Jarrett’s Tri-Lock receiver
revolutionized long range rifle reliability.


The Jarrett Tri-Lock receiver is the result of our self-imposed pursuit of the highest accuracy and dependability standards. Creating it in-house was the only way we could truly control the quality and firing results of every rifle we made. The receiver had to be better than anything available and more user friendly. With the help of Mike Irwin, a very talented young man, we spent a year and a half perfecting our action until it was flawlessly dependable.

The Tri-Lock, including the receiver body, is made of the toughest space age steel, 15-5 stainless. The action has no stamping, broaching, or welding anywhere, thus its machining by state-of-the-art CNC and EDM equipment leaves the Tri-Lock stress and distortion free.

Jarrett’s innovative Tri-Lock has three lugs instead of two, creating 50% more sectional area. The cartridges are unilaterally supported at three points rather than two. For true in-line precise feeding, the bolt lugs interlock with the rails. The Tri-Lock’s interchangeable feed rails (the only ones in the industry) interface with the in-line feeding system. A bolt bushing adds to the Tri-Lock’s concentric alignment and seals the action during firing. These features translate into super quick lock time, minimizing aim drift during firing. The bolt throw is a lightning fast 60 degrees! For those with big hands, this creates greater clearance between bolt and scope, a definite asset. The Tri-Lock is now available in either short action, standard or magnum bolt face, right or left hand configuration.

For other hunting needs, you’ll also find a semi-integral recoil lug for switch barrel capabilities.

Jarrett Rifle Barrels

Jarrett Barrels

In the 1980’s, during his quest for the ultimate in hunting rifle accuracy, Kenny Jarrett discovered that 27% of the high quality barrels he was buying would not shoot to his standard of sub one minute. These barrels were well built to the bench rest standard of the day, which required a bore diameter with a consistency of 3/10ths of a thousandth from the breech to the muzzle. Kenny determined that to achieve 1/2 M.O.A. performance, a barrel must have a deviation of no more than 1/10th of a thousandth. No one manufactured a barrel with that standard, so Jarrett began its proprietary barrel program. Each barrel receives 1100 hand lapped strokes to achieve the 1/10th of a thousandth deviation, assuring performance that has set a new industry standard.
