    Not a clue. But I was wondering if the bore is carbon fiber or does it have a steel sleeve for a bore? I never seen one up close and personal.

    Clean em just like a regular barrel. They have a rifled metal tube inside, just like a regular barrel only not nearly as thick. The carbon fiber gives the barrel tha additional support that it needs.

    whats up with the carbon fibre craze?
    Under the heat and stress of being on a gun they will yellow like an uncoated car hood. and I know they don't polycoat that fibre like a good fibre hood. I dunno just seems a little silly to me *shrugs*
