The Barrels on the Christian Hunter are machined from solid billets of 41-40 steel, and come in the owner’s choice of 26 in., 28 in., 30 in., or 32 in.
These barrels feature a TuffBore™ coating which makes them steel shot compatible, and they undergo the Cryo Pattern™ process which is a deep freezing method that relieves stress on the metal and allows for more accurate and consistent shot patterning. These traditional rust type blue barrels also come with a choice of ventilated top rib, solid top rib or ribless options. The barrels also have a weight system that allows an owner to change the balance of their own gun.
The barrels (under the forend) have the ability to accept our barrel weight system which allows you to easily change the dynamics of the gun by adding or subtracting the weights. The weight system includes 2 weights at 2¼oz. and 4 weights at ½oz. which gives many different combinations and is a feature on every gun. The lightest configuration is approximately 7 ½ lbs. for the 12 gauge frame and approximately 6 ½ lbs. for the 20 gauge small action frame.
Multi Chokes are standard and each pair of barrels comes with five, Trulock choke tubes: Skeet, Improved Cylinder, Modified, Improved Modified, and Full. All barrels and choke tubes are steel shot compatible and come with a choke tube key. However, you can choose to have a fixed choke gun to your own specification.
Same Action – Differed Gauge barrels
All our guns have the ability to come with a second set of barrels of a different gauge. Therefore, if you choose to have a 20 bore gun, you can have a pair of 28 or .410 bore barrels made for it. You can use the same forend and simply swap the barrels over without any gun smithing required. Optional barrel lengths, which are all compatible with the existing forend, include 26, 28, 30, and 32 inch.
- “I couldn't be happier with my Christian Hunter! I just finished 3 days driven shooting in the West Country, putting about 300 cartridges through each They handled like a dream! To add to that I also received a lot of compliments from the rest of the team about their looks”
- "Magnificent true scaled frame over and unders. I don't think a better gun can be had for any amount of money. The fit and finish of these guns have been beyond compare. This over and under is the only small frame, low profile, full side lock over and under that I currently shoot that has withstood the test of time in the field without a hitch." - R.H.
