shot slower with a more deliberat aim it's not realy nessasery on a long arm
Plus the slots are cut the oposit way to those we use on air strippers
Don't know wether strippers work or not but they look good

Hi Aitch , thanks for enlightening me on the reasons for magna porting a barrel ,I knew nothing about it.I wonder if you could help me further, could you explain in more detail what you mean by " the slots are cut the opposite way to those we use on air strippers".

Many thanks Ger.
