This user doesn't get it. You can't advertise items for sale on ASF, without it being in the Buy/Sell/Trade Section. If you have multiple items of the same origin, that would make you a re-seller. And applicable to ASF's seller/sponsor program rules.

Also, Pyrotechnic based airsoft items are NOT allowed on ASF.

This user now has a 100% warning, and is BANNED from ASF.

well for mine, its not exactly flaking, its more like rubbing and peeling.
if u take a flashlight and shine it down the tip of the barrel, u can see white stuff from the bb and shiny silver from the barrel inside the barrel.
its a 455mm Version 2 madbull barrel (black one).
also noticed my accuracy seems to have dropped a little too. =[

if your bbs are leaving flakes you need new BB's, theyre destroying your barrel.

well opsic66, try taking a really bright light and shine it down the front of the barrel. I didnt notice it until some sunlight hit it and caught my eye.\
u have to look at it at a angle or ur just gonna be looking at complete darkness or the glare of the coating reflecting
btw, that barrel is in the gun in my signature.

I clean my barrels after every outing, and I check them with a Streamlight Stinger (115lumen) flash light. So far so good. *(crosses fingers). I'm a bit over protective, yet abusive to my guns.

I have a Madbull V2 in my MP5 now, which I haven't cleaned in MONTHS. Probably over 10k through it without cleaning.. I'll have to check that one.

I also only run AE and Bioval BB's.

-Speaking of the pic in your sig. It's too big man. Sorrty, forum rules... 115Hx600L Max.

I have a 247mm ver1 in my MP5. Been through 30K rounds KSC .25s. I also have a 363mm ver2 in my G36C. That one is kind of new, only about 10K rounds.

No problems so far.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our Attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you... We are in charge of our attitudes.

when you look inside a madbull barrel and it appears to have anno rubbed off (silver or white) it does not effect performance, the anno is a very thin layer and tends to rub off from the bbs backspin and is basic barrel break in, in all barrels they get the same wear its just not visible cus its clearcoat instead of a black annodizing like madbulls.
