Okay, I bought this barrel kit after reading dozens of good reviews on it. However when I got it in the mail I was appalled. First off, all of the inserts had rough burrs and a lot of streaking inside. Second, the inserts did not sit all the way into the back, they stopped short of the back at about 3/8 of an inch. Third, the back did not screw into my gun flush, when the back was screwed into my gun I could fit a penny in the crack between barrel and marker. Fourth the tips have an O-Ring on them that is meant to seal the two halves, the back was machined so poorly that the O-Ring made no contact with the back at all. I was like, okay, I got a factory defect. I sent the whole kit back to Powerlyte thinking it was a factory defect, they call me about 4 days later and tell me this is how they make them, that the offsets are there for a reason, so I get my money back and buy a Freak kit.
I do not recommend this product to anyone, if you want something that is the same concept but better quality get the Empire Revolver, also though I hate to say it, the Freak kit is not half bad.
If you want a barrel that wont screw into your gun all the way with terrible blow by and inserts the could break paint then by all means get this!
I give this barrel a 2 because it sucks but it comes with a nice case.
I think you have the wrong barrel. The Freak with the aluminum inserts are the ones that have the legendary horrible quality control. Anyways, the Empire Revolver Kit is made by Powerlyte. You can even ask their customer service person. I'm not saying this is a bad review, but I think you just get a lemon.
-got a lemon and would have been very pleased had PL sent you a new one
-got the wrong threads for your marker
-put the inserts in backwards.
My system works flawlessly. I can't imagine how a system would be that terrible and get past qc. If it did, tho, just contact PL. Again, they would have hooked you up with a new one if it had actually been their fault.
