The quality of the machining has to be seen to be appreciated........these are amazingly detailed and of the highest quality.  This set includes 2 turned brass barrels with drilled cooling jacket. It is very simple to use on your model, and makes it extremely realistic. Simply cut off the original plastic barrel and drill a hole in the remaining parts and insert the metal barrel using Cyanoacrylate adhesives.

These gun barrels are highly detailed and will be a big improvement over the plastic kit parts. 

You can purchase these and other fine detail items directly from the Master website.   

I would like to thank Master for providing me with this product sample.  Visit their website for more finely crafted detail items in a variety of scales.
