The ZEV Match-Grade Drop-In Barrels feature extremely tight tolerances and are manufactured with pre-hardened chromium stainless steel (416R); originally designed for use in Match-Grade rifle barrels. This material provides high tensile strength and toughness to withstand typical chamber pressures while still being greatly corrosion resistant.

Each and every one of the barrels are cut, rifled and inspected for groove dimensions and broach finish.
