I know this could be met with consternation, but it's the truth.
Apparently you can see something I cannot. With my lurker I can attest that at least anything visual would be hard to pick up, and I have seen barrels that have defects that could be picked up by the naked eye.
Also, explain how lurker's quality is any worse than what is probably the most popular barrel, the Freak Kit. Freak inserts were well known to not have any consistency with bore size (until the SS ones improved this issue). I would imagine boom sticks have a pretty decent quality, but earlier models had too large of a bore, weighed too much, and cost too much to be considered a reasonable barrel. The cost of newer newer models don't really justify their improvements.
And please explain what you mean by your experience. Have you had numerous lurker barrels?
I am not trying to start an argument, but just trying to get an explanation of what you mean, because you and I have had very different experiences with the same product.
