Carbon IC SS8 Barrel
The Carbon IC SS8 Barrel is a two-piece barrel system that was designed with two characteristics in mind—durability and light weight. The proximal end of the barrel is made of an injected carbon-plastic composite for maximum durability while also ensuring an extremely light weight. This portion of the barrel only weighs about one ounce.
The distal end of the barrel is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and is ported to make it as light as possible. The barrel is made to be used with Freak XL barrel inserts (both steel and aluminum) which fit perfectly into Carbon’s latest barrel. The aluminum section of the barrel weighs approximately 2.4oz meaning that the entire barrel only weighs 3.4oz. For a more in-depth review of the Carbon IC SS8 Barrel, check out the video below:
