TIKKA COLD HAMMER FORGED BARRELS FOR UNPARALLELED PRECISION

Cold hammer forging produces accurate and durable barrels. During cold hammer forging, Tikka barrels are hammered from all sides against the mandrel inside the barrel, transferring the mirror image of the rifling machined on the surface of the mandrel.

A cold hammer forged barrel has many advantages. The CHF method provides exceptional control of the bore and groove dimensions, resulting in excellent dimensional accuracy and tolerance. A cold hammer forged barrel has smoother barrel surfaces compared to other barrel manufacturing methods such as button rifling and cut rifling. This guarantees consistent high quality and precision: every Tikka barrel is Second to None.
