Used in firearms, these parts have another unofficial name - muzzle or gunpoint. Now we will find out what is the purpose of the barrels and what varieties you will find in the Zarimex online store.
What is a barrel
This is a part of the firearm, having the form of a tube, in which the exhaust gases of the bullet, after their ignition in the chamber during the shot, push it at high speed under pressure. The barrel also allows the bullet to be aimed in the desired direction of the shot, and the closed space and accurate calibration allows maximum acceleration of takeoff and maximum striking power.
Usually in its rear part it always has a cartridge-chamber, in which the bullet ignites after pressing the trigger. For this purpose, there is a firing pin , which after releasing the trigger, hits the cartridge at a certain point and this helps to form a spark and ignite the gunpowder.
What types are there
According to design features, the barrels are divided into smooth-bore and rifled. In the latter, there are special rifles in the inner part along the entire length of the barrel. When the bullet takes off, they give it a rotating motion and increased acceleration, which leads to greater striking power and accuracy.
Hunting shotguns usually have smooth-bore barrels inside and their cartridges are based on bullets, the size of which is measured at zero. For example, 13/0 corresponds to 8.5 mm.
Length also matters, because the larger it is, the greater the striking qualities and range of the weapon. This is due to the increased time during which acceleration is performed under the pressure of the exhaust gases in the barrels.
