Kreiger barrels.

    Cooper barrels

    are cut. There are a few that compete in Maine that are competitive. Cooper makes their own, as you may know. John Hassam shot his way into the Hall of Fame with his.

    One and the same company

    That's correct. We have had a few blanks from Wilson. None of them were outstanding.

    I once asked the Head Man at Cooper how may people were involved with lapping their barrels. He said we have a machine that laps our barrels, nothing is better than a machine. Enough said I guess or at least I was speechless at that moment. How many other companies have a machine that lap their barrels with the same sort of success Cooper seems to have?
