From where are the .25 caliber XS28M barrels sourced from.
Are the manufactured in China or is the production of the .25 caliber barrels outsourced.

The barrels are Chinese.I doubt if the Chinese outsource anything.Quality is good on the one I bought.The pivot pin hole on these barrels in .25 cal is VERY close to the bore.

bottle guns to .25? If not why,and where could I get that done if I wanted? I really like my QB 79 HPA in .22,and feel it would be a real beast in .25 with a bottle on the front with a little vavle work.I think that would be a good under the tree squirrel,or rabbit gun!I one shot kill coons with my .22 I know the .25 would really anchor them! Yes,one shot between the eye,and ear,a little twitching,and it's over.Let me know what yous think.Keep the lead flying,I do!

Might serve as a source for a barrel blank.
But, it will require some machining and airgunsmithing to fit the barrel to QB 79 breech. <div> </div>
