    a one piece barrel is all one piece, whereas a two piece barrel is made up of two pieces, and can be unscrewed.

    To tell them apart, try to unscrew it;)

    The one piece boomstick is still a two piece, it's just fixed because the parts a glued together. The advantage that dye gave to the glue was that it is perfectly centred...but they now say their screw-in ones are just as good. So with a screw one, you can change the backs, but you cant with a glued one.

    Glued one is still plenty good-a-barrel, and you can probably get it cheaper too :)

    I personally would only ever use 1 barrell.

    Gotta be a 2 piece All-American Barrell, light, accurate and damn they look sweet!

    i think they made them in 2 ,because it takes longer to make a 1 piece barrel ,which means more dosh to buy!!


    go with the AA barrels.nice ..

    ok dont get confused by all the waffle
    dye barrels ie boomsticks and ultralites have always been 2 peice the only difference is that the older ones were glued and the new ones screw together makeing it poss to swap back sections around to change bore size.

    there is no difference in performance between them at all

    also it is nearly impossible in the uk to get hold of back sections on their own and if you want to get hold of a barrel with a none standard bore you will more than likely have to special order it

    i have only used a one peice and i think that would be better so the bore sise is the same all the way down the barrel
