I know that one of the mods (who shall remain nameless) tried to sell the barrel once when he hit hard times.

Hasn't been heard from since. Supposedly the people who developed it were paid by the government, and the so-called 'secret ingredient' is rare enough that they're hunting down all the old samples to keep them out of civilian hands. Including, unfortunately, the barrels.

And no, I never got the invitation because I'm not a 'real' platinum member.. and I don't know if I would have been anyway. If I ever do get the offer for one, I'll let you guys know if I'm able.
Is God real? You'll find out when you die.

Okay, I don't have a clever signature zinger. So sue me.

There is only one 'Unacounted Super Chromium Barrel' And that was in in a Tippmann F/A that was lost in the swamp. According to accounts it was lost inbetween the S bend on the road just past the Pentgon where you can see across the Swamp to the Tippmann Castle.

I tried to look for it once durring a Tippmann Challenge but Dave wouldnt let us bring in Scuba Equipment from his shop nor the metal detectors. Word has it he has been in the Off Season diving for to trying to recover it.

I almost had one, but I didnt have the cash. I have been kicking myself in the rear for years now.

They are not only for phantoms. Palmer makes there barrels in just about all the threads there are. Cocker, a-5, 98c, spyder, ion, phantom, impulse, etc. The only thread they don't make I think is Sterling threads because it is a metric thread. You get the barrels ported, or no ported; powedercoated in about just any color or nickel plated with either a satin or polished finish; If it is for a closed bolt gun like a cocker, blazer, omen, they will put wedgits in the barrel to prevent rollouts. Palmers does it all with their barrels basically. The A5OG guys love them on their guns.

Ha, now we really know what happened to KRL. (I thought all of those "I'm leaving" and "forum double standard" posts sounded like nonsense.)

Okay, will someone tell me what I've done wrong????

________________

You regulars are saying in your forum that is barrel is "made up" and way over hyped. 

But the myth that it doesn't exist has come to the surface (finally) - we have pictures.  But why do some still say it isn't real or it isn't that good.

Okay maybe I'm gullible but I do want the best barrel in the world, and I'm very curious about this and I won't give up until I find out the truth... although it seams like it's something that will be hard to get.

Thanks

Yes well I have read the Regulars forum and I see what you guys are saying but why are you saying it? 

http://www.tippmann.com/forum/wwf77a/forum_posts.asp?TID=162 311&PN=1

But think about this: Snake6 and others used to say in threads from 2005 that the Chrominum barrel itself wasn't real. 

http://www.tippmann.com/forum/wwf77a/forum_posts.asp?TID=138 360&PN=1&TPN=5

Now he and most others that said it was fake will admit it is real (probably because of the pictures) but now you regulars are coming up with theories about how doesn't worklike it was said it was supposed to.

It would be nice if anyone could elaborate on this and also as carl_the_sniper said: "can someone explain big al? the tent?"

Thanks
