18″ .22 LR Force Honeycomb Barrel. We utilize a Lothar Walther stainless steel 18″ bull barrel with a 1 in 16″ twist rate and a recessed crown. Lothar Walther barrels are precision machined in Germany to the highest industry standards. The “Force Honeycomb Lightening” system is an innovative and unique fluting design for gun barrels that sheds weight, a lot of weight, while maintaining structural integrity and optimum strength to weight advantage. The hexagon pattern of the “Force Honeycomb Lightening” minimizes material while retaining structural integrity and reducing the overall weight of the barrel. Bottom line is, we maximize weight reduction, Force reduced the weight of the 20″ barrel, a 17 ounce reduction, by shortening the barrel 2 inches and machining the honeycomb pattern into the barrel. Other fluting methods boast a weight reduction of 4 to 5 ounces, the Force Honeycomb and the shorter barrel reduces the weight by over a pound without sacrificing structural intergity.
