“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 a barrel can be pressed to create rifling from outside, then the material of the barrel should be very soft. Can a soft barrel last as long as traditional barrel?

Can you show me a picture of inside the  smooth twist barrel?


Why firearm industry didn’t do it that way? is it because airgun pellet is  very soft?
