I heard Rock Slide still has one, but it is locked away in his vault and never comes out.

Yeah, RS has one, shorty has one of the older models as well. He uses it on his plethera of .68carbines.
It's a really nice barrel, I've had the chance to use it. He let me use it for a bit at the "Path of Disaster" game back in '02

Why can't I find any pics of it anywhere?

Why aren't they selling this excellent barrel no matter how much it costs!?

^^^What are you talking about Carl? The SC barrel was flat out amazing. It was the only straight barrel that could actually be used to implement sniping maneuvers and still have a length of under 12". It's superior range and accuracy and quietness were unmatched, even by the Flatline and Apex. We say you can't snipe nowadays, because no one has the SC barrel.

The reason you can't find pics, is because in at around 5 were made, specifically for those who had, uh, "connections" with Big Al. Unfortunately, he's no longer around, so no more will ever be seen. If you were to find one, the price would probably be well above that of a new Angel and then some.

Big Al is dead or what happened.  Does anyone know how it was made?  I'm sure someone must and then why don't they make it.  It would bring paintball to a whole new level.

The limited number of Super Chromium barrels were made by hand by Dash of Air-Tipps. He's out of Los Alamos, NM.  Dash is a machinest that works for the government there. He'd take some of the "special material" scrap from his job and make paintball stuff with it.  The Super Chromium barrel one one such invention that was amazing.

Dash also made my 68-Carbine (the Weed) run low pressure.  I could shoot a case of paint on one 20oz. tank of Co2.

I'll have to dig mine out and post a picture of it.  It sits in my SL68-II. Talk about a nail driver...

^yes this is great info but it still doesn't explain why there aren't being anymore made. 

This guy should start a business because he seems to know a good amount about make quality paintball stuff, or if he has the barrel patented then he could even get hired by a company like dye to make it and other stuff for them; or he could just simply tell Dye or any other pb company) how to make the barrel and get paid royalties for every single barrel that is made until his grand kids' grand kids are dead - or at least until someone else can make a better barrel.

So why aren't there any more being made, by anyone, someone other than Big Al (as some say), or Dash (as Rock Slide calls him) must know how to make it? So why aren't they?!!

Plus how did you get one?

And yes I'd love to see a picture.

If it is really ball on ball all the time, it could be selling for over 1K and I know that all paintball teams would be buying it and I would even buy it myself after I'm in my career and making money.  Right now I'm in school so I have bills to pay but I would later on, and I think so would many hardcore paintballers.

Anyone know if someone has plans on coming back out with it in the near future?

After intensive searching, I found a locked thread about this barrel.  And this info:

[QUOTE=cdacda13]

Dude, if and when you become platty, the Admin either PMs you, or you PM him. From there, the Admin takes over and tells you when and where to send the money, and when the barrel will get to your house.

If you don't accept it then, your chance is gone. You only get one chance.

I thought like you when I was a regular member, then I become a platty one day(on a glitch) but the admin didn't know that, he PM'd me with the info, and I got mine. Best thing that has ever happened to me.

[/QUOTE]

[QUOTE=DBibeau855]

Yeah you just send the money through the mail, then you get your barrel shortly after. From what i hear this barrel is almost godlike, shoots really tight groops and farther than a flatline.

[/QUOTE]

It supposedly costs $711!?!

I really want one
!!  Is all of this true?  Especially the part about having a chance to get one once I become a platinum member?

Ah, the Super Chromium. "When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

Sorry, it's not true. When Tippmann upgraded the forum software the last time they switched the star status to being based just on post count. So that was the end of the tradition. (Platinum membership had previously been invitation only)

I read all 23 pages and I still haven't figured out whether it is real or not.

I want one badly.

I would perform special favors in Big Al's Tent to get it!!
