Description

Designed with the Varmint shooter in mind. The 24″ length will allow you to take full advantage of the velocity of the round, before the law of diminishing returns takes effect.

The optional LiFe HD® (Lithium & Iron) process is a proprietary process similar to Melonite/QPQ, but with better options. The LiFe HD® process creates a smoother (less porosity) surface finish, this imparts higher corrosion (twice the corrosion resistance as QPQ) resistance and lubricity characteristics. The hardness and depth are almost identical to QPQ, but LiFe HD® accomplishes it’s goal with a single one step procedure compared to the multi-step processes of QPQ (quench polish quench). A more uniform/deeper black finish also seems to be a byproduct of the process.

Bergara has combined the most technically-advanced barrel manufacturing equipment with an unwavering commitment to quality and value. This superior technology combined with decades of barrel making experience delivers a production barrel that performs like it was custom made.

Each barrel goes through a rigorous process with testing. If a barrel deviates more than .004″ from straightness it is rejected. Chambered with a floating pilot reamer instead of solid. After deep hole drilling, most companies move directly to reaming, a process that leaves tool marks in the bore. Bergara precedes that process by honing the bore with three separate spindles utilizing diamond tipped bits. This process gives the barrels interior a mirror-like finish with no tool marks. Next, a carbide rifling button is drawn through the barrel to produce rifling with a groove diameter deviation of less than .0002″. Finally, stress relieving is done by high temperatures which assure the barrel is free of any stress. Again, this is done after the rifling process which is extremely important for accuracy and overall quality.

Bergara guarantees a higher degree of accuracy over any other production barrel on the market. Accuracy is GUARANTEED. If your new Bergara barrel (installed in same action and stock) doesn’t produce superior groups to those of any competitive production barrel of the same caliber, contour & length, they will replace it at no charge.

    These are fantastic barrels for ARs where long barrels are advantageous. Accuracy in my sample of two is 0.5-1 MOA with 40 to 80 grain bullets out to 300 yards, fouling is low, and cleaning is easy once the barrel is shot in after a couple hundred rounds or so. With a suppressor mounted (which is easily accomplished via the threaded muzzle), the rifle stays beautifully on target both before and during recoil, which permits the shooter to spot the shot and adjust without the assistance of a dedicated spotter. I don’t know yet about the LiFe finish yet, either on its own or in comparison to nitride (i.e., melonite, etc.) for either longer life or corrosion resistance, but we’ll see. In sum, tentatively, I think the only way to reliably get a better barrel is to get a custom cut-rifled barrel at $500-$600 or so… In sum, these barrels are a bargain at the original price, and just crazy stupid good for the current sale price.
