I think it is a a DAC, i've been told a few tiems thats what these are. the problem with DAC is they made barrels under a few differnt names, so it may be possible everyones right.

I had a DAC barrel that looked *exactly* like that for a 'mag, but it had porting.

DAC imported for a few people. Bob Long I know, and I've heard NPS or NW or someone rebranded them, as well as a couple smaller companies.

The point is, my hearsay is most DAC barrels found stateside were actually imported and rebranded. Sort of a store brand. So even if it *is* an AKA barrel, for example, it's quite likely that they simply bought them wholesale, engraved a different name if they felt like it, and said they made it.

Considering I've seen a few barrels that shape, and every one of them has a different porting pattern, my thoughts are that DAC shipped them across the pond unported, and the selling companies (or contracted machine shops) added the porting to differentiate them from everyone else's sextoy barrel.

TASO perhaps? Or did they label theirs?

Perhaps, but from what I've heard Taso also flared the *inside* of the barrel, for some reason. That's secondhand info, though.

I'm guessing not *excactly* like that since the spiral ported DAC's didn't come with porting in the tulip part. I've had plenty of DAC barrels and they were fairly common in europe in 95-98 (if I recall correctly). DAC made the early bob long Longshots and a 1 piece AA lookalike (not a glued 2 piece).

Well, no. not *exactly*, but the shape was the same. Just differently placed holes.
