Perfectly turned aluminum gun tube with a brass muzzle brake. They are separate parts, of course, but assembled for this scan. The parts are perfectly formed and shaped. Make sure not to recess too much of the barrel into the gun shield and mantlet, so that it doesn't end up too short. Note that the full length of this barrel will be visible only on the Firefly. For the Achilles (M10 17pdr), much of the rear of the barrel is hidden within the gun shield, so the barrel extending out the front is much shorter. This barrel looks identical to the barrel from RB Model.
