    Bumping this thread up to see how the rifle has been working out.

    I'm interested in the air polygon barrel as I have an FX Streamline with a STX barrel.

    I bought the rifle to see how a slower twist rate and smooth twist barrel compared with my other rifles, it is good, but not good enough to displace my other rifles. I am going to see how the FX performs in BR, hence the question.
