Spiral ported Dye barrel

I pride myself in knowing a lot about Dye barrels but this one has me stumped.

Details:

12"
raw aluminum (I thought it was stainless)
strait .689 bore
spiral ported
has the middle dye logo (not the newest one but it is engraved and not lasered)
cocker threaded
no muzzle break

Someone suggested a Carter prototype but is there anyone that can confirm this or should I try calling someone?

thanks

if its a one piece, then i would assume that it was a prototype. probably never went into production cause SP had a patent or a suit threating that the spiral porting was a trademark. talk to Dye or Earon about it. cool though. first glance i looks like a All A's front on a UL back.

It's a one piece

How can I get a hold of Earon?

thanks

I've for sure never seen one like that. A carter/dye relic seems the most likely explanation. Weren't almost all the early single piece ones stainless steel?

Yep. Aluminums were more popular b/c they were cheaper. The pricing around '99 went something like this (going off of memory here):
Dye Aluminum: $85
Dye Stainless: $105
Dye Boomstick: $125

I'm talking before 99 here. The first ones I ever saw were stainless with no actual branding. I could be crazy though. Maybe the stainless was just the more popular model 'round here.

Just wondering, is the barrel beveled on the threaded side, like some other carter barrels.

the inside of the threaded end (where the ball would go in from) is slightly beveled if that's what you mean

who should I try and talk to at DYE and does Earon Carter have a username that I can pm or can I call the number on his website?
