    Would someone know the spec's of the new ( Gen 2) FX 700 mm slug barrel:

    I gather its a 1:16 twist, 700 mm LG, is it traditional Land/Groove, Polygonal, smooth twist or smooth twist X barrel.

    Knowing the Land / Groove dimensions (eg. .217/.214) would be great.

    The FX chart says it's 1:15 twist https://www.airgunnation.com/topic/official-fx-stx-barrel-liner-twist-rates/

    Rifling is rolled into the tube from the outside just like the STX barrel but the choke is different.

    Matt Dubber says it never needs cleaning.

    Here is a video explaining slug liners. It's long but you should watch the whole video.

    30gn vs golf ball @ 100 m (one in a million)

    WARNING: do not shoot golf balls at close range (less than 50y) since the pellet / slug tend to bounce back..it can be dangerous.
