Rifling Buttons

June has arrived with more rain and clouds in New York. We hope this subsides as we are having a sales team Golf Outing next week. This month we are featuring one of our security/defense manufacturing items – rifling buttons.

Rifling buttons are precision cutting instruments for forming the rifling grooves and resizing the bore in gun barrels.  Our sizing ranges from 14 caliber rifles through 10 gauge rifled shotgun barrels. We offer rifling buttons with any helical twist right or left handed. We have several options including rifle only, bore only, or combination style. The rifling buttons are either pushed or pulled through the barrel. The rifle buttons come coated with Titanium-Nitrate or Titanium Aluminum Nitrate coating to extend the working life and protect the barrel finish by keeping cut materials from cold welding to the buttons.

Check out the short video on Rifling Buttons and manufacturing a barrel:

Our rifle buttons are made to your exact specifications or we can determine the size of the button based on material, hardness and wall thickness of the blank.
