Triangle? Do you mean triangular profile? I'd like to know myself! Wouldn't that effect the harmonics of the barrell? LOL Like I know anything about that sort of thing!

I know I did extensive searching on barrels for my 10/22 and I never saw a triangular or even square barrel. I did see a nice looking octangular barrel in aluminum.

Clark makes a fluted barrel that looks like a triangle, one of the best 10/22 barrels, or 10/22 mag/17 hmr barrels

Talking Oh Yeah!

Triangles are the strongest geometric shape.
Using this shape in a gun barrel will no doubt improve its rigidity.

I have seen a picture of a Barrett (50 BMG sniper rifle) that was close to a triange when the unusual fluting was machined.

Truth.

Soooo.....your information comes from where? And/or will you define "strongest."

Thank you, Dave

As structural supports, they certainly are. Unfortunately, barrels aren't structural supports.

The only way you'll get the rigidity the triangle would provide to a barrel is to have the axial length of the barrel parallel and in the same direction to the side of a triangle. (As opposed to the barrel perpendicular to the side as it would be if the barrel had a cross-sectional profile of a triangle.)

I stand Corrected

The triangle in the profile of a gun barrel may be an easier means to reduce weight, but maintain adequate integrity that is required for a gun barrel.

I have seen a small balsa wood "prisim" that was 4.0" x 4.0" withstand 660lbs of crush pressure before failure.
The balsa wood "prisim" weighed 35grams as I recall.
And was bonded together with simple Elmer's glue.
