“Grin_Reaver”I would imagine that pressing in the rifling from outside is not only much quicker but also avoids the need for expensive machining/ drilling bits that need periodic replacement due to becoming dull. I would also imagine that it is cost effective due to less material being required to make the thin barrel liners. The actual process and machine is a trade secret.

If I had to guess I think their secret process is just sending a heated tube through a die that rotates at a slow varying speed
