    hey, guys.

    was in the gunshop today in mcs, and on the display case were match, ramped bull barells in 3 lengths, standard, commander and officers. they looked pretty well made.

    the sales girl said they are made in korea, they were branded "Ironsides" or something.

    they cost about less than half a BarSto or Schuemann barrel.

    anyone encountered these barrels before?

    i'm wondering if they're any good.

    thanks, guys.

    Hmmmm? I know for a fact that Korean and Brazilian ordnance steel are one of the best in the market today. But instead of answering your questions I might throw in some more. Are the barrels stainless steel or steel alloy. If it is the later, is it chrome lined? Are those barrels "two" piece or bar stock single piece? What kind of ramp? what calibers? Lastly, magkano kabayan? interesado kasi ako. Salamat po.;)

    Yup i also want to read feedbacks on these slides and barrels of ironsides. I saw them at Twin Pines. Slides are about 14k and barrels at 7k.

    Tried to check them out, but they would require your existing F/A license for the particular caliber you'll be buying. Also, they said that the barrels WILL BE LICENSE to you as F/A ID card will be issued by Crame; -- that could mean that you'll have to pay the renewal fees every two years.

    Can anyone verify this...

    I believe they are less than 9 thousand (since it's a sale probably just a bit less than that). I also read somewhere that they are manufactured by Lothar Walther ( a very reputable firm engaged in the business for quite a number of years).

    Kamusta na ba ang armscor barrels and slides lately? I read good feedbacks from the other forums regarding Rock Islands. If our home made armscors can relatively stand up to abuse and no longer considered "soft" as some would earlier suggest, then thats good news! Bar stos and caspian are really quite expensive.

    OO nga mga sir kamusta na ba yung "sariling atin"(ARMSCOR barrel)? Kasi dyan din ako nagsimula noon at sana nakinig ako kila mterillo. They told me that I'll be better off with either branded barrels or the Mil-spec 779 barrels. Eh umandar ang pagiging kuripot ko kaya ayun after 3,000 rounds panay "Keyhole" na ang tama ng bala ko:freak: After I got the Metrillo's installed the 779 barrel it went up to 14,000rnds. It is a series 85 779 barrel and chrome lined kaya tumagal.:supergrin:

    PS. Can you guys verify that report about getting a new FA license just to get a barrel? Mukang panibagong racket na naman nila yan ah.:upeyes:

    I inquired from Twinpines last month about whether you have to apply for a license in acquiring a new barrel, but I was informed that I don't have to. I just don't know if the info. was accurate.

    Here in Iloilo city, Twin Pines sells the Ironsides barrel. Tinanong ko yung saleslady if I need some paperworks kung sakaling bilhin ko yung barrel, she said "Naku sir kailangang ipa-license na, nahuli ka lang ng isang linggo kasi dati puwede kahit wala". That was about three weeks ago. TP also sells Rock Island Armory barrel for Php 3.5T. :upeyes:

    Regarding buying extra barrel/s, Crame requires that you register that barrel but you don't need to renew it every 2 yrs. But who register extra barrel/s? I have not known any shooters who did that. Tip - Don't ask for a receipt.
