I have one of the straight """rifled""" barrels I accidentally bought from mcs,
Not only is it a major pain in the *** to clean, it also looses a ton of efficiency, and also still has a few bad shots after a break before it clears it properly, not great

you had me at "grooves to expel debris." With that kind of logic, what else could go wrong?

Another gimmick barrel from the biggest pushers of gimmick barrels lol

This looks to me like a manufacturing cost saving method trying to be marketed as a feature.

The ridges are probably raw extrusion with only minimal turning done to the ID to get the bore close. You can see the inside has not been honed from the pictures I have seen have that rainbow cd kinda effect in the barrel. This the sign of a fine turned finish but no secondary honing. With the right fixture the barrel can be indexed such that the porting is in the grooves. This again reduces the need for secondary operations such as honing and deburring all of the holes.

Bringing this back from the brink. I'm not sure that he could have missed from this distance, but it does look like it clears out pretty quick and minimizes further breaks.

Seems to do what is advertised. Good luck to them.

i definitely believe it will get trapped in the grooves. expulsion is another story.

this is for the "underbore" guys i think

ya know the ones that think that having the back so tight that you need a swab to force it through.. the ones where it blows up every 20th shot or so

Every test I've seen with this is only testing the tip. Sure it clears out, but so does a regular barrel when it's only the tip. Most breaks are actually at the back of the barrel, at the breech. I'd love to see this barrel tested with a real breech break, but none of the tests I've seen have done that. Probably for a reason. All I know is that every time I've ever had a break with a freak kit, it's been game over for accuracy until I get a chance to remove the barrel and completely swab it out using water.

The only way this might work for real world breaks is in a one piece barrel with the grooves going all the way back to the threads. But then your efficiency would go to crap.

I was thinking the same thing.

To be fair to the Freak, with a tight bore fit, I've been able to shoot it clean in twenty rounds or so. I only had two breach-end barrel breaks the last time I played, however. I'm paying more for better paint next time.:rolleyes:
