About McGowen

Formed in 2007, McGowen Precision Barrels builds on a proud tradition of custom barrel manufacturing.  McGowen Precision Barrels was started with the purchase of Harry McGowen’s “mothballed” machinery.  The  manufacturing process has been updated to 21st Century techniques. Using state of the art equipment, and finely honed manufacturing techniques, McGowen Precision Barrels aims to make the highest quality barrels on the market. The manufacturing process continues to undergo changes and improvements in the pursuit of perfection.  The McGowen Precision Barrels name is making an impact in the industry, not only in hunting rifles, but are now becoming a favorite of long range competition shooters.


Cut Rifling

We are in the process of perfecting the age old tradition of cut rifling.  We are still a few months out from producing barrels for sale.  We are working on cut barrels with the highest degree of accuracy manufactured with 21st Century digital perfection.   Stay tuned and learn more soon!

Future Projects & Growth

McGowen Precision Barrels will continue to upgrade our machinery and our capabilities. One upgrade in our capabilities is the addition of cut rifled barrels. As of February 27th, 2014 we are still working on the cut-rifling machine. We do not have an anticipated date in which these will be available. Please note that calibers will be limited at first as we bring the machines online. We’re also working hand-in-hand with our sister company McGowen Gun Works to manufacture custom rifle actions. We are currently working on the final design on our patented Mini action. We’re working hard to have this available before the end of 2013. Keep watching here and our sister companies website americangunco.com for more information. [/fusion_builder_column_inner]
