Wichita, Kan.-based Westland Corp. is making bimetallic barrels using cast barrel blanks from Reiloy, a division of Reifenhauser Group of Troisdorf, Germany.
Westland will stock common sizes of Reiloy barrel blanks. The Reiloy blanks are free from distortion, eliminating the need for labor-intensive straightening operations and stress-relief annealing, the company said.
According to Westland, the wear-resistant Reiloy barrel blanks have a good reputation in Europe and Asia, but they have not been easy to get in the United States.
