I actually did a bit of testing on that CCM straight-rifled barrel. I put quite a few first strikes through it. I can confirm Bill's observation on his barrel being better than any of the smooth...

I don't think I have seen those. I am familiar with the real steel
angled risers. What do you incorporate into your design to match FSR ballistics?

Actually, my guess was exactly the same as DJMatt. When the reg and the IVG are out of balance, the gun operates very strangely. Other than that, I have never had those kinds of problems. I will...
