We are makers off extremely accurate replacement barrels in calibres ranging from .17 to .50 We have recently moved from our original site on the borders of Scotland to a more central location Birmingham England, being integrated into a very well established engineering co. by the name of Sassen Engineering. The move has opened up new opportunities for us and hope to introduce new and exciting products in the very near future. The barrels that have recently been produced on our new premises have been getting glowing results, winning competitions and also being reviewed on YouTube again with fantastic accuracy

Broughton 5C® Rifle Barrels are crafted from the finest material made today, 416R Stainless Steel. They are pulled button-rifled, Double stressed relieved at the mill & triple stress relieved in our shop at Broughton 5C® Rifle Barrels. Then each barrel is hand lapped with a uniform land and groove diameter up to 0.0001" from breech to muzzle. Our muzzle is NEVERlarger than our breech.

Super-Match": The PAC-NOR Super-Match barrel is our premium grade rifle barrel. These barrels can be supplied in stainless or chrome-moly steel. Super-Match barrels are made using a proprietary rifling button design which yields barrels that have an extremely uniform rate of twist for the ultimate in accuracy potential. Super-Match barrels are designed with a unique land/groove geometry which ensures a good bullet gas seal with minimal bullet distortion. This special land/groove configuration also substantially reduces metal fouling in the barrel when the barrel is properly broken-in. All Super-Match barrels are carefully hand-lapped to a fine lustre finish and exhibit the exceptional dimensional uniformity required for the high level of accuracy possible using this product. Super-Match high performance barrels are recommended whenever the ultimate in accuracy is required. These barrels are supplied as blanks, contoured blanks, and prefit contoured barrels.
We rifle all of our barrels using the single-point cut-rifling process. Although our machines are state-of-the-art, the process itself is the oldest and slowest method of rifling a barrel. It’s also the most accurate. The cutter removes approximately .0001 inch, or 1 ten-thousandth of an inch, at each pass, thus taking several hundred passes to rifle a barrel. This method produces almost perfect concentricity between bore and groove, a very uniform twist rate, and induces no stress into the steel that later has to be relieved. Along the same lines, we do absolutely no straightening of our barrels as this would only put stress right back into the steel.
