    Accuracy International AW and AWSM Barrels

    Accuracy International Barrels For Sale

    Below are barrels for an Accuracy International AW and Accuracy International AW Super Magnum. I no longer have the rifles, so the barrels are surplus to my needs. I am told they should work on newer AI rifles like the AIAT and AIAX. But also a gunsmith advised me there may be enough metal on the tenon to turn down to fit other rifles. I am not a gunsmith so you should have to investigate this yourself.

    Barrel threads are for standard AI muzzle brakes. If the barrels have a thread protector on them it's included.

    Barrel #1 - AWSM 338LM
    Maker: Original AI taken off the original rifle.
    Calibre: 338 Lapua Magnum
    Length: 27"
    Twist Rate: 1:11
    Rounds Fired: 556 (All Logged)
    Price: $500
    Description: This was the original barrel mounted on the AWSM before it was converted to .300WM. The rounds on it are all logged and is accurate. Rifling is excellent with lots of life left. Excellent accuracy routinely 1/3MOA with 250 Scenars. Also shot up to 300 Bergers in this barrel out past a mile.

    I don't know. You'll have to talk to a gunsmith. The AI tenon is very thick and I've been told it can often be threaded down to fit other actions.

    M27x2.0 for all AI Rifles except AXMC
    -M30 x 2.0 for AXMC Barrels

    thats what I believe the threads to be off a 3rd party site, AI wont specify specs like that, YMMV
