Cryogenic treatment for gun barrels reduces residual stresses in the metal for faster velocity and tighter, more consistent groupings. This article describes four firearms experiments with before-and-after data for a Ruger Mini-16 Ranch Rifle, P320 Compact, P320 XFive, and two AR-15 barrels.
Nitrofreeze® has joined the fight against COVID-19 by cryogenically deburring the rotary valve seats used in ventilators.
The cryogenic treatment of gun barrels is a permanent way to eliminate residual stresses that can affect performance. The benefits include reduced friction, heat, and wear along with easier gun cleaning, better muzzle velocity, and increased accuracy.
Nitrofreeze® wants you to know that we qualify as an “essential” business and remain open. Because of our work with medical devices, our Worcester-based company is part of the supply chain that’s fighting COVID-19.
Dry ice blasting and abrasive ice blasting are surface cleaning methods with cost-saving advantages over sand blasting, power washing, slurry blasting, and dustless blasting. Compare dry ice blasting vs. abrasive ice blasting and make the right choice for your application.
