How Cryogenics for Rifle Barrels Increases Their Life Span and Accuracy

Although cryogenics can be a difficult process to understand, it can be simplified by explaining how cryogenics for rifle barrels increases their efficiency, accuracy and life span. Just like with tools, at Millennium Cryogenic Technologies we can double the life expectancy of your rifle barrel, and as fellow Albertans, we know how important hunting season is.


With the short hunting season—if you’re one of the lucky ones who wins the hunting draw—you need a rifle that matches your stamina. The best way to do that is with cryogenics for rifle barrels.  Thankfully, we can do that for you.


How cryogenics for rifle barrels works


Simply put, a cryogenics rifle barrel treatment uses liquid nitrogen to lower the gun’s temperature to well below freezing. The rifle barrel is kept in this state for 24-hours to alleviate the lingering stresses and imperfections created when the rifle was being manufactured.


How cryogenics for rifle barrels increases life span and accuracy


After the cryogenics treatment the molecular structure of the rifle barrel changes, creating a major decrease in abrasive wear. Thus hardening and refining the rifle’s metal, making it more durable.  Each time you shoot your rifle, the barrel experiences fatigue and heat stress, causing your accuracy to decrease. Cryogenics for rifle barrels stops this from happening and you will instantly notice the following as well:


  • Increased shooting velocity of around 50-60 feet per second
  • Reduced wear, friction and heat for a more efficient barrel life
  • Smoother function when shooting, and tighter grouping for increased accuracy
  • Improved wear resistance for easier cleaning


It’s also important to note that cryogenics for rifle barrels only has to be done once to double the life span of your rifle.


At Millennium Cryogenics Technologies, we are dedicated to helping Albertans understand cryogenics and how it can be used in everyday life, and in industry.
