ATA19 Match Grade Glock 19 Barrel; Elite Series - BlackAmerican Tactical Arms
Our ATA19 Elite Series of barrels are Match Grade. These Glock 19 barrels are CNC machined from American 416R Stainless Steel. When designing our Elite Series of barrels, compromise was something that we would not tolerate.
Most barrels on the market begin their journey with a long, cyclinder piece of stainless steel. As the steel bar is shipped, gravity acts to create a slight bend in the structure. Once the bar arrives to the facility, a large drill runs through the center, hollowing out the steel bar. Using a high pressured, push-button style rifling process, the twist rate is then added to the bar with one swift pull. The rifled steel is then cut into individual barrel blanks. Because of the slight bend in the bar, the drill cannot create a cavity that lies perfectly center and true throught the entire steel bar. The high pressured push-button process also strains the steel. The final product creates subpar barrel blanks, all in which vary in concentricity. These blanks are then milled into the manufactures design.
How are we different? Here at American Tactical Arms, we take the time to create each barrel blank individually - one by one. Like most manufactures, we start with a long bar of bendy steel. However, we cut the steel into individual units before hollowing it out. Each unit is then individually drilled with respect to the center point; ensuring that each bar is perfectly concentric and true. Once we have a perfectly concentric unit, we add the rifling delicately and precisely using a broaching technique. This allows us to shave off a hair of material at a time with each stoke. After multiple pull throughs, we finally get a strain free, perfectly true barrel blank. This creates the perfect canvas for our high quality, match grade barrels (our Elite Series), ready to enhance the performance of your Glock 19 or Polymer 80 build.
