    is that carbon wrapped?
     
  3. Wow. I don't see how they're going to take 2-4 lbs off the weight of the barrel. My 24" Grendel barrel weighs 3.4 pounds. There wouldn't be anything left if they took as much weight off as they claim.
     
  4. That's my guess. Since they offer a service for "your blank" I'm guessing they machine it down, then apply the carbon to it.

    I was asking around about them, and it seems that most people who owned one, don't own another.

    Actually, Glen Seekins just outright told me that they were shit, and that he sold his because it sucked. lol. I believe the term "expensive tomato stake" was used at one point.

    And Google ABS, they aren't known for their CS. I'd make sure that they have one in stock if you were ordering. Likely be ahead in the end if you just dropped a contour, or fluted the fuck outta the existing tube.
