    Doc's New Ultrashort, Ultralight "Tanto" Freak Barrel

    Update! This is now officially known as the Tanto Barrel!

    Hot off the press, I now have a large supply of my latest piece, a very light and very compact one-piece Freak-insert barrel:



    It's just 8-3/4" long, WGP/'Cocker threaded, takes any Smart-Parts/GOG/SP Freak insert, and weighs just 65 grams.



    They're in stock and available now for just $28 each plus shipping. (Polished aluminum at the moment, black anno is coming soon!)

    My PM box fills too fast here, so please email me at doc@docsmachine.com to order. Shipping inside the US will be just $6.50 for a total of $34.50. To speed things up a bit, just email me your PayPal address and I'll send you a payment request for the total.

    Thank you!
    Doc.

    Black's in the works, as well as a couple of additional barrel threads, but they're a few weeks out.

    Thanks everybody!

    Oh, damn... I like that. I need to check when I get home. How many are you keeping in polished raw?

    I'll keep a small stash in raw, several dozen, probably, but most people want 'em annoed, so most of the current batch is heading out shortly.

    Are you asking which one to go with?

    There are hundreds of people out there selling insert kits or even inserts, singlely. So you can build a kit with what you want/use or have them all to cover any possibilities. Either the SP original ones, the SP stainless ones and then the Empire inserts.

    There have been many insert type barrels made, from the original OTP G-1 Dream series, that used sized collars at the beginning(at the breech) of the barrel, to Scepter, Freak, CCM, SM1, i think Bob Long did one and probably a couple others. The only one that has been "universally" accepted has been the SP freak. So the others are more kit specific, where any freak barrel will take any freak insert.

    Can you whip up a few in 11"? TK says that was the most efficient size if I remember correctly....

    If this happens, I'd like 1 of each raw.

    Emailed you with my PayPal address. Send me a request for payment. Polished aluminum pleases!

    EDIT: Thanks doc! Can't wait to see the new piece! Will post pics sooner or later.

    Also, I have a Dye ultralite that is uselessly over sized, (.693?)

    Can you machine it to accept freak inserts?

    It has custom anodizing, can said machining be done with out risking the anodization?

    Thanks, Jim

    First off, Tanto barrels are now posted up in my recently-updated online store!

    Second, yes indeed, black is in the works, as are a limited number of other barrel threads, like Ion and the later Angels.

    Third, yes indeed, I can bore an Ultralite with little or no damage to the anodizing. Drop me an email and we can hash out the details.

    Doc.

    Received item, looks great, will post pics when done moving.

    Just curious, what's the inside supposed to look like?

    -The bore was more or left "as machined". It may appear a bit rough, but keep in mind that the front half of the barrel- anything ahead of the insert- is basically just muzzle brake. The ball doesn't touch it, just like the tip section of a regular Freak barrel.
