    The website appears to be gone and no mention of them on Falkor site. I wanted to try one of their 6.5CM barrels on an Aero Precision upper.

    You didn’t miss much, we’ve got a couple, and they shoot decent, but their gas system sucked, no matter where you moved the gas tube they are still extremely overgassed, and their claim to fame was no cold bore poi shift, well there is. Plenty of as good if not better barrels for less money out there.

    Do you want to try a 6 creedmoor barrel ? I have one unfired that I haven't installed.
    @Easy_E any chance you would do me a huge favor and look at the screws of the gas block, dwell chamber, or whatever they wanted to call it and tell me the thread pitch and length of the screws that hold it down. I lost 3 of them somewhere when I moved and now the company is closed down so nowhere to ask to be able to replace them.

    Wasn't this the company with that goofy gas block setup where they claimed you could adjust dwell time?

    I forget the specifics, but recall looking into it and thinking it seemed like an odd gimmick to put on an otherwise decent barrel. IME, snake oil eventually gets found out...

    Shows that now their lifetime warranty, you can’t shoot this barrel out, rambling of nonsense is shut down. Luckily I only bought one on a Black Friday sale for right under 400. In all honesty though the barrel isn’t bad, it’s over gassed with no real way to fix it. But for the most part it shoots sub moa at 100 (barely) and performs okay. So I guess not a complete waste of money. And it’s a good conversation starter when people see it.

    Yes it is that company, they are definitely overgassed, and ain’t a damn thing you can do about it because of their stupid ass gas system.

    I'll dig one out tonight and check the size
