So? Is the body made out of Carbon Fiber too? Or is it just a facade? Like Veneer on wood.

It doesn't actually say.
I made that double take as well. Full carbon would be pretty tough. There is a Shocker project on PBN that had given the very capable modder some issues.

My money is on a thin aluminum core that is wrapped. If it's not the real stuff, well, let's just say that it better be the real stuff.
Broken eNMEy neck? I can fix that. Want the can threaded, I can do that too. Click here!

The body has some sort of glossy/glass finish to it. I held one in Feb at the Extravaganza. It is slick looking, but I like the camo one better.

They had one of these at CPX this weekend. I was eyeballing it at legends but there was a huge line and I didnt feel like asking to hold it considering I didnt really wanna buy it. It did catch my eye right off the bat though.

I had one at the shop for a display for a week.
The body is a carbon fiber wrap not solid. The barrel is carbon fiber tho.
It looks great, shot just like a axe should.

Can't wait to get them on June 1st.

Once you buy it, just send the foregrip to OHG and have them carbon fiber it for you

I'm picturing cleaning the paint out from between the body and the barrel where all the new fancy milling is on the "super duper freak" back... Also wondering if that's porting on the aluminum bezel on the tip or just another place to clean paint out of?

I find myself underwhelmed... Doing a plain tube for a body and shoving a thin carbonfiber pipe around it would not be that much more expensive than hydrodipping and would let this thing live up to its namesake.
