They are hammer forged on mandrels which produce the outer exterior design. I believe hammer forged barrels are far more expensive to produce and it is commonly agreed they are a superior barrel performance wise. The process work hardens the steel also so will have a longer shooting life.
Of course there's no reason why a button drawn air rifle barrel won't be as accurate it's just produced by a much cheaper process!
