Cut Barrel Rifling

Here is a fun video produced by the American Precision Museum in Vermont demonstrating how the rifling in gun barrels were once cut into barrels instead of formed as they are now.

The video is here if you can’t see it.

Actually, the museum itself which produced the video above looks pretty amazing; anyone of a technical/engineering mindset would certainly appreciate the exhibits they have for you to explore. Any fellow dorks who find themselves near the museum in Windsor VT should stop by.
