This stainless steel barrel combined with the r-hop is the best barrel you can get for the price point. The Prometheus R-hop barrel is our top recommendation for most players. They are manufactured in Japan with very high tolerances, and the barrels come very straight out of the box. They use superior SUS304 steel compared to other barrels on the market. The polished internal bore and r-hop give enhanced range and accuracy to the user. The internal bore has a diameter of 6.03mm, making it an effective tight bore while still remaining practical. In conclusion, we highly recommend this option for most players that are looking for the best range and accuracy upgrade they can get at a reasonable price.

How long does it take to process an r-hop or service order?

Each orders can include labor intensive services like: r-hop installation, machining, tuning, quality control and testing, etc. High quality products cannot be rushed, we would rather take our time to send you the best product, then to rush out a bad one.

For this reason, there is a 2-3 week lead time for most rhop orders to ship. In the uncommon case you experience an order delay, please be patient with us; rest assured, your order will arrive as soon as it is completed. If you need something with a specific deadline, please contact us first.

For other physical products in our store that don’t require labor, they will ship same day or within 1 business day.

What can cause a order delay?

One of the important things we do to upkeep our golden standard for Rhop installations is Quality Control and Testing each and every rhop/barrel. This is not something most rhop retailers would do, but we do not cut corners.
Although, this can potentially delay an order since it relies on good weather and no wind for testing conditions. During testing, if your rhop happen to potentially fail our strict quality testing, this may cause delay to the order as well, since we will be re-installing your rhop. We take quality serious.

How can I track my order?

You’ll receive a shipping confirmation email with tracking information the moment your order ships!

For r-hop and service orders, your tracking email notification will arrive when the order is near completion or being queued up for work.
