| | barrel material ideas- limited luxury kits
i figure anyone can make a barrel with access to a machine shop and a bunch of cash from pre orders
7-8 inch control bore, testing will decide what length.
i already have allot of it worked out BUT i need to know exactly what material to use for the control bore, which will be a sleeve, most likely not interchangeable
high carbon steel
looking for something as light as possible so that leads me to titanium BUT i have heard that very high quality steel has a better finish (honing) to it, also some people have thrown brass into the mix as a good material to use
benefits of each? would 1/20 of an inch be thick enough? I will be using a custom made outer sleeve of a very hard material so strength i think i have under control
