When PROOF Research was formed in 2012, our vision was both simple and extraordinary. Our truly innovative founders envisioned a company that would apply advanced science, new technologies, aerospace-grade materials and manufacturing excellence to produce a new class of products that would truly revolutionize the firearms industry. Our Blaser R8 barrels exemplify our founders’ pursuit of relentless excellence.
Our Blaser R8 carbon fiber & steel barrels are available in a variety of calibers, lengths and twists. These are barrel blanks that come ready for a gunsmith to chamber and fit to your action.
Up to 64% lighter than traditional steel barrels of similar contour.
Improved heat dissipation for cooler and longer lasting barrels.
Wrapped with high-strength, aerospace-grade carbon fiber impregnated with a proprietary matrix resin.
Excellent erosion wear characteristics and corrosion resistance.
An optimum combination of high tensile strength along with requisite toughness to withstand extreme chamber pressures encountered during firing.
