I'll throw out a guess. Original glued All-Americans? (They couldn't be taken apart... but still two pieces, glued together.)

I don't know. Curious question.

Depends on what you mean by "two-piece", I would say.

A Splatty has a two piece barrel, so do some Nelspots and 3357's and even early Tippmanns.

Otherwise, Brewtt makes a good guess. I am aware that J&J was early out of the gate with a two piece barrel.

I am going to hedge my bet though and say that the first two stage barrel was made for a Nelspot chassis.

Texas Airguns?

Do not forget all the brass lined barrels that proceed anything SP did.

Ah yes... I knew there were more. What were some of those brass lined ones?

All the Montneels were brass lined. Lots of the guns in the 90s that ran liquid came with brass lined barrels. The early Sterlings had brass lined barrels too.

The MegaZ in 1993 had a 3-pc barrel: Brass lined, Stainless "back", and aluminium "front".

Some trivia: The original Smart Parts "rifled" barrels were 1-pc. They switched to the 2-pc version because IT WAS CHEAPER to produce. The "rifled" piece could be made from pipe stock, with only the back being machined billet.
