I've heard some slobber about the polly ones which sounds good but have no experience so I'll not regurgitate it.

how come you need a new barrel mate?
when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

Hi m8 on the early gladiators you have a really thin barrel as thin as the evo with a shroud over it with a gap around it with about five inch space in between the end of the barrel and silencer crap design I've already cut my shroud down by five inches but would prefer a 16mm barrel and get rid of the shroud completely,they tried to make a silencer out of the shroud theres a small hole so the sound can travel down the full length of the silencer and it didn't work also the pellet can clip the silencer because of the five inch void,mine shoots fine now I've modded it and is better than standard but would like to have a solid barrel like my .177 one :thumbup:

Funny that, I have a cut down Gladiator barrel on top of the cupboard due to cliping, the cheapest option would be to get a Walther barrel done but they would need the old barrel for the brass fitment on the breech end.
I think from memory the barrel has just about enough meat on it to put a 1/2" unf thread on the end, so you could take it to an engineer and do it that way.
