Criterion Pre-Fit Barrels for Tikka and Remington.
The biggest influence on your rifles accuracy is the barrel!
Criterion Pre-Fit barrels start out as a match Grade Blank that is then contoured and chambered. The big difference is that the Pre-Fit barrels can be installed at home. The key is the the barrel-nut that allows you to set the headspace perfectly yourself. The bonus with the Pre-Fit system is that you can have multiple barrels and change them out to suit your requirements.
The barrels are all Match-Grade Stainless with a Stainless barrel nut. The Barrels Tikka barrels come with a specific wrench while the Remington Barrels use a Savage wrench.
NZRAC recommend headspace is set with a set of Go/No Go gauges, while headspace can be set off a full length sized empty cartridge we would again recommend this be checked with appropriate gauges as excessive headspace is dangerous.
Please note our first shipment has the "Cool Cartridges" our next shipment will have the everyday calibres.
The barrels all have a heavy sporter profile which is slightly larger than the standard T3 or Remington Sporter profile. The barrels can be further profiled by your gunsmith or fluteded to reduce weight. Most barrels are 26 inches and of course can be shortened to suit your needs.
