The OMR Howage is now available for both Howa 1500s and Weatherby Vanguard Rifles. This barrel has no shoulder and is similar in design to the Savage Prefit barrel. It requires a barrel nut sold separately (add OMR barrel nut for $50) to lock the barrel down after installation on your action. It can be installed just like a Savage, however, a Savage Barrel Nut WILL NOT work on this barrel. This new barrel configuration can be used for both Howa 1500 or Weatherby Vanguard Rifles. Available in all calibers and barrel lengths from 18"- 28".  All of OMR's barrels have a magnum taper, which is 1” at the muzzle (Fits into all Sendero Contour stocks).  Threaded for brake.

All OMR carbon fiber blanks start with 416R Stainless, match grade, button rifled, hand lapped, stress relived  blank.  Every blank goes through our rigorous inspection process for tolerances, craftsmanship and material imperfections.  Match Grade bore must measure within .0005" of our standard diameter and groove cannot vary in diameter more than .0003" for the length of the barrel.  Once a blank passes this inspection, only then will it get carbon wrapped using the same state of the art materials and techniques that are employed in the Aerospace industry. We do all this to ensure You, our Customer the lightest, most accurate carbon fiber barrels available on the market today.

Easy to install:

  • Use a Savage style wrench for barrel nut
  • OMR recommends to torque our prefit barrels to 75-90ft/lbs.
  • Use caliber specific Go/NoGo gauges after tightening the barrel nut to ensure proper headspace.  Can be rented from
  • Once you have installed your new OMR barrel, it is recommended that you have the caliber engraved or stamped before use.  OMR does not do this prior to shipping, because we have no idea where your barrel will time out and properly headspace.
