Finished with Rhino tough Truck Bed paint.
Ribbed for your shooting pleasure.
Over 12" long and 1.5" diameter.

Although the 1.5" Black Mamba makes a bold statement, I may make a 2" and/or 3" version.
The limiting factor would be interference with the scope sight.

This would be the Black Mamba Xtreme.

Maybe my eyes deceive me, but in your picture, it appears the LDC is sagging on the barrel.  They don't look straight...Any problems with accuracy?

Not to worry, your eyes are fine.
The pictures were taken with my trusty Kodak DX6340 with a 36mm lens, nature of the beast.

It looks like it's slightly curved in the picture but it's arrow straight.
Both the 1st and 2nd stage tubes are cantilevered back onto the barrel.
The unpainted BM picture looks curved also.
Accuracy is dead on as before with the 21" Challenger barrel.

Took out 110 fox squirrels in 2017 with this gun.
