    Light VS Heavy barrel

    Is there a difference other than weight?

    Nope.

    Accuracy test results show negligible differences.

    I'm assuming the barrel in the L will get hotter than a Heavy barrel yes? No warping? Are these machine gun barrels?

    They will heat slower,but again the difference is nill after it does,except that it cools slower.

    I suppose if you want to shoot hundreds of rounds non-stop a H barrel might be the way to go? Other than that I love my thin barreled XCR.

    the real story of the wieght difference is the balance of the rifle. it is changed significantly. more than the 13oz would seem to do.

    A fluted HBAR will def be cooler due to surface area. Plus they just look Bad A!. See Phils Thread.
