the finish on the inside plays big factors, bore length and porting.


shadow kit looks great

Same goes for anything new coming out, and that applies to pretty much anything in life really. High end barrels should have finer honing. But it seems lately most barrels have good honing, so I'm skeptical if there are really any noticeable difference.

That's what I'm saying. When I had a UL, I didn't notice a better hone than my $25 CP one piece.

I definitely notice accuracy difference between barrels... But I was never impressed by UL's

Best barrel I've ever used is my old school stock matrix barrel circa 2001...

Anyone that has ever used it has tried to steal it from me... but they can pry it from my COLD DEAD HANDS!!

Honestly, I want someone to make me a .679 barrel with NO porting.. I don't care how loud it is, I want the best efficiency

I have a .678 eigenbarrel and it destroys paint here. I might try a .685 eigenbarrel in the future.

I loved my Eigenbarrel with the field paint here. Not sure what to expect now that they are using the "Echo" stuff. Have not gotten to try it yet, but my G3 with the CP barrel was barrel breaking like mad until the paint had been open a while and gotten warmed a little. Would not think that would matter much in Florida. Not like it was 60 degrees or lower here.
