is Cryogenic Treatment?
can you expect?
Industries - Firearms
Firearms are a well known application for
cryogenics. Treatment of the barrel has conclusively been shown to
increase the accuracy of the the gun. Cryotreatment works to:
* Increase firearm accuracy
* Reduce barrel wear
* Reduce barrel fouling
* Reduce heating of the barrel
* Reduce wear on moving parts
We have gunsmith customers who will not work on a gun unless they can
cryogenically treat the entire mechanism. They find that everything in
the weapon works better after treatment.
The cost of treating a barrel or an entire gun is quite modest
compared to the benefits. Note that it may be necessary to adjust the
powder load to gain maximum benefit from cryogenic processing of the
barrel, as the process does change the muzzle velocity and therefore
the standing waves within the barrel.
When the barrels of firearms are treated, there is an increase in
the accuracy of the rifle barrel. We attribute this to the fact that
the barrel vibration is reduced and is much more stable than an
untreated barrel. Some shooters report that they have been able to
reduce the size of their pattern significantly through the use of the
Cryogenic processing improves the wear resistance of a rifle
barrel in the same manner it improves the wear resistance of tooling.
This works for both rifle barrels and shotgun barrels. The process has
been in use in the soviet block countries for some time for both small
weapons and cannon
Reduced Barrel Fouling
Our customers routinely indicate that the process makes it easier
to clean the barrel after a shooting session. This is a very popular
feature and we get comments on it consistently even if we do not tell
the customer to look for it.
Mechanical parts of the weapon last longer.
The mechanical parts of a firearm wear just as do machinery parts.
Our gun customers who shoot a lot report that there are fewer failures
of springs and other mechanical parts in a treated firearm. They also
say that on fine guns, the action feels "silkier". We attribute this
to the fact that the energy that would normally be used to wear the
part is now not necessary in the action, thus the silkier feel.
