I donít know of any other air gun manufacturers in Sweden. So I wonder, if air gunning and the FX brand are as popular in Sweden as they are in the rest of the world?

Amazing. When they charge $2k for a gun you know why.

Over 2k for a gun and I see a guy no more than 25 tuning aka bending aluminum barrels . I just can't justify the price.

Travis,

I thought the barrel liners were steel, but hoped they might be stainless steel.  If you know that they are aluminum, I would be a bit disappointed.

The Liners ARE NOT Aluminium! They are steel!
I have 3 of them and just did a Magnet test on the .25 Liner
You want a picture?
However, Don't EVER try to drive a jam out from stacking pellets by pounding them out!
My .25 liner has several bumps from me being stupid. So will probably cut it down for a different project.

Let's not make false claims just from a video.

NOT ALUMINIUM BARRELS!
Even the barrel sleeve the liner goes in is STEEL!
Only the Shroud is Aluminium.
