Patriot Valley Arms, Accuracy International (short action) pre-fit barrels.
Josh Kunz of Patriot Valley Arms is a world class machinist and gunsmith with years of experience in both competitive shooting and mechanical engineering. You can see his work in action at the highest level of competitions such as the Precision Rifle Series, Camp Perry NRA Nationals, and the World Long Range Palma Championships.
Prior to the use of pre-fit barrels, if you wanted an extremely accurate rifle you would have to spend a lot of time and energy finding a qualified gunsmith. Then you would have to handpick all the components for the rifle build and hand them over to the gunsmith of your choice. Possibly the worst part of the process was that you would have to wait weeks, and in many cases, months before your rifle was complete and ready to shoot.
That era of rifle building is coming to an end. Currently many custom actions are made with such tight tolerances that a gunsmith can produce a pre-fit and chambered barrel for a particular action. This allows the customer to buy all the components for their custom rifle build and assemble them on their own with just a few tools.
Now that Accuracy International produces rifles with the Quickloc system, pre-fit barrels can be made and shipped to the shooter without the AI action being present. This platform is perfect for having multiple barrels/calibers available so you can switch them whenever and wherever you want. These pre-fit barrels will only work for Accuracy International rifles with the 27mm small shank design. All barrels will be a medium palma contour with match grade chambers. The barrel manufacturer used will be based on availability and will be chosen by Josh Kunz. Possible barrel manufacturers include Bartlein, Hawk Hill Customs, Rock Creek, and other premium manufactures. The available options are 5/8x24 muzzle thread pitch and barrel lengths of 22", 24", 26", and 28". You may also choose what caliber in which your chamber is reamed (6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Win, 6XC, or 6.5x47 Lapua). Please contact us if you would like a barrel length or muzzle thread pitch that is not specified above.
