A word about barrels....
(button vs. cut rifling)


Many customers often call and have the question regarding what is the significant difference between button rifling vs. a single point cut rifle barrel.  In short, it all has to do with vastly different manufacturing processes.  Both processes have been around for several decades, both yielding extreme accuracy and fine performance, which is why Keystone Accuracy confidently offers both types.

All button barrels are fundamentally manufactured in the same manner regardless of manufacturer's asking price, which is a much faster and less expensive method of rifling.  As a result, button barrels are often significantly less expensive and are said to yield about 20% less life than cut rifling, while still delivering fine performance.

Single point cut rifling is the oldest of the two methods and is more time consuming, but is often cited as holding accuracy longer and also seems show more gradual signs of expiration over a button rifled barrel.

So....which is better??  I think the answer lies with how often will the barrel is to be used and what will meet your budget.  I have done well in rifle competition with both types, but my personal opinion is that at the same cost, I'd use a cut rifle barrel every time, while at a significantly less cost for a button barrel, I'd again defer to usage to make my decision.  This is precisely why I offer virtually the same button rifle barrel for $190 less than a single point cut rifle barrel.  Either way, you'll get the finest barrel available dollar for dollar.

Muzzle options

All barrels can either be requested in both post-ban and pre-ban configuration.  This "ban" terminology refers to the Clinton gun ban of 1994 which restricted the public purchase of threaded muzzles.  It expired in 2004, however the terms conveniently stuck.
The most common muzzle threads are 1/2-28 and 5/8-24.

Muzzle threads............add $10
