I am doing the AFV M728 CEV. Changed the cupola over to resin and want to replace the .50 barrel. All the replacement barrels I seem to find are the typical basic .50 barrel. The kit barrel has a multi prong brake on it. Not like the current barrels, just plain "Ol .50 barrel with a "Brake" on it. Anyone know where I can get a brass replacement? I will cut and use the kit barrel if need be but would rather go with brass. Thanks for any info on this !!!

You can find a very nice 3D print M85 barrel over on Shapeways. I picked up some for my M60 builds.
