“aa_limited”hmm mabe a take out choke for the twist or rotate the barrel?
​ or interchange a barrel. if twist is due to barrel change.. it will cost us 500 bucks to do it.
crazy hey


aa_limited:
The exchange barrels are liners for the main barrel.
Looks as though you could get 5 different liners for your price estimate of one. $99 has been mentioned.

This is a real move forward and if it proves out, I predict Daystate, AA and other top makers will be attempting something similar;  or making spare barrels with twist rates copied from FX after FX has already optimized for our best few pellets of various weights. Cheaper competitive barrels may be the outcome.
I have not acquired a new rifle in over 4 years as I already have   the most accurate ones, excepting a Thomas.
I will get a Crown .  … Kind regards, Harry in OZ.
