ok, i see these at walmart all the time, but pbreview doesnt have anything on it. has anyone used one?

edit: i found it under "Stryker" on pbreview. i guess thats a new BE/JT brand? my 2nd question still stands.

Ive been eye balling them for a while cause their light & no porting. Really think about picking one up.

They almost look like they have a CF sticker on them. Fo the sake of science somebody needs to waste $30 and hack one up.

There was a thread a while ago about it. It basically said that they were horrible and it wasn't real CF. They said that the inside of the barrel wasn't smooth and it was a complete waste of money. I don't remember where I saw the thread but if I find it I'll post it.

I would save the money and buy something else.

yeah, this isnt for me, but just a heads up for the new kids. i figured i would post this before someone goes "omg! cf barrel for $20!"

i've looked inside the barrel (through the packaging) and it doesnt seem to have the same pattern as the outside, but the front end looks like its been cut from a single tube of carbon fiber.

I'd stay away from it. they look pretty cheap to me. Save your $$ and get a nice multibore system

I really think it would be worth it......

If it turn out to be crap, I could cut the barrel on my Talon & melt the body & put it on there.... oh ya carbon fiber barreled talon!!!!

My cousin had one, it is very very loud and the inside is very rough, its a P.O.C

Terrible barrel.
