View Full Version : WTK Barrel accuracy question

March 28, 2002, 12:14
Are the DSA double stress relieved/chryogenically treated barrels worth the extra $ as far as acuracy is concerned?

They have the chryo treated barrels, similar barrels not chryo'd and new argentine chrome lined. Which to choose??

Cryo does help with accuracy but you also need good sights, trigger, and a free float tube to get the optimum accuracy out of it (if accuracy alone is what your after).

If not, I would go for a new Imbel or Argentinian barrel, some places will cryo your barrel for $30-60 bucks if that's what your after. Sometimes you can get lucky and get a really good GI tube. Chambers will take any NATO ammo, chrome lining is tough to beat and the barrel is made to last and for heavy use. Just my experience/.02. :cool:

So unless I upgrade my sights, and install a free float hand guard, I propbably won't notice much difference between a good military barrel and an aftermarket barrel, as far as accuracy is concerned.

If you are wanting to buy one of their regular FAL barrels I couldnt tell you.


I have seen some pretty good results with DSA's medium contour barrel. I built two rifles for a customer with them. One of the rifles was shooting a 3/4 inch group at 75 yards. That is with me shooting open sites on my elbows. Wouldnt believe it if I hadnt been the one doing it.

The customer was so happy with them he sent two more for builds.
