Carbon Fiber Rifle Barrels Perfected

Whitefish, MT –-( Until now operators needing a lightweight precision rifle system have been forced to compromise between weight reduction and consecutive-shot accuracy.

Reduced-contour steel barrels are typically capable of only a few consecutive shots before heat causes a significant shift in point of impact; foam-filled fiberglass stocks tend to be less rigid and more damage-prone; and previous attempts at producing carbon fiber-wrapped barrels have also had heat-related consistency issues.

That was then, this is now.

Based on a patented carbon-fiber barrel-wrapping technology and proprietary manufacturing process, Proof Research manufactures carbon fiber-wrapped barrels that significantly lighten warfighter load while offering superior performance over traditional steel barrels.


  • Match-grade accuracy
  • Up to 50% reduction in barrel weight
  • Increased barrel longevity due to super-efficient thermal conduction (Proof Research’s carbon fiber-wrapped barrels transfer heat much more efficiently than steel barrels and previously introduced carbon-fiber barrels)
  • No point-of-impact shift during high-volume fire
  • Increased rigidity minimizes harmonic barrel vibration
  • Available for armorer/gunsmith installation


Started as a custom firearms manufacturer, Proof Research continues to produce world-class tactical, hunting, and target rifles. By combining craftsmanship with high-tech components, such as our carbon fiber-wrapped barrels and carbon fiber/ Kevlar composite stocks, we are able to produce lightweight, high-performance rifle systems tuned to the shooter’s body, mission, and operational environment.

how much would a 18.6” tavor X95 barrel cost

Wild Bill

Well, this article is more than four years old so I would think that we would know by now how long their carbon fiber barrel lasts, and whether this rifle (and rifle company) was a success or not.

Roy D.

Interesting. Not for everyone; but, interesting.

Not very good grouping for a barrel that costs $900+.
If it won’t shoot 1/2 MOA or better, why would I spend my money?

Wane Luckert

Looking to build one in 300 H&H can you provide that in 1-10, and in 24 inch threaded?

Monty C Harkins

Very impressive.

Quick question, I noticed the shooting benches, looked really good, what are they
made out of? Did you build them?

i was just looking for a good carbon barrel recently bought a christiansen arms 300 rum the throat was to tight poping primers 2nd gun and 12 weeks later samething plus wouldnt feed ammo and the barrels retain the heat bottom line the gun and their customer service both suck looking for someone else to deal with
