Forums General Discussion Floating Barrel ? Reply To: Floating Barrel ?



I don’t understand the fuss about free floating barrles at all. More trouble than it’s worth if you ask me. The Cricket is known to be accurate and uses 4 screws to hold the barrel in place, same as Mutant and Vulcan. Some say that causes POI shift but that is false, it only causes POI shift if the screws are not tightened properly/equally when the airtube pressure goes down. So long as the screws have the same ammount of torque I think it is far superiour to a free floating barrel. I would constantly worry about bumping the free one, My Cricket I feel much more comfortable carrying in a soft case and bumping it around.
