The barrel starts as a mirror “smooth” blank and the inside is never touched by tooling.. the entire barrel length is pressed from the outside with the rifling to form the Smooth twist” internally. This new system should prove a better consistent spin rate on pellets and prevent the “run up and strip” effect on the previous design. I am very interested to see if this raises the pellets B.C over the older smooth bore barrels that have shown lower B.Cs over traditional hammer forged and button rifled barrels in my testing. 
Very interesting times ahead.
