Repeatable Precision

Cold hammer forging is a technique used in the production of high-quality barrels for firearms. This process involves forming the rifling of a barrel by using a series of hammers to flow material around a mandrel. The resulting product has several advantages over other methods of barrel manufacturing.

Cold hammer forging imparts exceptional durability and strength to the barrel, making it resistant to structural damage caused by the high pressure and heat that is generated during firing.

This process also creates a uniform grain structure throughout the barrel, leading to higher consistency and accuracy, resulting in a higher-quality product with increased longevity. 

Although the initial cost of cold hammer forging is higher, the improved durability and accuracy results in a reduced need for frequent replacement, making it a cost-effective solution in the long run. Cold hammer forging offers a superior solution for those seeking durability and accuracy in their barrels.

Creed Monarch has state-of-the-art equipment to manufacture Cold Hammer Forged Barrel Blanks as well as finish turned, milled, and assembled barrels. We have blanks, and mandrels on hand to produce the most popular caliber and twist rate combinations.
