Does anyone know if anyone make quality polygonal rifled barrels? I know Noveske say polygonal rifling but the barrels aren't true polygonal barrels but rather the grooves for the rifling are polygonal in shape. Thanks

Makes it really hard to use a gas block. I've seen a one in a magazine before, but it was round from the FSB forward.

I believe ARP offers polygonol barrels - 16" barrel listed as : ––1 in 8 " twist 5R rifling- .700" UTG, .750 GB, .700 muzzle

http://www.ar15performance.com/5_56_223

Is this what you mean? The 5R I believe is.

Polygonal rifling refers to the inside of the barrel, not the outside.

I don't think that this is polygonal.
5R is more closely related to conventional rifling.

Polygonal is a different animal.
Black Hole and Noveske use it.

How does your rifling work?

The shape of the lands and grooves are based on a circle, so there are no sharp corners or edges for the bullet to conform into. This means there is a tight seal and thus less bullet deformation. This rifling form is unique in its ability to allow the bullet to be centered and fully supported by the barrel’s bore.

Noveske is a little closer to a conventional type rifling but with the sharp edges of the lands being gently ramped down instead... But do they ever make some sweet accurate barrels!

My bad, I live and learn. Am looking at a 5R in 6.8 for my next build, was thinking wrong Not my first mistake Nor my last
++ And I even have a Noveske N4 with polygonal rifling, duh!! I get confused being dyslexic
Damned, I read Molon's article wrong, mistook his N4 info- surgery, Morphine and keyboards are a bad mix, I guess...

The PacNor/Noveske "7P", Lothar Walther, Shilen's "ratchet rifling" and the various 5R types are all a similar concept of modified lands of rifling.

N4 barrels are not polygonal to my knowledge....only noveske SS barrels get the poly treatment.

Lothar Walther makes excellent polygon rifled barrels.

http://www.lothar-walther.com/380.php

BTW the Japanese were useing polygon or (orb) as they called it in their Arisakas & MGs
in WWII because of the harsh jungle enviroments that the rifles were used in.
Those bores are also chrome plated.

I have a BHW 18" SS rifle gas barrel coming in next week for a SPR build that I'm working on. I have read good things about then and got it cheap from surplusammo.com

The inside is polygonal and the outside is round... like glock barrels. Definitely don't want my rifle to look like some winchester 1873/AR hybrid.
