These barrels, produced in metal, have cooling holes drilled around the tubing - just hold the barrels up to the light and you can see straight through. Remarkable!

Assembly is very simple. All you have to do is insert a barrel - Karaya recommend a 0.6 injection needle (included) - inside the perforated tubing and voila! A superb representation of the Browning barrel unit.

The set includes the main body of one gun. This represents a super detailing set to add to any model requiring this type of gun.

 

 

This Browning barrel set is yet another super product from this Polish firm and well recommended.

Further details about these little gems, and their other products, can be found on their new web site www.karaya.ilawa.com and obtained from either their main distributor, 'AirConnection' or 'Model Supply Team'.
 

They are sold in two different sets:-
 

  • B001 - Contains 4 barrels (with needle) and resin breech of machine gun.

  • B002 - Contains 4 barrels (with needle) only, for those who just want to replace the barrels.
