Whilst searching for a bit of information I came across this snippet:-
Notice this bit:-Armalon Hammer Forged Barrels
Armalon Limited, incorporating its predecessor "Practisport", embraces almost a quarter century in business as UK Registered Firearms Dealers specialising in the design, manufacture and custom gunsmithing of top quality firearms, particularly rifles, pistols and revolvers.The company is finalising an expansion programme that will add to their existing largely CNC based production facilities, the complete barrel making plant previously owned and operated by Parker-Hale Limited. Also on hand are the key production personnel who successfully operated that plant. Over the years Parker-Hale produced a wide range of superb barrels, not only with the 1200TX and other target rifles but also their M82 and M85 Sniper rifles, the UK MoD’s L82A1 and L82A2 Cadet target rifles, and their full choice of reproduction muzzle loading classics. The range also included a host of other types from their airguns to the .22 semi-autos. In addition many barrels were produced on contract for other discerning end-users demanding top quality such as for the German Blaser rifles.

Seems you learn something new everyday. One wonders if this is indeed the case where Blaser went shopping for their barrels after Parker-Hale closed?
