The latest development in pushing the limits of accuracy from HunterSeeker5 has arrived, the barrel lapping system. Some of you may have heard or even tried barrel polishing in the past and noticed it offers some advantage. Well polishing and lapping are not the same process. Where simple polishing removes micro scratches from the surface and improves surface finish it does not make any attempt at leveling the surface. Lapping uses abrasive embedded plates to file down high spots and level the surface while still leaving a mirror finish. This smoother surface on both the micro and macro level allows BBs to glide along the barrel with minimal disturbance and off axis spin. This system works great on both cheap stock barrels and high end Japanese barrels, while high end barrels have much better than stock tolerances they are still far from the surface you get from lapping. This is the level 2 kit so it includes everything needed for two levels of lapping, a coarser mid level to level larger surface defects and a finer CrOX compound for a top level finish on any uncoated barrel. By uncoated I mean brass and stainless are fine while most aluminum aren't. These are the 2nd gen version of the lapps that have 3 sections instead of two. These have more spring structure to them so they fit in barrels easier and provide a more even lapp. More information below:
