Funny story, I bought a carbon barrel from benchmark last November. It’s actually up there right now getting chambered. I was so excited and talking out my *** about the advantages I’d learned from the internet. Kourtney was quick to educate me on carbon barrels. The glue and resin in carbon barrels holds the heat, weight savings on a benchmark carbon is minimal because they don’t turn them down as much as proof and carbon is done mostly for aesthetics.
She did however explain to me how is does make a difference in harmonics a little and how well they shoot. So, that’s the last time I talk out my *** to the pros about what I learned on the internet,…. Since it’s my first Barbie gun I don’t mind having the carbon barrel to up the aesthetic nature. I know it will shoot well either way. Benchmark is a fantastic place!
