Dash doesn't make them anymore and has gotten out of the paintball business.  The reason there were a limited number is the material they were made from.  You have to understand... He worked at LOS ALAMOS...  Where they make things that go BANG!

BIG BANG!

Lots of exotic materials around that I don't think Dye could afford.  Dash made a few, gave them out as gifts, and didn't make any more.

I bring annihilation

and cheap red wine!

The SL68-II.  You might be able to see "SUPER" in small print at the end of the barrel.

One side of the barrel...

The other side of the barrel

Quote from: JediJak

straight from the chemistry book: "Chromium is a steel-gray, lustrous, hard metal that takes a high polish, melts with difficulty, and tarnishes."
"Chromium is unstable in oxygen"

if it tarnishes it would be one of the worst things for making a barrel with because that would mean that it would be chemicaly unsound and easly messed up.

And the crap about it being rare:
"Approximately 15 million tons of marketable chromite ore were produced in 2000"

I knew it was real, I wanted to believe all along.  But now I want one soooooo badly.

If I become platinum and spend the night in big al's tent could I get one?  What if I became a mod?

I heard Enos and Rambino both have one.

Guys tell me about this baby.

Rock Slide thanks for showing me the pic but I didn't think you were allowed to.  Won't big Al get mad?

How many inches is yours?

I have two words for you: Chromium alloy.

One of the "mystery" alloy ingredients is rare, and thus so is the barrel.

The reason they are rare is that Dash only made a few.  These are homemade barrels.

Rock Slide do you know if he would ever make any more, or is still making any more?

If I become a platnium member, could I have a chance at getting one? How about if I became a mod at one point in my life? (yes I know it would take a while)

Is there any hope for me whatsoever, can I even dream about it?

Air Tipps went out of business years ago. If the company that made them went out of business, how are they going to make more. Use some common sense.

I heard it was made by big Big Al, so maybe if I slept in his tent???

But then I read:

Quote from Zesty:

"Alright, first of all, no BigAl didn't not make it, the producer/manufacturer of the Super Chromium is unknown....secodnly, just because it is called the Super Chromium does not mean it is made solely from Chromium!

I'm pretty sure it is some hybrid alloy.

For those saying it's fake: I must be fake then as well, because I was offered to go through the "ritual" to be able to purchase the barrel.

The barrel is as real as you and I."

_______

I also read somewere it was made by a company called Nush wait now that isn't the name I can't remember it... it was four letter name crap...?

I also found: "It was dealed with in Area 51 and includes stolen military technology."

And now you say it was Air Tipps!>>?

___________

Anyway I read there were only 5 Super Chromnium 2000 barrels which were the best in the world but I heard there were copies made which were almost as good.  I don't mind if I don't get the Super Chromnium 2000 I can live with a Super Chromnium (copy).

So does anyone know:

If I become a platnium member, could I have a chance at getting one? How about if I became a mod at one point in my life? (yes I know it would take a while)

Is there any hope for me whatsoever, can I even dream about it?

Whoever it may be from, big al or whoever? Could I dream of getting one?

At the rate you are going phil, I doubt you would even be given the chance to have one.

WOW....I did not think this would bring up such a conversation...I was just reminiscing about conversations, jokes, and good times from the past. Phil, even if you go through the ritual, I do not think you will get one. I have been here since before the forum even had a star rating for it's members, back on the old forum. Well I still haven't got a super chromium nor do I need one...the next best thing is a Palmer brass barrel (God like accuracy) or an old Dye Stainless (nearly as good as Palmer brass) and I mean the old dye stainless, the one piece barrel, not that imitaion two piece boomstick.

ahhh yes, the old days, back when "mother" meant something.

The reason so much gets attributed to Big Al on the Super Chromium threads is that a few of the OMHW guys got the barrels (see RS for example) The ONLY way you got become a full fledged member of the OMHW (unless you were a charter member) was to go through the initiation with Big Al. The last person I physically saw after an initiation was Timmy B. Handsome kid, too bad he'll never be the same after what Al did to him. Fran begged Al to go easy on him, as he is a bit fragile when compared to the bulk of Al, but it wasn't to be. I don't think anyone in Anne Arundal County MD slept well that night.
