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.
