scallop gun

Prev Next Zoom 1 of 1
1. n. [Perforating]
A perforating gun with a recess profile in the perforating gun body adjacent to the shaped charge. The scallop profile reduces the external burrs created as the perforating jet exits the gun body, thereby reducing the risk of hang-up or damage as the gun assembly is retrieved.
