I am happy to announce that after much work, coordination, agreements and research, that MDWS will be launching its own line of barrels soon!  The shop we have contracted should be ready to start running our line in about 2-3 weeks.  We should have lead times down to 3-4 weeks for any cartridge/barrel we want.  416R stainless, 4140CM, 4150CMV coming soon.  Fluted, threaded, Cerakote, Bead Blast, and soon Melonite finishing available for all.

The biggest problem we have had is keeping up with demand with the delays from other manufacturers.  This will no longer be the case.  Now, all we need is the blanks and we will do all the machining ourselves.  We will be sourcing blanks form McGowen and X-Caliber to start, but, we can get a custom Kreiger, Shilen, or whatever blank you want and run a one-off custom barrel for you as well.  We will source Green Mountain, and any other blanks available in the calibers we want or need, and will label the finished products as such.

This will change everything.  We will be tooled up and ready to run barrels in the following cartridges:

277 Wolverine
6.8 SPCII
6.5 Grendel
.223 Wylde
.358 Yeti
7 VAR
7.62x40
6mm Mongoose
6x45
.30 Sabrecat
6.5mm Something or Other (JW's new creation)

...and others once we get the blanks and tooling in.  6.5 Grendel and 6.8SPC II probably coming in towards the end.


2017 is going to be a hell of a year for us, and you.  "Whatever you want" is what we're going to strive for.  That being said, crazy one-off's that require special programming will cost extra, but all "standard" barrel requests will be "standard" price.  We'll have a full price point and photo session available for everyone once the machines are up and running.

The machines?  Oh yeah...

There is a Badboy blasting cage and Cerakote oven in the mix as well, not pictured, as well as many other process benches, etc.  There is a lot more to this than what you see.  This is a couple hundred thousand dollars worth of machines and tools we have involved in this setup.  

You guys are going to love what it is that we will be able to do.  If there is a cartridge you want us to do, we can talk about it for sure.

Thanks for all your support and special thanks to the folks on the team for helping make this happen!

Sweet deal.  Is this just going to be barrels for the MSR or will you be able to do savage barrels too with this machine.  Congrats on the future potential.

Outstanding on the dies.

Are you going to make go/ no go guages as well?

I have rem 700 action stock and wyatt's bottom metal thinking about what it wants to be when it grows up.
