Awesome data :)
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

Interesting but I have zero interest for a 7" barrel for my FiveSeveN.

Right..

The only way I could be tempted is if there was also a really pretty compensator I could attach. Not that the 5.7 needs one..
Can't ruin such a pretty gun with a pipe/tube sticking out the end.

Or 1:7 twist.... For suppressed use. With a heavier/more commonly available bullet options. (Critical defense brass bullets, tracers, 62gr..) So many good options that we have no replacement for! I'll still be on the lookout, even if Jay doesn't support it. Im an experimenter.


Really wish I could've gone with a tighter twist on my 5.4 barrel...

Sigh.

Comp ports can be added to the shroud.

Twist rates for heavier bullets won't matter since you can't push the heavier bullets very well in the first place. There are just limits you can't overcome.

Not gonna lie. I find the look of the 7" barrel to be horribad. Why do you want it to look that way?

Barrel for performance.

This is why I am making a shroud/comp for it.

Speaking of which, what's the current turn around time on trigger jobs?

About 2 months. This time of the year we run a special discount on accurizing and most customers know this so they wait until now to send them in. It is 15% off so it's a heck of a deal.

They are custom made for EA by EFK when EFK has the free time on thier machines.

We are hoping to have EFK do a run in 4 to 6 months but it comes down to EFK having the open time on thier machines.
