A popular method for breaking in brand new barrels is to clean the bore after every round for the first 25 rounds, and then clean the bore every 10 rounds for the next 100 rounds.

Any of our 5.56 chambered barrels will shoot .223 Rem. Firearms that are chambered for .223 should not use 5.56 NATO ammunition due to the higher pressure.

Typically, the caliber determines the thread pitch on the end of the barrel.

  • 5.56x45 / .223 - 1/2" x 28 TPI
  • .22LR - 1/2" x 28 TPI
  • 7.62x51 / .308 - 5/8" x 24 TPI
  • .300 BLK - 58" x 24 TPI
Laser Engraving

Typically, laser engraving is completed within 5 business days, depending on the part needing to be engraved and the artwork. Rush service is available for an additional fee, provided the artwork is proper quality.

The best type of graphics for us to use for laser engraving are vector artwork, such as AI, EPS, or PDF. These types of files are preferred because they are infinitely scalable and ultra-high quality. Raster images such as JPG, TIFF or GIF can be used but only if they are 300+dpi in resolution. If a poor quality file is provided, the laser engraving will not be clear.

If graphic design is needed or the file is not up to our standards for use in laser engraving, there will be an additional fee. A quote will be given before any work is started.

Using our CO2 laser engraving machine we are able to mark:

  • Wood
  • Acrylic
  • Plastic
  • Glass
  • Cloth/Leather
  • Coated Metals
  • Anodized Aluminum

With regards to firearms engraving, it is mostly typical to engrave on anodized aluminum, plastic and wood.
