Is this a Planet Eclipse Barrel, or Chinese knockoff??

Thoughts from the peanut gallery?

Looks like a knock off. No PE markings or mention of it.

Looks like an 06 or there abouts, the decal just appears to have fallen out.

SL66/Ego 7/Etek 2/Ego 8 barrel without the decal, as you said.

Looks like it's the stock barrel for a fern Ego 8.

But the listing says it's new and 9 available.

Usually if it's a used barrel with decals off, it's a single item, used condition.

Yeah, I wouldn't put too much faith in the seller claiming "new" - it looks like there is something in the threads, dirt maybe?

I can also see some milling marks on the barrel back. Not like PE barrels. I think it's a PE.

I popped my jewel off of my Etek2s barrel and there were some milling marks. I might be replacing the jewels soon, like in a couple days soon, so I might take a picture when I get a new phone.

That is what I thought first too. Until I looked at the Fern Ego8 I sold closely. It was Gray and Green. This barrel is black and green.

It's not a knockoff. It's an 08 fern tip with a black back missing the Eclipse jewels.

I have a black/green '08 Ego and that looks just like the stock shaft for it.

*Facepalms so ****ing hard like you would not believe*

The barrel in question is a Shaft TWO, the one in that link is a shaft FOUR. There are MAJOR differences between the two.

Ask the eBay seller. I believe he was the guy selling a CP style asa without decals. I asked him and he told me they were not genuine CP Asa's. (I believe it was the same seller.)

He posts on PBnation too under the same name.

I'm pointing out that the same company is apparently ripping off PE by using their logo, or has stolen a photo from somewhere else. I do realize that they are not the same barrel.
