Default flimsy barrel

I was thinking of doing mine, but the flimsyness puts me off, and the fact that they don't come out of the factory floated, so there must be a reason for this.
the barrel does flex but when released does go back into position ! i'm thinking that the barrels are very strong ie u wouldnt bend one over your knee :-)
