Replacement Barrel - John Hancock Rifle


Product Description

The announcement of the American Rifle Company NUCLEUS action has caused a flurry and with good reason!

It is something we at Patriot Valley Arms are proud to support and we have urged several action makers to make for several years.  American Rifle Company listened to us and did it in a BIG way.

We are supporting their endeavor in several ways, this is just one of them.


For a limited time, we will offer pre-fit barrels for the NUCLEUS receiver at a substantially discounted rate.  The blanks used are the Rock Creek Barrels proprietary PVA spec "house barrel".  These are heavily tested and thoroughly reviewed barrels that just flat out shoot.  In fact, while testing them during the match season this year the "house barrel" specification WON multiple matches including the Mason Dixon PRS Finale.  


Here's the deal on the GB:


In order to keep this from getting too complicated with custom orders I need to keep it somewhat streamlined.  The barrels are going to be Shouldered installations.  This means no gages needed, no barrel nut, etc.  Just a barrel vise, action wrench and some grease for the threads.  Torque to 75ft-lb and you're good to go.

Here is the caliber list, it's short and sweet to the most popular calibers that we have cut in the last 2 years.


6mm Creedmoor - SAAMI 

6 x 47 Lapua - 110 Freebore, our standard match winning setup for 105-115 class pills

6.5 Creedmoor - SAAMI, this will shoot pretty much anything

6.5 x 47 - this is setup for the 140 class bullets; 163 freebore. This is the reamer spec that Kevin Jensen and Ken Sanoski used to make Top 15 overall in the 2017 PRS.

308 Win - 0.070 Freebore, SAAMI body our "Tactical" reamer for 165-185 class bullets


6mm and 6.5mm will be 8 twists

30cal is a 10 twist


All are 5R barrels and all are button rifled unless expressly noted and upcharged above.  Cut rifled take additional time for manufacturing and the lead will extend a bit.




Medium Palma

Heavy Palma


The HP weighs the same as an M24 so if you're an M24 guy this could be a good solution to get GB pricing on a barrel.


The blanks are 27" so the max length is 26". 


Price includes muzzle threads. 

The price here only goes through the end of the Intro pricing that ARC is offering on the NUCLEUS, Sunday Jan 29th at midnight.
