Never heard of any barrel issues. Does your friend HAVE the gun or just his repeating some story he heard? I’ve fired my BB version a lot and no issues. It’s a fun gun for plinking. It is even more accurate if you use 7.0 grain lead pellets with the smooth bore barrel. Just insert the pellet like you do a BB, then use a ball point pen to seat the pellet just past the plastic insert in the “cartridge”. In my and my son’s guns, the pellet is more accurate than the BB’s. If you get the pellet version, don’t use steel BB’s in it.
