4. MISSION STATEMENT
At Ballistic Advantage we are committed to making the kind of barrels that delight the most demanding users. Men and women who expect—and some whose lives may at times depend on—a barrel that delivers round after round consistently, accurately, and with minimal recoil. True and reliable performance no matter how hot the action or how gritty the conditions.
We live at the corner of old-fashioned craftsmanship and state-of-the-art manufacturing; of practical know-how and material science. While our barrels rank among the best money can buy, our prices rank among the best value for money. Thanks to our unique, proprietary processes we own the sweet spot where superior quality meets affordability.
Innovation is in our genes. Our concepts are born in the crucible of real shooters: the hunter, the competitive marksman, the law officer, the warrior. We listen relentlessly to their needs…and their aspirations. Our designers translate their dreams into tangible expressions of elegance in form, fit, and feature. Our skilled operators take it from there, crafting the tools and programs that transform raw metal into instruments of precision.
