About Pedersoli PMG barrels...
With the acronym PMG, the Pedersoli manufacturer identifies its Premium Match Grade barrels, realized from CNC machined quality materials and rifling obtained from broaching process, using slowly rotating broaches, pulled while cutting the steel, creating helical grooves, fractions of a millimeter deep at each pass. The same process is repeated with progressively larger broaches, until reaching the desired grooves depth.
The outside barrel surface is lapped and polished with abrasives stones removing any metal roughness and smoothing the surface. The bores lapped and polished whether rifled or smooth bore.
