Concave?!! It should be Convex.  That's not good.  Have you compare it to another bucking you have purchase?  if it's different give me a call in the office.

I wish I could have told you this before you bought the Prometheus barrel.....

Edgi barrels are supposed to be the best barrels besides PDI.  According to TCF, the 6.01mm Edgi performs pretty similar to the PDI 6.01mm and are around half the price.

I've heard they make barrels specifically for KWA AEGs, but I guess you would have to call them ask about them because they aren't listed on the site.  (They make them a few mms smaller around the bucking section so it can fit in the KWA hop up)

I haven't purchased another bucking yet (waiting on some cash to come my way in the next couple weeks so I can order one and some other airsoft things I need) so I don't have anything in my hands to compare it to. There is a bump in the bucking, but basically it looks like a little crater. So the edges of the "crater" will come through the hole in the barrel but the "crater" itself basically sits flush with the rest of the inside of the barrel so no bump within the barrel is created, even with the hopup tuned all the way.

You know, I actually looked into these as well but had heard so many good things about the Prommys that I decided against it as it was a relative unknown to me. I got a good deal on the Prommy and few other manufacturers make a barrel in 407mm anyway which was the length I wanted (didn't see a lot of point in downgrading on the length of the barrel to 363mm).

Do you know when they are going to make a website where you can order the barrels online, opposed to having to call them up and buying one? I was looking into buying one for my UTG m324, but now, I think I may get one for my KWA  ;)

You can have them custom make a barrel for you and I don't believe they charge more.  :)  Not trying to burst your bubble, just saying ha ha

I think you can email them, but they prefer if you call them.
