Rifle barrel profiles K-class

Every rifle barrel has the grooves and fields on the inside, required by the calibre. Calibre and twist are perfectly adjusted to each other – this results in the high precision. But also the outside barrel profile is more than a design element. Next to the standard, round barrel, Merkel manufactures different rifle barrels. Utilising the different profiles, vibration behaviour, warmth distribution and weight can be influenced. All barrels have a similarity: they are exclusively cold forged in the company with the experience of the manufacture – made in Suhl, Germany.

Standard barrel

The standard barrel is a pragmatic and universalist, it combines good vibration behaviour and little weight with optimal tuning to the twist rate suitable to the corresponding calibre.

Fluted barrel

An optical highlight with function: fluted barrels look good, save weight and cool down quicker.

i-Sight system

The barrels in diameter 17mm all possess the universal i-Sight System in combination with a covered M15x1 muzzle thread. Using a single allen screw, front and rear sight can be detached, the front sight also can be moved to the back – depending on shooting either with a suppressor, without sights or with a muzzle break.
