I see RB Barrels has one, anyone else produce a barrel? Which is considered the best?
Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.
Cheers

This should give you a good idea of what's out there.

Hello Andrew
You may have discovered by now that we ourselves - Leopard Workshop that is - now offer 2A5 barrels.

Please take a look here:http://leopardclub.ca/workshop/LW018T/

We do different fittings for Revell or Tamiya. The Tamiya barrel will also fit Hobby Boss.

We also have 2A4 and have now introduced Leopard 1 barrels.

All the best

I'm a little behind with updates to the Leopard lists. I am the webmaster for the Leopard Club site and Michael has been keeping me rather busy with new products, such as Leo 1 & 2 barrels. I don't have any of the recently released Leopard Workshop barrels on the Leo 1 or 2 kit lists yet (sorry).

I was just photographing a Leo 2A4M-CAN yesterday and I can verify that Michael's 2A5|6 barrel is spot on with the fume extractor texture being beautifully depicted.
