yeah, it's roughly $5 shipping per barrel for 5 barrels if my math was close.

Yeah, if they're definitely going to offer the LONG back, with a .681 or smaller bore (I'd love to see like a .679 & .682), and the CF front, I'd be willing to go in with others to order.

Avaiable in bore size 685, 687, 689.
In April we are going to have one more size: 683.
If distributors will interested smaller sizes, we will think about it.

Yes. Every front has a porting.

Meh, my interest just dropped.

3 bores all of which are overboring 90% of all paint is less than useless.

So then the largest they should make should be a .687

.681
.683
.685
.687

Seems like a pretty good kit.

Well, once these bad boys get stateside, there will clearly be dealer demand for smaller bores. Hell, pretty much everyone chiming in here wants a .681. So, I bet customer demand will make it happen.

Personally, I'm down with ordering a set with the 225mm long backs and the aluminum front.

The testing phase is finished. Barrels are ready. Today we sent some packages for teams want to play on our barrels. Next week we will send packages for customers in the USA, England, Portugal and France.

If you are asking about www ... barrels are now more important for us, than something like www.something.blablabla

If you got more questions ,I invite you to write PM.

Whoa. What happened to the super long control bores like the one you had in this pic:



Is that just a prototype? I thought the kits in the latest pics were supposed to have a 225mm control bore. The latest pics indicate that your production barrel sets are using the 160mm control bore.

Also, did your testing show any advantages or disadvantages between long and short control bores?

It looks to be a shorter bore comparable to maybe the TechT iFit length.

I would be interested in a barrel kit as well at a lower bore size. I'm pretty sure there's a market here for it.
.678
.681
.684
.687
.690

A 14" barrel with a ~9" control bore sounds fantastic.

Will these also be offered in gloss/polished?

Overall the barrels look so sweet. I'll be adding you on Facebook.

Go back 1 or 2 pages, they've got pics of the long bores. This was just new pics with the ultra-short bores.

Actually, I'll admit if there were small bores available I'd be willing to pick up both an ultra-short bore and a ultra-long bore. The ultra-short bore would be GREAT for those rare times I try to get my old body into the snake with how short it would make the overall setup.

Maybe some manufacturers don't know the differences between control bore and the length of the back, but we do.
haha very nice!

I also prefer the tip screwing over the back instead of inside.

weight of the barrel?

Paint varies everywhere. I have to shoot at least a .688 and then .692 in the summer. I wish I still had a .695 at times.
