not the same factory, we make our barrels!

a french company tried to copy our barrel and he was hit with a cease and desist and discontinued the line, this dirtbag in china continually tries to move the stock he is left with. honestly i have never seen this barrel in person, i have seen detailed pics and i dont know if its compatable with our threads. quality apparently is very average.

Lol was waiting for you to see this James. It always comes down to Quality. Really is a guy in china really going to put the same effort as the Macdev team to make these?

Think about it people, 'you get what you pay for'. Pay for a knock off and lack quality. Pay for Quality and not only will it pay off in long run, but your supporting Macdev so they can come up with more things for the paintball community in the future!

This knock off can not be compared to Macdev's craftsmanship

Chinese machining has never known to be of great quality . I personally filter my results for only combing from north America for eBay

It's shady fer sure. Also the bore sizes are rather large. It's too bad that MacDev can't slap an order on this tool copying their product.
