    It looks okay but I really don't know and I doubt anyone will ever know until someone is brave enough to buy it and find out.

    Here I am.

    OP: from what I (and Archer) could tell from the picture, is it seemed decently rough on the inside. Which isn't that good, but hey my human naked eye may be mistaken. I was going to order it today, but it was out of stock. :( I will be ordering one as soon as it is back in stock.

    As Marine said, I will do a thorough review on it after purchasing, measuring, installing, and using.

    You realize how hard it is to memorize your name? You can't even shorten it!

    I'd call him "Ornit" or "Orny" or "The O96meister"

    Lol. Go for it. :)

    But, we're getting off-topic.
    I'll be buying the 247mm length one, just incase you're wondering.

    The insides of the barrels are nicely polished. Lol. The crowns are deep and similar to prommy. The barrel windows are rough as hell. Lol. That's all I see you guys needing. They're not bad barrels.

    Some people over on ASM did. That's pretty much their exact words.

    Star_folder here! Woooo!

    Yeah, what I said in that ASM thread. They seem to be good barrels to me. The windows aren't polished, but the inside and the crown is. The front of the barrel isn't polished either, the small bit where the barrel was cut at the hop up side, it has the same sort of texture as the hop up window. Besides that, it's steel, no coating or anything like that. Performs as well as the prommy that was in the gun before the core went in. Definitely a good buy in my book, especially for a steel barrel.
