Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0890814A2] A gunbarrel is drawn, with rifling lands and grooves all the way round the periphery. The amount of missile guide-band material (9) displaced remains the same when the number of grooves (3) is increased, while the groove depth (6) and the twist angle (d) remain constant. To reduce the rate of band wear when the number of grooves is increased, the groove flanks (5) can be at right angles to be bottom (7). The flank angle(a) can be less then 9.5 degrees with a non-chromium-plated bore, and 0 degrees when this is partly or wholly chromium-plated. The radius (rZ) between the groove bottom and flank can be less than 0.5mm, and that between the flank and the land surface (rF) less than 0.3mm.
