The BBG Tactical was designed to deliver the core competencies of a mid- to long-range law-enforcement sniping rifle—precise, repeatable point of impact, minimal mechanical action, durability, simple operation, reliability, portability and shooter comfort in the field.
Key to the BBG Tactical is its 24-inch stainless steel Kreiger barrel. The barrel stock is first cryogenically stress-relieved to ensure a straight bore axis during repeated firing sessions, and allow for a cleaner, stress-free rifling cut. The rifling is then cut using the single-point cut process, which has been proven to maintain optimal land/groove uniformity during the rifling process.
Attention to details and precision tolerances further separate the BBG Tactical from the pack. The muzzle, for example, is cut with an 11-degree target (concave) crown to within 0.0002-inch concentricity with the bore. High-speed photography has shown a target crown of 11 degrees to be most similar to the natural trajectory of gasses escaping the muzzle behind a bullet. The 0.0002-inch concentricity of the crown to the bore ensures the gas escapes uniformly, and no gas-induced "wobble" is introduced as the bullet exits the barrel.
