Shelf barrels

Check out these shelf barrels – your barrel may already be made!

All Archer barrels are:-

  • Stress relieved after rifling to get all the stresses out. Then the bore dimensions do not change when contouring the barrel.
  • Lead lapped by hand for “hummer” accuracy right from the first shot.

Below is a list of what we can currently offer by way of calibres and twists. Every new twist rate for a given calibre requires a new button. If you do not see what you want, call us as we are constantly expanding the list and we may well be getting what you want.

Barrel contours and dimensions We have a fairly comprehensive list of standard barrel contours. If you require a non standard contour, or you require a modification to any of our standard contours, there may be a setup charge of £65 for the first barrel. This charge reflects the time required to program the CNC contouring lathe for your specific requirement. However, all subsequent barrels will be charged at the standard rate.

For finished barrel lengths greater than 30″ (762mm) there will be a surcharge of £20 per inch (25mm).

Barrel steel Archer barrels can be made in type 416R stainless, or in chrome moly steel. The hardness range will be 26 to 30 Rockwell ‘C’.

All export prices are quoted exclusive of VAT tax, which is applicable in the UK and Europe. The governing price is in pounds sterling.

Export requirements We are required to obtain an export licence for all barrls exported outside the United Kingdom. If you are outside the EU, we require a copy of your valid import licence in order to obtain an export licence. Everyone (including importers outside the EU) will need to fill in an End User Undertaking form.If you are the end user who will actually be using the barrel(s) use this form which can be downloaded from our website. If you intend to stock the barrel(s) for sale to customers in the future, use this form which can be downloaded from our website. It can take up to 28 days for us to obtain our export licence. Quite often, we find that the delivery time of our barrels is dependent on how long it takes to get the necessary paperwork in place. It is therefore imperative that you act quickly to send us the necessary documents.

The End User Undertaking form is not easy to understand, even if English is your first language, so we will be happy to email you a form already filled in for your order. All you will have to do is print it, sign it where indicated and sent it back to us.
