Brock and Norris hand select the barrel blanks from some of the most well respected manufactures in the industry. Both select match stainless and match-grade Chrome-moly barrels can be fitted. All work is completed in house except barrel fluting, this is carried out during the manufacturing stage to ensure that the barrels can be fully stress relieved after fluting.
We at Brock and Norris have a close working relationship with two of Europe's barrel makers, Border Barrels and Loather Walther who over the years has supplied us with some of the most accurate barrels on the market.
In addition we are also able to supply barrels from Shilen Lilja, Bartlein, Krieger and Hart.
A good selection of barrel lengths are available from 16" to 32", barrel lengths over 28" carry a surcharge of £15 per inch.
We are able to provide twist rates from 1 : 6.5 through to 1 : 18 dependant on the bullet weight and intended purpose of the rifle.
At Brock and Norris we carry a good selection of popular barrel blanks on the shelf to enable us to provide a quick and efficient turnaround time.
Match grade barrels require action to perfect alignment to ensure maximum performance from that rifle, both considerable time and effort are out into the set up to ensure that the barrel and receiver and in as near perfect alignment and fitting. Throughout the initial fitting process the machines and gauges are checked repeatedly to keep the tightest of tolerances.
We at Brock & Norris continually strive for perfection in all the work we do so it was only fair that we choose the best reamers on the market. The decision to build the best meant that we should source the best, and to that end many years ago Manson Precision Reamers were chosen to supply us.

Brock and Norris are able to offer the customer a number of differing finishes dependant on the type of barrel. For the Chrome-moly barrels we are able to offer a traditional English hand polished blued finish. Stainless barrels can be finished in a high polished metal finish or a hunters grey, bead blasted matte finish.
All fitted barrels to custom rifles are guaranteed to shoot half inch or less, with the correct hand loaded ammunition. if they don't the rifle will not leave the workshop. With the precision systems we use the accuracy of are rifles is often of an extremely high standard and most of the rifles we build shoot to 1/2 inch consistently under normal field conditions. It is worth noting however that the staff a Brock & Norris shoot on daily basis to a very high level.
We will not rechamber factory barrels. Give accuracy guaranties for barrels not supplied by ourselves or carry out accuracy work on old military actions.
