These are the same barrels that are receiving so much attention in the AR15 forums!

The lightest, accurate, fastest cooling match-grade barrels in the world.

We are now offering a drop-in barrel package for the Savage 110 series of rifles, which consist of your choice of chambering and caliber and twist in a Mike Rock rifled SS blank, wrapped in a patented carbon fiber application, that is pre-chambered and ready to install in your Savage bolt action rifle.

These packages start at $675 for the barrel, plus $135 pre-fitting cost for a barrel up to 26" for Savage. Additional lengths at $20 per inch added cost.

We also can provide barrels for Remingtons, Accuracy International, Winchester, FN, and most any type of bolt action rifle, including the big BAT or McMillan actions in 408 CheyTac, like the one shown in the picture below.

I can provide pricing for these others on request.
In some cases, we will need to have your action sent in to us, so that we can do the finish chambering and headspacing.

Benchrest quality work is done on every barrel we make.

Please IM, Email, or phone me at my contact information below in my sig line.

These are full custom barrel packages, with the highest performance carbon fiber treatment ever made for firearms use.
They have the ultimate match grade accuracy from the Mike Rock rifled blanks we use.
All work is benchrest tolerance.
For the price of a normal SS Krieger, you can have all the accuracy, better cooling , and lighter weight, by using an ABS barrel.

All ABS barrel prices will be going up by $100 each, starting Sept. 9, 2005.
We had a massive increase in our cost of carbon fiber recently, and we simply have to raise the prices.

If you are looking to get one of these barrels, try to act before then, because you'll save some money!

Savage barrels will be $700 each after Sept. 9.

Hi Chrimea,

We price the Savage barrels as follows:
Barrel price based on the Tactical Heavy Contour - $675 plus Savage fitting at $135. Total $810. Price based on 26" max. $20 per inch beyond 26" finish.
We have to know the action's original chambering when fitting the barrel. The Savage rifles originally chambered in the WSM, Ultramag and Lazerroni cartridges have a 1.125 x 20 tpi action, all others are 1.055 x 20.
Available chamberings are on the Advanced Barrel Systems website under the custom services/custom rifles page. Chambering restrictions are as listed above. Only those actions originally chambered for WSM/Ultramag/etc may be chambered in those fat cartridges. Conventional belted mags and all others can go in the 1.055 x 20 tpi action.
The brake pictured on the Mac action is a custom from MacArthur and is not available for sale. Recommend the Vais or our Titanium brakes (1.5 ounces) at $200 installed.
Barrels are ready for customer installation. They need a go gauge or at least a dummy round, Savage wrench, and barrel vise. Customer needs to engrave or stamp the caliber designation on the barrel after installation.

Mike's son Jon on his very first deer hunt of his life!
294 yard shot off the bipod, after a low crawl thru the field.

Rifle is blueprinted Remington 700 action, with 30" ABS carbon fiber barrel, chambered in .243Win.
Rifle doubles as Jon's target/varmint rifle.

Nice work!

This barrel is the ticket for your lightweight build, without having to suffer the problems from that "soda straw" skinny barrel.

You can have light-barrel weight, and heavy-barrel accuracy, all in one.

Great for tactical use, while not being too heavy to carry!

A fantastic choice for Hunter Class Benchrest competition, where you need to really keep the weight down.

Just a great idea all around, for keeping accuracy high, velocity high, barrel life high, and keeping heat low.

have you guys come up with a barrel for a m14 yet ?

No barrels for M14's yet.
I'm going to talk to Mike at ABS about that, next time I get him on the phone.
I'm thinking that is something we should get into.

Mike has been so busy with all these other types of barrels, that he hasn't really had any time to work on the M14 carbon fiber barrel engineering. I hope he can get to it.

Stop in to Mike-Rock's booth #707 at the SHOT SHOW to see some of the new ABS barrels.

ABS is showing a full carbon-fiber package, with carbon-fiber barrel that features an integral carbon-fiber suppressor, built in 300WSSM on a Surgeon short action, which weighs in at a total of under 7 pounds for a complete tactical precision suppressed rifle. It looks like it has a big bull barrel on it, but it is actually an integral suppressor! Super light, super sleek, and "Hollywood Quiet"! WOW!

Come see us.
