You are frightening me, really you are.


a) If you separate the barrel pieces on your own, you will void the barrel's warrenty.

b) If you are intent on separating the pieces, no burning is needed. The two pieces are held together with grooves filled with epoxy.

c) The glued barrel is the older version. While it doesn't have an advantage over the screw together per se, since you can't take it apart and put it back together all the time, it doesn't have parts (such a threads) wearing out over time.


Later,
B.

What I meant by burning, was to heat up the 2 part epoxy that you mentioned. That way you can easily slip the two pieces aprt. We use Mapp gas because it burns much hotter than propane, so that you may fix the barrel a lil faster and easier.

Warranty, shmarranty...it's a barrel for crying out loud! Any pro shop can reglue a barrel including mine, done it many a times.

I am happy to say that almost all of em were DYE barrels.
