The better finishing on the inner bore was silly IMHO, because after I had a few cases through it, it was smooth as glass. This may be what you have. Does yours have spiral porting?
I found it. It was originally called the "Whisper"

Yes, it does have spiral porting. That was another thing I noticed compared to the Fiburs in the add seen all over the net. Yet a simple google picture search showed some with spiral porting, so I brushed it off as a clue.
I'll check out that vid, thanks!
