If Crio treated barrels are so good....

Recommended Posts

Why don't they use them on the pumps guns too? They talk about what it does for the semi autos so why not use them on the pumps guns, its not even optional. Is there any performance difference between standard pump gun barrels and the SBEII crio barrel?

Hmm. Quite interesting. I wonder how that process stacks up against Benelli's. Admittedly, that was a lot cheaper than I expected it to be.

 

While I doubt cost is the only factor, I suspect it is a major one. The pumps are significantly cheaper than the semis and are, clearly, geared to hit a different economic bracket of consumers.

cmshoot, did the cryo treatment make your guns shoot better? Cleric, even non-treated semi-autos are just as expensive, the beretta xtrema 2 is the same price and they aren't crio treated, remington auto-loaders cost a pretty penny too. The price difference is the same with most shotguns, the pumps are $300-$500 and the automatics are $700-$1500. I think pricing has to do with the semi automatic action, not the cryo treadment.

The amount of improvement varied from rifle to rifle.

 

Most showed some sort of accuracy improvement. The few that didn't, remained the same. I've never had one go down hill from being cryo'ed.

Bingo! But cryoing the barrel would drive the price up on the pumps, bringing them closer to semi price...

Couple of questions on this thread:

 

1. I have an M2 which uses criochokes; I presume the barrel itself is NOT criotreated?

 

2. Is there any reason you must crio treat the receiver AND the barrel together, or can you just do the barrel?

 

3. Is it relatively safe for the finish?

Well, I'm not supposed to be typing this, but there is talk of a SBEIII.

 

Some of the new features will be:

 

It will shoot low and to the right, instead of high and to the left!

 

It will stovepipe every round, not just the second or third. To do this, they're building a new perpendicular magazine so that the shells will stovepipe without even making it to the chamber.

 

It will be made of high carbon unfinished steel. You can also buy the "briney wash" kit to accelerate the corrosion even more.

 

Camo'd guns will be more realistic than ever, with their new proprietary "indigenous flora" camo.

When you buy the gun, Benelli looks up your house on Google Maps and determines which types of plant life are prevalent near you. They then cut a bag of leaves and twigs and glue them to your SBEIII for you.
