Videos: Broach Rifling

In our last post, we looked at some videos about cut rifling, a process we'd studied many months ago. In today's post, we will study another method of cutting rifling which we'd also studied back in May 2010. Today, we will look at a video that demonstrates broach rifling. The purpose of this series of posts is to add movies to the description of the processes, so that the reader can get an idea of how things work.

If you've not already read the description of the process of broach rifling, here's a link to that article again: Rifling: Manufacturing: Broach Rifling.

Now that you've read about the process, let's look at a movie demonstrating the process in action:

This video comes to us from a company called Miles Broaching, a manufacturer of broaching tools for several applications. In the above video, they demonstrate using a broaching tool to produce rifling for a handgun barrel. As you can see, the process happens pretty quickly, much faster than the cut rifling process we studied in the previous post.
