Mass Polishing of Gun Barrels - Types of Different Gun Barrels
Pistol barrels are different because they are made of different materials in different shapes and sizes. You can find pistol barrels made from stainless steel, aluminum or even carbon fiber. All these different pistol barrels need to be polished to perfection.
The good thing about polishing pistol barrels is that they are not long. You can polish them easily using a bowl vibratory tumbler or even a centrifugal barrel polishing machine.
You can also polish them using a trough vibratory polishing machine. However, it is not necessary to use this machine.
This gun barrel blank is one of the primary components of any rifle. It is what helps a gun become more accurate – meaning the polishing has to be impeccable.
They are longer than pistol barrels. It thus means that polishing them will require a tub vibratory polishing machine.
Double-barrel shotguns have exceptionally long barrels, which undoubtedly require the tub vibratory polishing machine. These double barrels will certainly require heavy precision polishing.
You can contact Inovatec Machinery today to acquire your tub vibratory polishing machine.
The AR15 gun has a long barrel, which will also require the tub vibratory polishing machine. It is almost similar to the double-barrel shotgun’s barrels lengthwise.
Rifle barrels do not have a lot of differences from gun barrel blanks. You’ll still require the use of the trough vibratory tumbler. Inovatec Machinery can become incredibly helpful in this case.
Today, the AK47 is one of the most popular and widely used guns all over the globe. It also has a long barrel, just like the AR15 and the double-barrel shotgun. This gun is highly accurate, meaning you have to polish its barrel to the highest possible degrees.
You can use the trough vibratory polishing machine to polish your AK47’s barrel.
Abrasives for Polishing Your Gun Barrels
As you read earlier on, gun barrels are made using different materials. For heavy metals, you need to use highly aggressive barrels. You can also use lesser aggressive abrasives for metals such as titanium because of their sensitivity.

1. What is a Gun Barrel?
A gun barrel is one of the primary parts of any gun. It is the front part of the gun where a bullet passes through under high pressure. It is what delivers the projectile (bullet) in the direction you want under incredibly high velocity.
2. What are the Primary Reasons for Gun Barrel Polishing?
There are undoubtedly various reasons why gun barrel polishing is so important. Check them out:
Firstly, appearance sets the tone of how you will perceive the gun’s performance. If its appearance is not appealing, it will be highly difficult for you to love the gun or its performance.
If your gun barrels are not effectively polished, then, its accuracy will certainly be negatively affected. The gun barrel entails the muzzle of the gun. Thus, the barrel’s polishing should be impeccable to ensure that the muzzle has a clean polish. It should enhance accuracy.
Proper symmetry ensures that your gun does not miss its target. Proper symmetry can only be achieved through proper polishing.
Polishing will help your gun maintain the proper symmetry.
Polishing gets rid of impurities and any form of corrosion completely. Corrosion and impurities are the primary reasons why your gun barrels become weak.
Well, polishing them makes your gun barrels more robust – just as they should be.
Polishing gun barrels (especially those made of steel) is imperative before bluing them. You need to polish them well so that the coating is smooth and long-lasting.
Remove Tarnishes and Oxides
When you fire several rounds, the barrel will have oxides and tarnishes after exposure to the environmental moisture.
Effective polishing does away with these oxides and tarnishes.
3. How are Gun Barrels Polished Manually?
The manual process of polishing gun barrels is highly mechanical. There are two primary ways of completing the manual polishing process.
Both situations require the use of a polishing wheel. Firstly, you can choose to pass your gun barrel on the edge of the polishing wheel.
There are different polishing wheel heads with different levels of abrasive strengths. You need to be experienced to get the sleekest finish.
The second way is by making your gun barrel immobile. You can then make your abrasive wheel mobile so that you can polish your gun barrel.
4. What is a Gun Barrel Polishing Machine?
A gun barrel polishing machine is responsible for the surface refinement of your gun barrels. The machine can polish several barrels at a go.
The trough vibratory gun barrel polishing machine ensures that the process is efficient, effective, and time-conscious.
It is capable of polishing rapidly – several hours, and the process is complete. The machine is also automatic – so it knows when to stop.
The machine can also be automated for continuous processes.
5. What are the Benefits of Using a Gun Barrel Polishing Machine?
There are undoubtedly different primary benefits of using gun barrel polishing machines over the manual method of surface refinement.
The first benefit of using a gun barrel polishing machine is its time to finish the process. The machine polishes your gun barrels rapidly.
The second benefit is the quality of finish that the machine offers. The machine offers you a clean and uniform finish – including the most intricate corners of your barrels.
No Prior Experience Required
The third benefit is that using these machines does not require prior experience. All you need to do is to read your owner’s manual. You can also ask Inovatec Machinery for advice on matters that you do not comprehend.
Saves You Money and Physical Energy
The fourth benefit is that using mass finishing machines saves you a lot of money and energy. It saves you money because it reduces the risk of you damaging your gun barrels when polishing manually.
Also, the machine is automatic – meaning it does not require manning as it polishes your barrels.
The machine is also not expensive to acquire, run, and maintain.
There are so many reasons why using a machine is more beneficial to you than manual polishing.
6. Which Machines are Ideal for Gun Barrel Polishing?
Two primary mass finishing machines are suitable for gun barrel polishing – as you read earlier on in this article.
The first machine is the trough vibratory polishing machine. It has a long rectangular finishing trough, which makes it ideal for polishing long gun barrels.
It works by vigorously shaking its polishing tub using its robust motor at a predetermined vibrating amplitude. When the trough shakes, the contents inside the tub (gun barrels, and polishing media) rub against each other’s surfaces.
This rubbing causes the barrels’ surfaces to be polished.
The second machine is the centrifugal barrel polishing machine. It is among the high-energy category of polishing machines.
It works by spinning its four finishing barrels at incredibly high speeds. These barrels are fixed on one flywheel, which also rotates. However, it rotates in the opposite direction from the four polishing barrels.
This design enhances the polishing process by making the machine utilize every ounce of the centrifugal force generated.
You can contact Inovatec Machinery today to place an order for your machine. You can choose the standard machine option or the customized machine option.
7. Which is the Ideal Mass Finishing Media for Polishing Gun Barrels?
Now, you first have to understand that different gun barrels are made using different materials. There are different types of polishing media that you can use to effectively and efficiently polish your gun barrels.
You can use different polishing media with varying abrasive strength for different gun barrel materials. For sensitive gun barrels like titanium, it would be best to use soft abrasives.
Apart from polishing, you can also use these abrasives for deburring, descaling, grinding, or even degrease your gun barrels.
8. What are the Different Types of Mass Polishing Media for Polishing Gun Barrels?
Inovatec Machinery offers a wide range of polishing abrasives for gun barrel polishing. It all depends on what gun barrel material you want to polish.
Check this out:
The first polishing abrasive that Inovatec Machinery provides is ceramic polishing media. It is highly aggressive and ideal for all sorts of cutting.
The second polishing media is plastic media – it is a soft polishing media that does not crack nor chip – even under immense pressure. They do not easily get damaged. Many mass finishing industries use it because of its polishing potential.
The third polishing media is porcelain media. It is a robust media but not as aggressive as the ceramic polishing media. You can use it to make your gun barrels shine.
All these polishing abrasives come in different shapes and sizes. You need to select the correct size and shape for the best results.
