Paradigm Carbon has a revolutionary new product in the carbon fiber wrapped barrel market and we're pleased to be launching dealers for them. The barrels are based on Rock Creek stainless, double normalized, double lapped blanks that PVA has developed into a regularly sub 1/2MOA prefit. Now someone has taken those blanks and developed a method for wrapping them in pre-preg carbon cloth to maximize weight reduction and stiffness without any of the negative thermal management issues that have consistently plagued other CFRP hybrid products.
We at PVA spent nearly 10,000 rounds on testing prototypes this year including over 2000 rounds testing on one particular 6.5mm Creedmoor blank to know that these are the top tier. Thermal soak testing that included 50 round strings and the last 5 shots were sub 1/2 MOA at 600+ yard targets. Performance that is the hallmark of the best barrels available for match rifles: now available in a sub 3lb Sendero package for your favorite hunting rifle. If someone wants to go even lighter there is another option HERE for the Ultralight variant.
These are also capable of being cut down from 16.5-26" lengths, no longer is there are requirement for carbon wrapped blanks to be ordered "to length" like in the past. Cutting is simple, see our Instagram page for the video of how we do them.
Contours are Rem Sendero with 1.2" of steel at the breech for fitting to the receiver which allows fitting to almost all receivers on the market.
Twist rates are as follows:
