They were indeed made for cockers. I had one a while back, which I unfortunately sold off with a gun. Great barrels.

Yes, with an Eagle Works jewel sticker on it.

IIRC, the Eagle Works Jacko barrels were part of the fallout of the deal for Brass Eagle to distribute the Angel.

I dont know about the distribein deal but the "whisper" barrel looked alot differen when side by side, and the quality wasn't near that of a Jacko. It was a alright barrel. I personally think it was made by the same people that make the 32 degres stuff (jewels were in the same place and size at one time). The rainmaker could have the redheaded stepchild though, and received a jacko.
I never did see a working rain maker.

Eagle work barrels suck ***. They have an extremly large bore. And for some reason only worked good if you cut them down behind the porting.

The Rainmaker barrels were in fact Jacko barrels.

It dates back to the fact that Brass Eagle was originally the US distributor for the WDP Angel.

But the deal fell apart for a couple reasons. (WDP objected to Brass Eagle renaming the gun the Brass Eagle Angel. BE objected to the high price).

WDP was the one to back out, so to "buy out" there contract, they provided BE with a ton of Jacko barrels.

I liked them, though they were nothing special.

As a side note, they also made Infinity barrels for the Automag.
