Initial batches will be experimental, then I will explore other options or share my intellectual property.
I have a copyright on the nozzle designs, but you are welcome to improve upon the cooler idea if you wish.
Use a cooler because an overheated barrel reduces accuracy, increases pressure and throat erosion.

Less frequently asked questions about the Chamber Chiller barrel cooler
Q: Will Chamber Chiller’s fan nozzle scratch my chamber?
A: No it will not, as the entire product is made of hard plastic designed not to blemish rifle finishes.
Q: Aren’t you worried that the plastic nozzle will melt or deform in my chamber?
A: No, I’m not. The nozzle only touches the entry edge of the chamber, which is typically much cooler.
Q: Why don’t you include batteries with each shipment?
A: To reduce shipping weight, primarily. If it helps, Amazon sells 48-pack AAA batteries for $10 http://amzn.to/2tUeB74 or 48-pack of AA batteries for $10 http://amzn.to/2tXJvLl
Q: Are there any known issues with certain batteries?
A: Users have reported problems when using Duracell Quantum batteries, and lithium or enhanced cells.
Q: How long will it take to cool my barrel?
A: Chamber Chiller typically cools the barrel more than twice as fast as without any additional cooling.
Q: Is there any way to make Chamber Chiller cool the barrel even faster?
A: Yes. Using Chamber Chiller in an air-conditioned space can accelerate the cooling-down process.
Q: How long do the batteries last?
A: OMEGA-50 lasted more than three hours of continuous-on use, or nearly five hours with 15-minute use.
Q: Can I purchase Chamber Chiller in retail stores or at gun shows?
A: We are currently building dealer relationships for Chamber Chiller.
Q: Do you offer coupon codes that will get me a discounted price?
A: Promotional coupon codes are occasionally offered for special events or gun club purchases.
Q: Why do you accept payment through PayPal, aren’t they anti-gun?
A: PayPal prohibits firearm sales with their service because of screening requirements. I’m only selling fans.
Q: Will you ship Chamber Chiller to a destination outside the USA?
A: No. Firearm accessories cannot be exported outside the USA, and shipping is also cost prohibitive.
Q: Is there any difference between your early samples and later versions?
A: The epoxy and glue have changed many times. Samples after June 2017 use higher quality components.
Q: I purchased a Chamber Chiller prototype, but it doesn’t fit right. Will you help?
A: Yes! Please contact me, and I’ll work with you to update the design to remedy any fitment issues.
