I think it's might be from BOA, Barrels of America.
they make their barrels out of brass and some are SS

What's your thought on it? Is it quiet to you? are there rifling?
Thanks.

its heavy. alot heavier than any other barrels i've played with. definitely not alluminum. someone asked me if it was a palmer barrel and i said i didnt know. that is why i came here, maybe glen can distinguish one of his own barrels.

its been so long since i've played. probably months. just too cold. i cant even imagine in my head the noise. i know its more quiet than a 98C or stock XTRA. but then again its a low pressure marker vs. the high pressure stuff. i really hope it is because that would be very cool. i've had this barrel for about 3 years now, and it is in very nice condition. at my local proshop they had it labeled as a raptor or razor, i think. next time i go i will ask them. they still have one on for $80.

Looks like a nickel plated brass BOA Express.

$25-35 depending on the market. BOA's are great barrels.
